  • #PassYourJAYS - Marlene

    2016-06-28

    Marlene in the studio

    Since her hyped debut in 2014, Marlene has toured in Sweden, England and the United States with appreciated and acclaimed live shows in clubs and festivals. In Sweden, she dominated the scene at P3 Guld together with Silvana Imam and the song “För Evigt”. Marlene became known to an even wider international audience as producer legend Giorgio Moroder did his version of Marlene's own song “I Do This For You” on his album ’Deja Vu’ and it climbed to the top of the Billboard charts.

    Her newest single “All I Want” is a flirty, summery track produced by the duo Humble & Blisse and Nisj (Producer of the Year) and written by Marlene together with Ji Nilsson. It has just come out in time for summer, and we couldn’t think of a better time to welcome Marlene to #PassYourJAYS with the quote below.

    “I want to give a pair of u-JAYS to my friend and manager Linda! She is the future of the music industry and a true music lover. I have sent my songs to her for feedback for years during my creative process and she has always been honest and acted as ‘my extra pair of ears’. I think she deserves listening to mine and others music in really good quality!”

    Best of luck with the new single!

  • #PassYourJAYS - Newtimers

    2016-06-16

    Newtimers

    Growing up, life was all about music for Tim and Andreas, the duo behind Newtimers. Tim grew up with touring musicians as parents, known, from a very early age, what his future would be about. Andreas grew up with a single, immigrant mother and on various institutions for problematic youth. Instead of school, he studied lyrics. You could say the stereo was his father. Parental guidance was not advised because that father of his, spreading the message of anything from Vivaldi to Wu Tang Clan, didn't have a filter.

    They met in the early 00’s as a drummer and a rapper being recruited to the same band and shortly thereafter formed their partnership which would become Newtimers. Recently, the duo has been noticeable for features on hit singels such as 'When The Night Is Over' by The Magician and 'Together' alongside CAZZETTE and now it's time to finally reveal what Newtimers really is about a three track EP. All in all, this is Swedish melancholy at its absolute finest.

    Active since 2004 with a debut release in 2016, Newtimers were once called ”the band everyone has heard of but nobody’s seen” by one of Sweden’s biggest newspapers. Well, they say good things come to those who wait, and we couldn’t be happier to celebrate Newtimers’ new EP by including them in the #PassYourJAYS initiative.

    "We wanna pass our JAYS to our dear friend Kendal Johansson. Being a brilliant songwriter, producer and soundartist he really needs good quality sound in his genius ears when he's walking around gathering inspiration. He's also a genuinely stylish man. Sweets for our sweet."

    Check out the new EP here.

    Let’s hope we don’t have to wait another 10 years to hear more from these two!

  • #PassYourJAYS - Brisa Roché

    2016-06-09

    Brisa Roche

    Brisa Roché was born in Arcata, California. Having a rural and somewhat secluded childhood she developed an assertive and unique personality. Her music career started as she moved to Paris and frequented the bars to play jazz piano. In 2005, signed to Blue Note, she released her debut album “The Chase” earning her a hasty comparison to Björk.

    Dissatisfied with her debut, Brisa decided not only to leave her previous label but also to shift from jazz to the folk rock genre – almost like something out of San Fransisco in ’67. To celebrate her latest release “Invisible 1”, made between California and Paris, we are happy to include Brisa in #PassYourJAYS.

    When we met her at Les Femmes s’en Mêlent music festival earlier this year and asked who she wanted to pass on a pair of u-JAYS to, this was her response:

    “To my manager! He is always there for me and he has given me headphones before. Also, I know that he doesn’t have any at the moment and that he loves the brand JAYS.”

    Check out the new album here.

  • #PassYourJAYS - Helluvah

    Helluvah

    Born in 1982 in Paris, Camille Warmé goes on the adventure Helluvah via a demo of 5 songs recorded at the end of 2005. After two albums well received and one EP noticed, Helluvah is back in March 2015 with her new album Long Distance Runners, released at Dead Bees Records. Passed by folk accents then by a second album more rock, Helluvah took a turn more electro-pop, without sacrificing the raw and nerve guitars.

    "Helluvah expands her universe by creating post industrial atmospheres that her singular voice manages to make mysterious and bewitching." - Télérama

    "Catchy, heady, warm or even hot" - Tsugi

    "Camille Warmé directly ran through the third gear without to clutch, and however she controls a hypnotic and dancing vehicle out of control." - Indiemusic

    Camille is more than welcome to our #PassYourJAYS concept, passing on a pair of u-JAYS On-ear headphones to her friend since 17 years, Magali, who ”courageously accompanied me on stage for the first time today, especially for Record Store Day!"

    Check out the video from their performance at our Paris Office for Record Store Day, and follow #PassYourJAYS in social media for more tributes and love of music.

    Jonas Svennem, Winhill/Losehill

    Jonas Svennem is the lead vocalist of Swedish six-member band Winhill/Losehill. The band released their debut album “Swing of Sorrow” in 2012 and received overwhelmingly positive reviews.

  • #PassYourJAYS - Vitaphone

    2016-05-04

    Vitaphone

    From psychedelic lullaby to hysterical guitar chords, Vitaphone plays free and creative rock’n’roll. Every track questions the identity of this multi-faceted band, causing disco balls to fall off the ceiling and melt into boiling broth. A supernatural voice and flexible sonic material draw halos of green light around Vitaphone.

    After performning at JAYS Paris office for Record Store Day 2016 we just had to include them in #PassYourJAYS. On the question who Vincent of Vitaphone wanted to pass his u-JAYS On-ear headphones to - he responded:

    Vincent (Vitaphone) : "Hey Alice...are you happy with your headphone?"
    Alice (his partner) : "Well...not really!"
    Vincent : "So to Alice ! Why? Because we play in the band together! Because we play music together! And it's important that she listens music with professional headphone."

Her first EP “Blue is the saddest color” came out in November and we’re proud to include her in our #PassYourJAYS initiative.

  • #PassYourJAYS - Nisj

    2016-04-22

    Nils Svennem Lundberg

    Swedish producer Nisj originates from Umeå in the north of Sweden. Since his move to Stockholm some 10 years ago he has produced music with names like Silvana Imam, Michel Dida and many more.

    Earlier this year he was rewarded a Swedish Grammy as producer of the year. We’re thrilled to include Nisj as part of the #PassYourJAYS initiative.

    “I wish to give a pair of u-JAYS headphones to my friend, Karin Gyllenklev. We - together with Jesper Rönndahl and Katrin Kasström - made science radio together for almost 5 years. Karin is a very sharp person who succeeds in conveying dense knowledge in an easygoing manner. Where Karin lives, she is also surrounded by lot of woods, fields, small mountains and lakes. Ideal for long walks with good listening.”

  • #PassYourJAYS - Cléa Vincent

    2016-04-13

    Cléa Vincent

    Cléa Vincent is a young Parisian capable of anything, like the release of her two electro albums in 2014. Electronic music is in her blood from growing up in the late 90's and the 2000's with a curiosity about the French repertoire from France Gall to Daho through Elli & Jacno. Naive, fresh and deeply addictive.

    As part of #PassYourJAYS Cléa would like to pass a pair of u-JAYS On-ear headphones to "Lucie, the singer from Bon Voyage Organization. She represents the musician singer and dancer wife; natural and sensual as I like."
