Going Underground with Jay Perlestein

From hypnotic sets to energetic sessions, Jay Perlestein wraps the dance floor with a mix of Deep House, Tech House and Techno rhythms fused with the sounds of House, Disco and Electronica, creating an atmosphere full of dramatic and traveling melodies, powerful bass lines and Latin touches, a combination that sets him apart.

Jay can be found playing all over Mexico. He is a Resident DJ for: Fest-ON, Project Sound and 3rd Eye Music; Also from terrace Be Roof in Playa del Carmen, Mex. Any poster coming out of a variety of places in Mexico? Chances are you will see Jay’s name on it.

Modern Agenda happily released Jay Perlestein’s first release on Beatport alongside two other Mexican artists, Gustavo Logo and Audictive. His EP Moon Road came out July 1, 2019.

The Original Mix of Moon Road sets the mood for the entire EP. Its eeriness is only counteracted by the grittiness and this makes for a powerful, melodic, emotive track. Once the breakdown hits, all are curious how the story plays out, hooked on what’s to come. This one is more for the introspective music lovers, for the darkest hours of the night.

Jay Perlestein is making his way over the ocean to ADE this year and we have him on our showcase line up at Kashmir Lounge, Oct 18. You’ll be able to catch him live and hear his sound first hand.

Until then, press play on this mix and read up on our five questions. We didn’t edit Jay’s responses and you can “hear” his personality shine through. He’s talented, yes, but he is a really nice guy too.

Thanks for taking the time to make us a mix and answer our questions, Jay!

Describe the moment you realized you were destined to make music. Or even if not, “meant”, when did you decide to take the leap and try?

I think it was many years ago when I recently discovered electronic music, because it fascinated me to imagine what they would have done to create each of those sounds that blew my head and gave me a feeling of chills every time the track evolved. from that moment I knew that some day I would like to create those sounds and therefore music, at that time I was listening to Progressive trance & Minimal Techno, Lol

Describe your career to the year, to the three years and now. Where are you going from here?

It’s been 6 years since I started this story, this project was born after years of practice and define where I wanted to point: Jay Perlestein; I feel that they went by so fast if I think about it, and at the same time so many things happened that they feel like a whole life, when I arrived in Playa del Carmen it was where everything started to grow very fast, I feel grateful to have shared the stage with many talents ; Being part of the producers Project Sound and Go Out, Fest-On is an important achievement for me; and at the same time they are a fundamental part of my growth as an artist, I will always be grateful for their constant support, and we will continue.

This year without a doubt has been very important for me, and of course for my career as an artist, because after years of self-made attempts, and after several months of study and real dedication I was able to come up with a Track that I felt ready for was heard by all as mine, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Gustavo Lobo and perphetual studio for their support and for the great remixes, and of course to Modern Agenda for opening the doors to me in their Label, infinite thanks.

And soon they will be listening to a lot of music from me, music from the heart of course, and I think that is where I want to take this, dreams fulfilled more and more often!

What changes did you experience as an artist and in your personal life, you discover that you have changed as a person over the years in which you have been an active artist? If so, how?

Without a doubt, it helped me to mature as a person, because when you take something seriously to make it vibrate in the right way, this helps you to align all the other aspects of your life, with clear ups and downs but always lifting.

What is your best source of inspiration and how do you find yourself in a creative mood when you do not feel especially inspired?

The music of the 80s, rock and pop can inspire me a lot, without a doubt listening to a couple of tracks from my favorites, or from my favorite producers helps if I’m a little discouraged.

Where can people find their work online (social links) and what are the details of upcoming concerts and / or releases?


Recently I will be doing a small tour through the center of the country, including on August 31 one of my favorite festivals in the heart of Veracruz: Sunset Soul, truly a unique experience in an eco-resort in the middle of the jungle, full contact with nature , sharing with great artists like Rick Pier O’neil, Amber Long, Neo Human … and many will surely surprise you !, super recommended for those who like the underground scene.

Soon my next EP will be released in the Label 3er Eye Music, based on tulum, be aware of the networks for more info.
