Interview with Jay Pryor

20th May 2018 | Music

Positiva Records has been home to some of dance music’s biggest stars – including David Guetta, Avicii, Martin Garrix and even the hit ‘I Like To Move It’ by Reel 2 Reel.

The latest addition to the Positiva roster is a producer who has everything that it takes to take over and become the biggest DJ on the planet. Yes, we’re talking about Jay Pryor.

The bedroom producer-turned-chart topper from Dublin, Ireland saw his first hit helping out on the production on Louis Tomlinson and Steve Aoki’s ‘Just Hold On’ which charted at #2 on the UK Singles Charts. Since then, he has also provided the official remixes for the likes of Niall Horan, ZAYN (that makes 3/5 of One Direction!), American Authors and more.

His major label debut comes in the form of ‘Rich Kid$’ – a single about not needing to have any money whatsoever to feel rich! And it’s going to be a big summer banger (if we have our way with it, at least)!

James Gilmore interviewed Jay Pryor about his first gig, success so far and if he’s ready for his own big hit.
