LA-based DJ, producer, and songwriter Jay Pryor is back with a funky disco-house cut, “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now” via his own imprint Motherland.
Jay Pryor’s track is a colorful ode to his late mother and her faithful trust in his artistic endeavors. The song is a re-imagination of McFadden & Whitehead’s 1979 hit, as Jay Pryor’s new rendition is a club-ready cut armed with funky and nu-disco grooves that will get the listener moving and grooving.
Jay Pryor told us “It’s probably my favourite disco record of all time. I would always play it to pump me up. But when my mam passed away it was actually the last thing she said to me. I was explaining to her how well music was going and my plans for the future. When she heard me speak about my vision for the future she said ‘there’s no stopping you now’ which has rung through me since. I play it most mornings and it sets my intentions for what I want to make of myself and for her. The making of the edit is something my mam would laugh at. I actually made it when I got back from a date. I had been playing it before I left for the date to pump me up because I hadn’t been on a date in 3 years and I was shitting my kacks! The date went well and I was fairly hammered so when I got back I started blaring the tune in celebration and then sat down and made this exact edit. My mam would have been proud of me but also would have had a good laugh about the whole thing. This record is popularly recognised for its message of perseverance through adversity which is something that I resonate with in many ways, and I didn’t want to take much away from it, which is why I used a lot of the original instrumentation and of course the amazing vocal work.“
