    What I can say is that Jay Q is coming hard this year and beyond. By now, most of us can say that Jay Q is not only a jama sound engineer/producer. What do you think of the Castro’s latest song, “Concentrate” Every time Jay Q floods the music scene with his songs, we all get that itch.

    For some years now, Jay Q has been ploughing his trade in UK and USA which shows that his works are everywhere. Lovers of Ghanaian music also think that Jay Q needs to pop up once a while to remind his people that he is still breaking bottles.

    Jay Q’s output in most songs has given him notable spots like Ghana Music Award winner (2003) and other awards.

    What I can also say is that much of Jay Q’s accomplishment with his songs has revolved around shaping an artist's musical identity also. Instead of just giving a musician a beat to sing, he helps with the vocal content too.

    Jay Q's tutelage has been to help artistes like Castro, Shilo, Buk Bak who have varying degrees of success.

    “Bone Shaker by Castro”, is an example of the recognizable song and value of the good Jay Q’s skills. Castro took the core of the song and turned it into his own freestyle/performance anthem. Another example is “Ahomka Womu”, he crafted the track that breathed so softly that it required VIP to drive the song through lyrics and performance.

    Jay Q's relationship with artistes has been exceptional and he also maintained a steady presence on their albums that has not only built the engineer's identity but that of an entire genre; from the old to the new school. In other words Jay Q has crafted sounds that from the Daddy Lumbas to the Ofori Amponsahs and our country neighbour Nigerian musician, 9nice on his remix of ‘Gongo Aso’ all appreciate.
