World Of Wonders is a new label in the Multiverse network of forward-thinking electronic music labels which includes Tectonic, Kapsize, Earwax, Caravan and Build. Around the latter part of 2008 Bristol producer Joker made a relatively innocent comment about his sound being best described -- not as dubstep -- but as "Purple" or "Purple WoW." Along with his production cohorts Gemmy and Guido the trio soon became known as the "Purple Trinity." The three producers injected a lively melodic element to dubstep -- twisting the beats into an aqua crunk framework, blending the best elements of dubstep, bass and dancefloor aesthetics with crunked-out hip hop flavors, '80s synth sounds and -- most importantly -- melodic hooks that get stuck in your head for weeks. This compilation charts the course of the "Purple" sound over the last 5 years highlighting key tracks in its history -- focusing on Joker, Gemmy and Guido's output -- but also featuring the likes of Rustie, Ginz, Mensah, Baobinga and L-Wiz either in collaborative guises or producing solo. This is the essential "Purple WoW" compilation -- anything else out there is a weak imitation.
