APPLE PIPS RECORDINGS (UK)
"With the success of our last releases getting props and plays from DJs as diverse as Erol Alkan, DJ T, Martyn, Deetron, & Rob Da Bank we are really excited to present our next slice of futuristic funk for your ears and booty from the extremely talented Joe. With his debut, the awesome
, being released on Hessle Audio, Joe is part of a loose group of likeminded and future-thinking producers & DJs that includes Hessle Audio's Ramadanman, Ben UFO, & Pangaea, and Untold & James Blake. Whilst they all have very individual sounds, they share a vision of dubstep, UK Funky, techno & house influenced beats that seem to defy genre. The A-side 'Untitled' is a huge stepping wad of funk, bringing to mind 2-step, early Skream & Benga, even stripped down grime classics like Pulse X, but with a truly contemporary twist. This tune drops hard, and has been a secret weapon of Appleblim's for some time now -- he was pleasantly surprised to see ravers of all ages go mad to it! The flip sees Joe's more experimental leanings come out on 'Digest', but he never forgets the groove and funk. With rolling percussion, steppy sub bass and shiny analogue synth stabs cutting through, it seems to us like a mixture of Mala from Digital Mystikz and Theo Parrish! High praise indeed. DJ/Radio support coming from Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1), Modeselektor, Peverelist, Rob Da Bank (Radio 1/Bestival), Paul Woolford, Ramadanman, Brackles, Appleblim & many more."
MB/Studio Power On
"With releases as rare as a week of sunshine in London, and a profile that makes Burial look press hungry, it's with great pleasure we give you Joe's first tracks of 2012. Two wickedly sleazy and satisfyingly peculiar tunes that as you'd expect, completely defy categorisation. 'MB'- A loopy, sleazy, slo-mo roller with the slinkiest guitar lick riding a big-boned bassline. As with all of Joe's tunes, a little = A LOT. 'Studio Power On'- The sounds of 94 Jungle smashed to bits, thrown around a studio and taped back together for 2012."
