Balance Presents Jozif
BALANCE MUSIC (AUSTRALIA)
After 22 volumes of its much-lauded double-disc compilation series, Australian imprint Balance returns to launch its new
mix series, throwing the spotlight on the emerging talents that are shaping the future of the scene. One of the most exciting names to proliferate in the world of house music and thereabouts over the last five years or so, English DJ and producer
is a unique talent. Born to a professional drummer father and a Royal Ballet ballerina mother, he grew up surrounded by music and slowly but surely worked his way into similarly focused endeavors. His highly musical take on house and downtempo 4/4 grooves as a producer is somewhat belied by his prowess as a dancefloor-driven DJ, but it's exactly this combination that makes him such an exciting proposition. Whether he's playing the big rooms of a We Love... Space residency, serving up wigged-out grooves alongside his Fist or Finger label partner
, or soundtracking a sun-drenched day party in Shoreditch, he always seems effortlessly comfortable and accomplished. Artists include:
Glimpse & Martine Dawson
"Our sixth release sees the Fondation family growing. We're welcoming a brand new name aboard, Jozif. A newcomer on the production scene, Jozif has always been around music from a very young age, thanks to his world-famous drummer dad. He has deejayed in London for several years. His trademark mesmerizing house and quirky attitude quickly got him massive attention and support from British tastemakers such as Craig Richards, Andrew Weatherall or Leftroom's Matt Tolfrey.
is his debut EP. In '82988,' bleeps and synths are running after a deviant bass, all of them taking turns in invading the dancefloor. An epic tune made of dissonant stems matching one another precisely to create a very pulsating house/techno beat, not unlike Konrad Black or Maetrik. On the flip, 'Digga Deepa' takes the hypnotic way. A grower based on a vicious and highly addictive gimmick. Think of a haunted nine-minute apnea able to take any dancefloor to unsuspected heights."
