Joy O – ‘Wade In’ (radio rip)

Joy Orbison returns to Hotflush, the label responsible for issuing his world-conquering ‘Hyph Mngo’, for a new single out March 21.

The London-based producer has slimmed down his moniker to Joy O for the new 12″, a two-track affair comprising  ‘Wade In’ and ‘Jells’. You may recall that ‘Ladywell’/'BB’, released through his own Doldrums imprint last year, was credited simply to J.O., suggesting that the full Joy Orbison handle is being phased out.

‘Wade In’ continues Joy’s exploration of a swinging, garage-flecked house sound, this time replete with stinging acid lines and feelgood piano vamps. On the B-side ‘Jels’ has a Motor City techno feel, with crisp percussion and warm pads that nod to the work of his beloved Omar-S.

You can preview ‘Wade In’ in the radio rip streaming above.
