Review: It's been a sweet three years for New York artist Joeski outta Queens, New York, with a hot streak of music making its way to labels like Dirtybird, Crosstown Rebels and Defected. Joeski returns to Pokerflat following his 2017 Lessons In Dub EP, which he continues here via the dub techno tipped "Drift Within". A super stripped-back and minimal vocal track to offset the alien frequencies and deep vibes of bassline hit "Wordplay", popping with percussion, skatty vocals to boot, and techy house rhythms.
Let The Drum Speak! (feat Rachel) - (7:34) 126 BPM
Expressions In Dub Love - (6:51) 125 BPM
As We Dance - (8:33) 123 BPM
Review: Legend of the New York City dance music scene Joeski is back on Damian Lazarus' Rebellion, with yet more typically rhythm heavy tech house work outs on this fittingly titled new EP. He explains how he and vocalist Rachel shared a clear vision of creating a track to personify the sound of the drum, experimenting in the studio until they achieved the eerie vibe they wanted. "Let The Drum Speak!" is an evocative and mesmerising cut that utilises sublime syncopation in various layers, and processed with incredible dub delay effects and splashes of white noise for dramatic effect. Prepare to reach near tribal moments on this one! This is supported by additional cuts such as the moody and ultra deep "As We Dance" and the darkly bass-driven "Expressions In Dub Love" which is perfect for the afterhours.
Review: New York house music veteran Joeski has come back with a vengeance and has been electrifying dancefloors with his direct and no nonsense approach. It has earned him some acclaimed remixes of late on the likes of top labels such as Knee Deep In Sound, Hot Creations and Poker Flat. His new release comes courtesy of west coast bass-house institution Dirtybird - and let's just say that the man definitely had the right credentials to get onboard with this lot. Just wait for that rolling main-room boompty bass that rocks the place - after the massive drop of course on "The Sound Like This". Taking it into deeper and hypnotic territory for the late night is Tha Rmx.
