I'm gonna make a thread about the badman Joker. He is a young producer from Bristol making some kind of mad grime meets Timberland hangin with Dr. Dre meets dubstep meets chip tune meets a sound of his own, his synths sing like future soul singers. The guy is wicked and at such a young age already has a label of his own called Kapsize, which has dropped tracks from himself plus massive respected underground names like Glasgows Rustie who makes some sort of deranged aquacrunk hiphop beat music and Ginz aka 30Hrz the new skool breaks legends from the USA.
Not only that though he's dropped records on the massively respected label Hyperdub ran by Kode 9 the same label that has released all of Burial's stuff up until now and the label ran by Plastician one of the scenes true inovators and mainstays, who has been DJing for so long from the first glimspes of dubstep and grime. Even Pinch has picked him up for a track on Tectonic and he knows his shit.
Joker has dropped 3 12" so far on kapsize and each is just gettin better and better the last one Do It and Purple City even got radio one play from people like Zane Low! Thats how big his cross over apeal is. This new 12" comeing up is a collaberation with Ginz, Purple City and Re-Up (for all you wire fans) and its fucked up.
He's got an album full of vocals of his beats on the way plus a fully original album in the works, he is one to watch thats for sure.
Grime heads love him and count him as one of their own, as do dubstep heads. He DJs all over the world yet only people within the scene in the UK have much of a clue about him.
Listen, buy, go see.
