Joeski – I Want You EP (Crosstown Rebels)
Following on from a hectic summer touring across the globe, NY producer Joeski returns to the studio to create his next release, due on Crosstown Rebels in 2018.
“I have been listening to a lot of early Chicago Acid House lately. I’ve always loved that deep, dark sound with spoken word on Trax Records. I was inspired to get in the studio with Liberty and produce on the spoken word tip. Most of the stuff I do with her tends to be along those lines..DEEP AND SEXY HOUSE AND TECHNO MUSIC” Joeski
The EP unfolds with the original version of I Want You – a fierce, driving beat is juxtaposed alongside the sensual and smouldering vocal as the bassline rumbles on. Pure 4am, fist pumping pleasure. The flip side introduces the disco mix of the title track. But don’t let the ‘disco’ lull you into a false sense of security. The track is fuelled by intense industrial sounding smashes and an abundance of layers that creep ever closer.
A founding member of NYC’s The Chocolate Factory DJ Collective, Joeski has been a staple in the underground scene in New York since 1991, holding down a residency at the city’s famed nightclub- Roxy. He’s played alongside the likes of Danny Tenaglia, Louis Vega and Roger Sanchez. His career has seen him release on Electrik Soul, Siesta, Chez and Camouflage as well as launching his own imprint Maya Records in 2001. This year, the prolific producer has juggled a jam-packed touring schedule taking in Australia, New Zealand, South America and Europe, as well as Ibiza for Do Not Sleep and Misfits.
