A born and bred Bristol lad, Joker is quickly moving to the forefront of the UK Dubstep scene. First coming onto the scene in 2007, he’s established himself as one of the brightest UK talents around. His place on the lineup at the upcoming UKFBassCulture Concert at Alexandra Palace, accompanying some of the biggest names in Dubstep in the Union Arena, is totally deserved. Having the single “Here Come the Lights” featuring Silas Bjerregaard lauded by Zane Lowe as his ‘Hottest Record in the World’ in the 27th July 2011, showed the mainstream how highly regarded Joker is. This latest release from the 4AD label titled “Here Come the Lights” features the title-track alongside the single ‘Trance Girl’.
Here Come the Lights – A more mainstream venture from Joker (and Silas) but it works very well. There’s no rough bass wobbles or mad synth’s on this track, only a very melodic almost subtle sound to this track. Silas’s vocals add to a track that was rightly praised.
Trance Girl – An edgier track than the last, it opens very smoothly and flows into a track that should be the soundtrack to any cool Sci-Fi villain. The bass hints to something darker whilst the synth use just reinforces the cool sound this track has running through it.
