First Spin: Joy Orbison

It’s been a while since the last official release from Joy Orbison. Since 2012 he only releases a bunch of singles and split tracks with his colleague Boddika. One of the best tracks comes from the Rush Hour Music compilation back in 2015. “A213” is IDM club music at it’s best.

It reminds me a little bit to the club oriented releases from Four Tet’s “Percussions” side project. By now Joy Orbision aka Peter O’Grady set to release two new efforts via his Bandcamp page. The two track single “Off Season / Fuerza” and the EP “Toss Portal”. “Toss Portal” is a sticky four track UK techno experiment. Here are some words from boomkat: “The reticulated funk of Rid cuts loose with a proper feminine pressure that recalls his earliest work, while the grumbling, cranky Walworth Window morphs with a more messed-up, kinkier appeal of his own, and Rite Ov even introduces a lilting reggae vocal, Main Street or Rhythm & Sound style, on a sloshing steppers groove.”

Rating: 3 out of 5.
