ORBISON, Joy - J Doe

ORBISON, Joy - J Doe (Doldrums) Comentários:How do you follow-up the biggest 12" of the year and the kind of mass adulation not usually associated with UK bass music? Easy, make another one. This, at least, seems to be the strategy employed by Peter O'Grady, aka Joy Orbison, who lifts the lid on his very own doldrums label with another precisely built low-end double whammy likely to set the world alight all over again. "BRKLN CLLN" sits on the a-side and slowly digests and chews up a vocal sample with the same kind of alchemical brilliance that made "Hyph Mngo" so unforgettable. But this is an altogether more complex and brooding number, constructed out of hazy synth breakdowns and a scattered percussive spine that's swallowed by that frayed yet crisp production that's set to become Orbison's unique stylistic signature. It's one of those classic wrong-footiing beasts, sounding too slow and then too fast, uplifting yet morose - and at all times just utterly brilliant. "J. Doe" on the flipside is brighter and more uptempo, knocking more unfathomably righteous synths and heavyweight bass movements into a magnificently arranged dancefloor destroyer you'll no doubt be hearing endlessly for the next 12 months. Honestly, we were worried we'd be let down, but as far as we're concerned it's now sealed - the boy can do no wrong. KILLER! in boomkat [Para Ouvir/Samples]
