About this album

The artist previously known as Joy Orbison ushers in an abbreviated name change on this killer 12” for Hotflush Recordings. Following the house-charged lead of his “Ladywell / BB” disc earlier this year, “Wade In / Jels” augments classic Chi-town and Detroit templates with a spunky fresh bin load of bass in hard-bodied style.

Face up, “Jels” drives nut-crushing kicks, industro-funky cowbells and floor-quaking infrabass under sprightly keys and persistent shuffles for that perfectly poised balance of pout and snarl, or sweet and light.

Face down, “Wade In” comes off like Kassem Mosse meets Green Velvet, downtown Chicago styles, where thunderous kicks entwine with pupil-dilating synthline in a teasing, gripping arrangement adept at rocking the biggest main rooms and sweatboxes alike.
