Joe’s releases are few and far between but are always met with as much positive conviction as the last. Perhaps with the recent news of his commitment to music as a full time career- we can expect a steadier stream of tunes from Hessle audio’s ‘secret weapon’.
‘Maximum Busy Muscle’ from the B side of Joes Slope EP is another brilliant representation of Joe’s sampler production aesthetics. The relationship between acoustic samples and digitally processed sound work seamlessly together throughout this percussion filled tune. The industrial sample layered kick alone is enough to make this tune peak time material. Pitch lowered vocal samples also add a darkness and energy which is developed into a groove with bright offbeat ride samples.
