Stepping out of the shadows in 2007 when just sixteen years old, Joker's stock has risen dramatically since. Aided by him releasing defining cuts like 'Digidesign', 'The Vision (Let Me Breathe)' and 'Tron', he now finds himself thick in the recent resurgence of British electronic music.
With the world travelled and a deal with 4AD signed, he's finally ready to appease his waiting public and release his debut album, The Vision. To be released on November 8th, his now trademark instrumentals have been augmented by a number of vocal collaborations, including contributions from fellow rising stars like Jessie Ware and Buggsy, making the album one that's been worth the wait.
Prior to this, new tracks "Here Come The Lights" and "My Trance Girl." are being released on a double A-side 12" and via download on September 27th. It highlights the young producer's maturing sound, continuing to playfully subvert pop conventions. "Here Come The Lights" features a bombastic and memorable vocal performance from Silas from Turboweekend. You can hear it here now . On the flip, "My Trance Girl" is a futuristic six-minute instrumental, more in line with what first hooked Joker fans; its muscular vintage-Sega aping synths and sharp drum snaps a nod to his roots in Bristol's fecund dance music scene.
