Few producers have as much to live up to after their first release as Joy Orbison: no tune since, and not many in the recent past before it, has been the bona fide phenomenon that his debut "Hyph Mngo" was in 2009. But excitement still bubbles up whenever Joy O drops a new side, either solo or with kindred spirit Boddika but he certainly doesn't sound like he's chasing past glory on recent hits like "Ellipsis" and "Swims." If anything, he's taken an admirably laidback approach, nurturing a sound that nods increasingly to his early influences with a sprinkling of the nervy now-ness that defined his first hit.
We welcome the master. One of the biggest names in the German electronic music scene. Active since the early 1990's, Flugel is a chameleon visiting many styles from ambient/idm to house, techno, electro and leftfield.
