You probably know Joe for his idiosyncratic, floor-filling productions for Hessle Audio and Hemlock Recordings. Tunes like “Slope,” “Claptrap,” “Punters step out” and this year’s track-of-the-year contender “Tail Lift” have become trusty weapons for some of the world’s biggest (and most adventurous) DJs. The artist behind these creations has kept a resolutely low profile these past few years, but if you listen carefully to his productions, you’ll get a sense for Joe the DJ. His sets speak to years spent picking through rare groove, soul, funk, techno, disco, garage and jazz, soaking up Theo Parrish’s sets at Plastic People and absorbing London’s soundsystem culture. You’ll hear gems that traverse eras and genres, tied together not by a single sound but by a shared sensibility—one that’s serious yet playful, rough yet soulful, intricate yet functional. Joe laid out this style in a recent selection for Truants, a standout mix that signalled the return of one of dance music’s quiet achievers.

After an intrepid new phase in the label’s history - initiated by the “Solidarity Forever” series and followed by releases from Katerina, Mujaji The Rain, Gladkazuka and also Matias Aguayo’s “Support Alien Invasion” (w/ “Crammed Discs”) - Cómeme is happy to announce a new release by a wonderful and unique artist, who chooses to walk adventurous paths beyond nowadays musical normativity, and media spectacle: JOE. (You might already be acquainted with his releases on the ever-exciting “Hessle Audio” label)

On his first EP on Cómeme, JOE invites us to “Get Centred” via fresh sounds, perfect beats, and unusual time signatures – difficult to play, and easy to dance!
