Joy Orbison – Dekmantel’s ‘SELECTORS 004’
Joy Orbison installment of Dekmantel’s Selectors series, on ‘Selectors 004’ the London artist delved deep into UK dance music history, that O’Grady’s clearly spent many years, as a DJ and record collector, getting to know.
The compilation purposefully reflects his UK heritage, pulling tracks exclusively from British artists, several of whom are lesser-known.
Selectors 004 includes more familiar UK dance music touchstones. Artwork, AKA Arthur Smith, surfaces here under his Santos Rodriguez alias—most, of course, will know him better as one-third of dubstep group Magnetic Man, or via his association with the dubstep institution Big Apple Records.
Spread over four sides of vinyl the collection takes in tracks new and old, with sought-after breakbeat, ‘90s drum and bass, bass and techno music from the likes Source Direct, R Solution and L.E. Bass. More contemporary tracks come from Beatrice Dillon and Klein.
Joy Orbison joins us on Saturday 24th of February!
