Joakuim joins brand new label Huski Reocrds
Hailing from the capital of France is brand new drum and bass label Huski Records, one which will be propelling the finest French talents straight into the heart of the scene. Forthcoming on the imprint is a release which will gain enough momentum to send shockwaves across the drum & bass world and it’s one being brought to you by label head Seereal. Defining the strength of the label and taking the task of its first release is Joakuim with his ‘Le Clebs’ EP. He has been carefully selected by Seereal to present the face of Huski Records to the world.
Over the last 8 years, Joakuim has been drilling himself into the genre’s core through his mellifluous production styles, the type of which have ensured he’s been held in high regard. The reason for this reputation can be heard on labels such as 31Recordings, Symmetry Records, Fokuz Recordings and plenty more. With two fresh cuts and one remix from UK Bristol’s own Ill Truth, get ready for the ground to shake with ‘Le Clebs’.
Taking the lead on the EP is Ill Truth with their rework of title-track ‘Le Clebs’, a track which has already been premiered by Calyx & TeeBee on the BBC Radio1 René LaVice show. The soft opening of the track is a prelude for what’s to come and as the track builds the listener is soon met with the sprinkles of Ill Truths’ signature bassline, giving a much bolder feel to the sounds of Joakuim.
Next up is the original, giving us the true essence of Joakuim. It shows a more fluid aura, a style which is widely recognised as a signature for Joakuim; a track which is ready to send its listeners into a trance on the dancefloor.
The final track is our premiere, ‘Electronica’ which is quick to set the tone with its electrifying soundboard. Alongside its Jungle style drums and met with rippling metallic stabs, its craftsmanship will cause hypnotic vibrations, especially across global dancefloors.
The forthcoming EP from Joakuim, with help from Ill Truth, shows the natural force they both hold and why they’ve been honoured to showcase Huski Records. With a forthcoming release as strong as this, it makes a statement – there is so much more to come. In our opinion, it’s a label definitely worth keeping an eye on!
