Mix of the Day: Joeski
Joeski, also known as Joe Flores, was born in Brooklyn and raised in Queens a true New Yorker who grew up in and around the legendary New York house scene of the 90s. Joeski himself is woven into the narrative of that period, having been a founding member of the Chocolate Factory and performing at the Limelight and Tunnel, before his career went fully international. His recording career followed suit a long list of seminal EPs stretch back to 2000.
He brings his considerable talents to Poker Flat Recordings, dropping the Lessons in Dub EP. Lead track ‘Dub Music’ is a throbbing example of the power of groove and dynamics. The rhythm is pure tough and funky New York house while the expert use of reverb, echo and delay give the track its dubwise flavour. Jamaican dub reggae production techniques have always been a key ingredient of dance music. The use of space and texture was essential to house music’s development and ‘What is Dub Love’ further illustrates Joeski’s mastery of the form. The track rides a tight rhythm track, adding percussion and spacey sound effects through its stripped down groove.
