It seems an age ago now that Joker exploded onto the scene with a series of attention grabbing releases such as ‘Purple City’ and ‘Snake Eater’. A born performer who is just as comfortable behind the decks as in the studio we were slightly disappointed with his debut album back in 2011 but were pleased to see him back to his best this year with the release of April’s ‘The Face Off’ EP which saw the Bristolian revert to type.
Now Joker has unveiled a new more playful venture with the announcement of a new free mini-album of new 8 bit enthused material entitled Joker Drive. Inspired by the retro sounds of Sega’s cartridge laden heyday the album naturally delivers plenty of nostalgia inducing upbeat electro with just enough of a hint of bass to retain a sporadically introduced dubstep edge.
