After a string of collaborative singles with Overmono, today Joy Orbison returns in solo mode with the futuristic, bouncy ear candy of 2M3 2U. Packing plenty of bass heavy LFO action (AKA “fat wubs”) alongside a 4/4 kick drum, 2M3 2U features all manner of pitched up vocal samples and cosmic synths floating above the mix.

I see this one as a bit of a UK take on hyperpop,” says Joy. “But with a bit of bass weight. the vocal part could be a sample of some garbled message of love in Bladerunner or the Fifth Element, and the main riffs had me thinking about the DJ Narrows records we'd play at youth club parties. Interesting top lines seem to be a bit absent in my world these days and I've definitely been influenced by contemporary drum & bass and their endless search for the catchiest wobble.
