Premiere: JOY - Stone (Zuri Akoko Remix)
Two of Australia's bright young things make for some sweet, sweet sounds.
Brisbane producer JOY has had a bloody bonza 2014, releasing some killer original tunes, absolutely slaying Peking Duk's Like A Version, recording THIS beautiful live recording, and just this week being named as part of inthemix's 21 Locals set to own 2015. We've been all about her since we first came across her, so when the opportunity came up to premiere this dope remix of Stone from another emerging producer in Zuri Akoko we of course jumped at the chance. Akoko's productions combine a dreamy blend of atmospheric pads and vocals, often taking turns into glitchy trip hop and downtempo, experimental beats. For proof check out her own original tune We Can from earlier this year, and of course this excellent re-do of Stone. The production is gentle, yet punchy, with a breakdown that effortlessly pulls the rug out from under your feet, and already has us digging through Akoko's back catalogue for more gold. It's exciting when young talents come together:
