Friday 18th November
Joy Orbison burst on to the scene in 2009 with 'Hyph Mngo' through Hotflush Recordings, a single that was notable for its ubiquity (it was voted RA's #1 track of that year) and striking singularity. Something almost immediately felt different about this artist—a belief that only deepened by what came after: No rushed sound-alike follow-up to 'Hyph Mngo', no online mixes. Barely any press presence.
The Joy Orbison discography has developed at very much its own pace, with no 12-inches sounding quite the same—from the sputtering, sun-drenched garage of 'J. Doe' to the woody, rolling house textures of 'Wade In', Joy O is an enigmatic, elusive artist, and represents a stong statement of intent for us here at Hold It Down HQ
