Thanks to Richie for sharing this with me. Joker is a 20-year-old kid from Bristol making some insane bass-heavy music that makes me want to go see a live show and destroy my eardrums while standing on the subwoofer, with my ear pressed against the speaker. Yes! Who is this kid? Here’s an old article about him.
MissRuckus (aka: Grandma) to Richie: “You know what would be hilarious? Me going to a dubstep show and being surrounded by all these 20-year-old boys.”
Be nice to the elderly lady with the cane if you see her next to a speaker. Thanks!
I love this track and want to hug a subwoofer:
This one’s on Hyperdub so I know urbansteve approves:
You can download a DJ mix by Joker called Purple Wow Sound here.
