Joe Morris – Horizons EP
1. Over My Head
3. Sky Drops
Joe Morris has been earning his stripes as a DJ for over 20 years and more recently as a producer with releases on 3am, Nang, EDSRC and Baker Street. He is also promoter of the Leeds based Clandestino parties that burn a hole in the Northern underground. Joe can be found party starting behind the decks at places like the Electric Elephant and all over the UK and Europe.
Over My Head kicks things off and is main room deep house with plenty of soul. Wrapped around an analogue bass riff and synth stabs, it’s techy drums keep building to a vocal sample that gives it that all-important feeling. The track twists and turns with builds and drops for aces high dancefloor dynamics.
Next up, Zazous takes up Joe’s trademark Balearic signature sound with warm pads, drums and a touch of old school. Synth strings, washes, arps and stabs let the track ebb and flow like the Med lapping at your feet with a sundowner in your hand!
Sky Drops slows things down a notch but keeps it Balearic. Again taking it’s influence from the golden era of house, it’s the sound of Ibiza in the 90s when optimism and smiling faces were all that counted. Lush chords, strings and pianos immerse you in a world where all is good and pulsing to a house beat.
