Release info:

Stepping out of the shadows in 2007 when just sixteen years old, Joker’s stock has risen dramatically since. · Aided by him releasing defining cuts like ‘Digidesign’, ‘The Vision (Let Me Breathe)’ and ‘Tron’, he now finds himself thick in midst of the recent resurgence of British electronic music.

With the world travelled and a deal with 4AD signed, he’s finally ready to appease his waiting public and release his debut album, ’The Vision’. His now trademark instrumentals have been augmented by a number of vocal collaborations, including contributions from fellow rising stars like Jessie Ware and Buggsy, making the album one that’s been worth the wait.

Prior to this, two new tracks 'Here Come The Lights' and ‘My Trance Girl’, are being released as a double A-side 12”.

Following on from the Radio 1 and 1Xtra playlisting ‘The Vision (Let Me Breathe)’, both stations gave 'Here Come The Lights' its first play, firstly in the coveted Hottest Record In The World spot on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show, which was quickly followed by MistaJam spinning it on their sister station. It highlights the young producer’s maturing sound, continuing to playfully subvert pop conventions.

The track also features a bombastic and memorable vocal performance from Silas from Turboweekend. On the flip, 'My Trance Girl' is a futuristic six-minute instrumental, more in line with what first hooked Joker fans; its muscular vintage- Sega aping synths and sharp drum snaps a nod to his roots in Bristol's fecund dance music scene.
