Having watched Joker completely level an NYC rave a few weeks ago by DJing his own genius tracks almost exclusively, we are quite certain this dude, at 20, is a musical prodigy. He's like the Berklee College of Music (early entrance) of dubstep producers. Or sorry, not dubstep, purple. Or whatever. It's all sub-bass to us, call it what you want, we'll love it no matter its name. Primary 1 & Riton make sort of weird music when they collaborate (that dude's voice is confusing/maybe it's just a Brit thing?) but thus far all remixes of their work have been exceptional, and of course Joker's is ridonkulous, melodic, funky, heavy, intricate, graceful and legitimately dubwise, qualities which set him apart from most of his peers. For some reason Dam-Funk keeps coming to mind. We need them to collaborate immediately. Actually we're gonna email them about that right now. This song is blowing our brainpans.
