The New Dawn Will Come

Some new music for Sunday, downtempo, blissed out and chasing the Balearic beat. Joe Morris is a Leeds based DJ and producer who has created two new tracks quickly during the lockdown and they are a perfect sounding pair, bass and drums padding away and some lovely optimistic piano.

Dan Wainwright is on a creative roll, producing one new thing after another. Peace Of Mind is a slowed down, cosmic, synth voyage, like sunshine coming through the trees, a feeling of contentment and the knowledge that whatever comes tomorrow can be dealt with.

Get High is more direct and built for dancing, wonky, off kilter new beat.

A Dance With Jupiter

More kaleidoscopic, electronic Balearic action today, brand new and from the most unBalearic environs of Leeds. Exotic Language is the first full length album from DJ and producer Joe Morris (who put out an e.p. last year called Jacaranda Skies that I really enjoyed), nine tracks taking in chilled out soundscapes, waves lapping on beaches, quality dub, spaced out excursions, Italo house and bass-led Chicago dancers. There’s so much in here to enjoy, from the slower paced, relaxed stuff to the faster floorfillers- it’s even managing to combat the particularly wet weather we’re getting currently. A month’s rain in a day forecast for today. The weekend looks fairly grim too. Summer seems to have stalled. Float away with Joe.

Jacaranda Skies

Sorry for the break in transmission yesterday. It was Richard Branson’s fault. The buck goes all the way to the top.

Yes it’s late January and yes the weather is still a bit shitty but we can console ourselves with the thought that it is getting lighter for longer, slowly but surely, day by day. This new release from Leeds-based producer Joe Morris is Balearic through and through, the sound of beaches, sunsets and pine trees. Four tracks, none in any hurry to get anywhere but too busy to be ambient. Here’s two of them.
