Jels (Radio Rip)
There are still 19 days left until the release of Joy O’s next single on Hotflush, and we believe the wait will be hard, almost cruel. Even more so now that, after blinding our eyes with “Wade In” (the track actually shines), we can hear the B-side, “Jels”, (almost) entirely. Combining very dark technoid sequences with crystalline harmonies and terse vocal fragments with a robust 909 rhythm that sounds sharper than ever, the Croydon master kills it once again with an otherworldly track. Simple and devastating.
