Joy Orbison RA.331

LEAVE IT TO Resident Advisor to track down a reclusive artist who shies away from the of press to contribute one of the most memorable mixes of the year. Joy Orbison, an artist who has always been close to jazner and was one of the first who opened him up to a whole new world of styles with his quintessential game changer “Hyph Mngo“, dropped RA.331 and it’s fucking tight.

Sure, starting off with Jeremih “Fuck U All The Time” just about guarantees instant infatuation from jazner, but there are two selections in particular from the mix that needed to be cherry picked and put on full display.

The first is a Joy O edit of Donell Jones “U Know What’s Up”, coming in around the 15′ mark of the mix. Mixing R&B vocals with a 2-step / garage beat is a classic recipe for success, at least one that will get jazner‘s ears to perk up. Makes you wonder how many of these edits Joy O is sitting on.

The second is a more downtempo jam, coming in around 2′ as the second track of the mix behind Jeremih – Damage “Love Lady (Groove Chronicles Remix)”. A groove made for the late night love zone, its swinging rhythm and vocals dripping with sensuality  guiding all riders to the bedroom for a night cap. A great track to build momentum for the rest of the mix, this one can easily stand on its own as a groove to find on wax.

Download the whole mix over at Resident Advisor, you will not be disappointed.
