Straight up no-messing techno that hooks us in and transports us to the Amnesia dance floor where we wait for the bass to kick and the CO2 blasts to take our heads off!” Those are the words of Richie Hawtin. He’s talking about one of techno’s most engaging new talents, Joop Junior, and of course he is a man who knows. As such it’s no surprise the Minus boss has snapped up the Dutchman when Joop was only 20, and featured him on his imprint with the New Horizons compilation, followed by his Sonus.1 EP.
Following that landmark release, Joop was featured multiple times on Dubfire’s equally influential SCI+TEC label. with his ‘itanimulli’ and ‘famous in amsterdam’ EP’s. Which the latter has been remixed by another prominent Dutch artist, Egbert.
Broadening up his repertoire, John Digweed picked up Joop by featuring a more alternative ambient cut, named ‘Sofie_Lucie’ on his ‘Re:structured’ compilation album on Bedrock.
The reason? Joop Junior’s music is all carefully sculpted from scratch. With every texture, drumhit, vocal line, and groove, being synthesized, recorded, and produced by the Hague man himself. Assuring his musical and sonic ideas are translated in the most personal way possible.
In the club Joop Junior deals exclusive in live shows, they help him transmit his message only a live performance could do. Frequently playing at at esteemed places like Crobar Buenos Aires, Output NYC, Arkham Shanghai, Showcase Paris, and let’s not forget festivals like Awakenings, Time Warp, Love Family Park and Metropolis plus many other cities around the globe.
Now he is here, he has even more to say and an ever-larger audience of people who are desperate to listen in.
