Nightsteppaz’ Vibe Me To The Moon imprint continues its release schedule in June with a two-track offering from Joeski, following the success of Roland Clark’s Dance Or Die EP last month.
Joeski’s career began in 1991, as a founding member of The Chocolate Factory DJ collective when he emerged onto the NYC house scene. Since then, the American veteran has built a global audience courtesy of his Maya label, which he founded in 2001, as well as his sharp ear for production, which has seen him release on Crosstown Rebels, Relief, and a slew of other heavyweight labels in the recent years.
Rude Boy / Stick Up! is the label’s first release from the American legend, and it’s a watershed moment for the fledgling musical enterprise. The EP opens up with ‘Rude Boy’, kicking things off with classic instrumentals and a strong bassline. We’re transported to far-flung realms thanks to shimmering vocal tones until Stick Up! draws everything to a close, with salsa-like components throughout. It’s a more rough piece of contemporary dance music, driven by thick kick-hat combos and the odd pulse of whirling synth tones. All in all the tracks are enjoyable and dancefloor approved.
