Joedan has long been an unsung hero of UKG’s underground, garnering support and respect from many of the scene’s finest and foremost.
‘Forget the Girl’ is Joedan’s latest E.P. offering, making slick use of the oft-remixed Tony Terry vocal of the same name. The ‘Tunnel Mix’ is the EP’s first cut, combining a growling speed garage bass, a thudding four-to-the-floor kick, and the aforementioned vox to delectably sinister effect. Joedan seems to have thoroughly refined the art of making broody club bangers, and this introductory track is no different.
On the flip side Skillz pulls out his producer chops to craft an entry similar in vibe, but on more of a deep and jackin’ house tilt, teasing out some rave flavors with piano riffs, tight hats, and claps, and a crunchy, descending bass motif.
Forget the Girl is a welcome addition to a reemerging UK underground club scene. Expect dark, sulky rave energy alongside a healthy zesting of house and garage drums.
