Out today on JOOF Aura new boys Craig Townsend & Jay Hubbard bring you the superb ‘Humanities Dictation’.
Craig Townsend and Jay Hubbard are two trailblazers among the progressive scene. Inside Humanities Dictation, Craig and Jay valiantly explore the exceedingly alluring, animating, and balletic spectrum of progressive. A light, yet captivating pluck breaks ground throughout this track, stylishly wrapped around a hypnotic groove that shifts the dancefloor into a sea of smiles.
Psy duo Pura Vida Vs Effective grace JOOF Mantra this week with their masterful EP ‘Warrior’s Calling’.
Pura Vida Vs Effective, masterminds in funky, festival psy-trance come together to bring you ‘Warrior’s Calling’ and ‘India 911’. This release hits hard, with a crazed drop, moving melodies, and intense tribal chants, knitted together by immense, festival-driven triplets. Within the over-saturated realm of bassline orientated psy-trance, Warrior’s Calling stands out as unique, credible, and sincere while also wonderfully maintaining that high-level of fun and liveliness.
Monojoke is a name that has become synonymous with high-quality progressive, and ‘Hollow Child’ greatly exceeds the quality threshold that we set here at JOOF Aura. Inside ‘Hollow Child’, you’ll find an evanescent atmosphere, gorgeous percussive stabs, and a deep-seated groove that will entrance tribes on the dancefloor.
We felt the time is perfect to reignite our JOOF DJ sessions mix series, this being at a time when there’s a resurgence in the more specialist side of the scene. These mix complications are a perfect platform to showcase some of the best in the new generation of talent that are gracing clubs around the world. We turn to Toronto for our next session to a guy who has become a local hero as well as being one of the most forward thinking producers on this planet that has got the attention of the likes of Guy J and John Digweed.
Rick Pier O’Neil, a man with an immense and vast back-catalog of incredibly entrancing music, lights fire to JOOF Aura with the lavish ‘Absolom’. A luscious delight to the ears, Absolom is brush-stroked with deep-tribal grooves, menacing pads, and a dark atmosphere. Produced with pure vehemence, and topped off with a love for all things gloomy, ‘Absolom’ is best enjoyed amidst dusk.
