Hit the jump for full info on J0T5 and it’s accompany J0T5 RMXD EP, out the following week (1/24). For more on Jokers Of The Scene, check out this great interview with The Grid, who name them “One To Watch” in Toronto for 2012…
Whether crafting epic, nine minute Salem remixes or raving out with their own anthemic tracks like “Revolting Joks” and “Baggy Bottom Boys,” Toronto duo Jokers Of The Scene have proven themselves masters of electronic music in all it’s forms. Their latest project, the J0T5 EP, may prove their most expansive yet, as DJ Booth & Chameleonic have created music perfect for home listening and strobe-lit warehouses alike.
The five tracks on J0T5 pulsate through ambient synth excursions, vintage sci-fi soundtracks, and experimental techno, somehow managing to connect the dots along the way. Equally diverse is the accompanying J0T5 RMXD EP, out the following week. Here, the duo’s peers and contemporaries like Daniel Avery (aka Stopmakingme), Shadow Dancer (BNR), Hrdvsion (Wagon Repair), Savile & Olin, Cosmic Kids (Throne Of Blood), Gingy & Bordello (Turbo) and Babe Rainbow (Warp) each take turns driving the Jokers’ new material into new and unexpected directions.
Already supported by DJs from Andrew Weatherall to Mixhell, these two EPs are an auspicious start to the year in dance music. Check Jokers Of The Scene celebrating January 20th at Wrongbar in Toronto and January 26th at Monarch in San Francisco, with additional dates to follow all winter.
