The brainchild of instrument builder and sound alchemist Jay Crocker – joined by multi-disciplinary artist Shawn Dicey – JOYFULTALK is a junked-analog duo operating from a secluded outpost on Nova Scotia’s mystical South Shore. We were introduced to the critically acclaimed duo last year with the arrival of their utterly transcendent – and Constellation full-length debut – trance-like odyssey of masterfully sculpted analogue soundscapes, ‘Plurality Trip’.

Following its release they’ve been performing across North America and Europe to strong acclaim. Their touring action continues this spring with an appearance at MUTEK SF in May, and leading up to that show we’ll be sharing GIGA)PUDDY, a special 39-minute instrumental DJ mix of original material from JOYFULTALK’s Jay Crocker.

“GIGA)PUDDY is a collection of solo improvisations. It is a playful documentation of the soft transition from darkness to light when winter lets go and spring melts the ice and softens the ground. It is an interpretation of this fundamental change through the lens of immediacy, the evolution of palette in context with an exploration of process. NO MISTAKES. NO WRONG TURNS. NO TURNING BACK FROM THE LIGHT.”

—Jay Crocker

“You Grow Closer” features: the Albuquerque, New Mexico-based independent music treasures A Hawk And A Hacksaw (Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost), who released their latest album “Forest Bathing” earlier this year via LM-Dupli-cation. Like every record made (or influenced) by the hands of Barnes and Trost, the results are nothing short of astounding. Also featuring other 2018 gems including: peerless songwriter Marissa Nadler’s majestic “For My Crimes” (due for release this Autumn via Bella Union & Sacred Bones); world-renowned UK cellist Oliver Coates’s scintillating “Shelley’s On Zenn-La” full-length, his first for RVNG Intl which is scheduled for release on 7th September; Laurel Halo’s “Raw Silk Uncut Wood” (Latency); Helena Hauff’s “Qualm” (Ninja Tune); Steve Hauschildt’s “Dissolvi” (Ghostly International).
