INTERNATIONAL LINE-UP ANNOUNCEMENT
Over the last two years wAFF has become one of the most engaging artists on the international circuit, joining the ever popular and influential Hot Creations / Paradise family, several highly commended releases and a residency with Jamie Jones’s ‘already under his belt.
As the future offers up a whole world of opportunity, he‘s putting his all into creating music of the highest quality, built to unite and excite in equal amounts. He started out in North Yorkshire with no connection to the global night world apart from an unquenchable passion for
music. But he listened. He worked. And now he’s right in the frame.
His music has been getting the nod from Sven Väth, Adam Beyer, Loco Dice, Joseph Capriati, Marco Carola and dozens more. He’s even been asked to collaborate with Masters At Work. Not bad going. And that’s not all. Other wAFF collaborations in the works include Eats Everything, Patrick Topping, Cuartero and Argy, as well as remixes for Groove Armada (‘Final Shakedown’), Fur Coat (‘There’s No Time’), Hot Since 82 (‘Plane and Trains’), and Mike Gill featuring Robert Owens (‘In The Midst’).
For an electronic music culture increasingly bloated, glitzy, and insufferable, the British duo Paranoid London is a refreshing punch to the nuts. They emulate the shoddy, shady days of early Chicago house: The mad whinnying squeals, the 303s, the deadpan vocals—all of it is here, and it hits with visceral force.
The tracks that Delgado and Whalley craft are simple as a prison shiv, not adding layers of gloss or paint to its acid-house, but stripping it back to its basics. Almost every track is erected from the same blocks: handclaps bright as tin foil, dry snares, sharp hi-hats, concussive kicks, all of it buoyed by queasy undulations of bass. They emulate Trax and those shoddy, shady days of Chicago pressings to the point that you expect a chunk of rubber to be embedded in the records themselves.

JoeSki was born in Brooklyn NY, and raised in a highly diversified and urban neighborhood in Corona, Queens. Growing up a short ride away from the New York City Underground House scene. In 1991, JoeSki was booked to play at NYC Wunder Bar. Located in the heart of a crowded Manhattan, where tall buildings lined the street, and hundreds of people waited outside of the front of the club, where promoters used thick velvet ropes, guest lists and bouncers to control the crowd of people waiting to get picked to come inside for the night. The demand to get into a top pumping house club then was insatiable.
Over the next few years JoeSki began to build a career domestically, and became one of the founders of “The Chocolate Factory”. His career expanded throughout NYC historical clubs such as “The Limelight”, Tunnel, Palladium & NASA. JoeSki then hooked up with DJ Keoki, where they played together at the infamous East Village after-hours club “Save the Robots”.
