Joy Orbison - still slipping vol. 1 LP
Few contemporary artists have had as big an impact on global dance music as Joy Orbison. Whether through his own game-changing releases such as his breakthrough hit “Hyph Mongo”, his own GTA radio station “Still Slipping Los Santos” or 2019’s Slipping EP, collaborations with the likes of Mansur Brown, Overmono and cutting edge Japanese clothing label Cav Empt, a BBC Radio 1 residency and live appearances that span the most credible underground nights to festival headline slots around the world, the name Joy Orbison has been a constant byword for understated, uncompromising quality.
Defying categorisation at every stage of his career, Joy Orbison is more relevant and in-demand than ever. This year he teams up with XL Recordings to release his highly anticipated debut long-form project: a fourteen track mixtape titled still slipping vol. 1. A deeply personal project featuring close family members alongside a roll call of perfectly curated musical collaborators, it’s Joy Orbison’s most ambitious project to date and is set to be one of 2021’s defining releases.
