Guy J Returns
Releasing his debut album on John Digweed and Nick Muir's longstanding and much-respected label Bedrock, Guy J's music sits comfortably alongside labelmates such as Nic Fanciulli, Luke Fair, and plenty of other legends, with its idiosyncratic and inventive take on sounds pulled from house, techno, ambient and beyond.
His debut album Esperanza was released in 2008 to almost-universal acclaim, and it seems fair to say that the Israeli producer is at the forefront of the country's burgeoning dance music scene, drawing praise for his tight, driving beats, shimmering, warm synths and expansive arrangements. This year's already off to a killer start, with releases featuring on a recent John Digweed compilation, as well as on Cocoon and Tiga's own Turbo Records - a real testament to his adaptable and wide-ranging sounds.
Wowing Australians last time he was down, he'll be back in June for a string of dates across the country - Guy J plays Melbourne on Friday June 8 at a yet to be confirmed venue.
