präsentiert von Intro Magazin, Soundkartell, ByteFM und Kultmucke

Genre: Alternative Pop / Electro Pop

Joy Wellboy produzieren nicht einfach nur gewöhnlichen Electro-Pop. Das belgische Paar Joy Adegoke und Wim Janssen entwirft komplexe Klanggebilde, spielt mit experimentellen Beat-Arrangements, greift tief in den eklektischen Genre-Top zwischen R’n’B, TripHop, New-Wave und Pop und lässt so wundervolle, erfrischende Songs entstehen. Nicht ohne Grund wurde Bpitch-Chefin Ellen Allien auf Joy Wellboy aufmerksam und veröffentlichte deren Debütalbum Yorokobi’s Mantra. Nach Konzerten mit Alt-J, Morcheeba oder S O H N und einer 8-Track-EP folgte das zweite Album „Wedding“ (2015). Im Januar 2017 erscheint dann das dritte Album des Duos „Les Pieds Dans La Merde La Tête Dans Les Etoiles“.

Vittoria Fleet are electronic artists defined by relationships. Together exploring the spaces between time and place / analogue and digital / masculinity and femininity / sound and music… in their time together, this contrasting list has only grown.

The band first formed in 2009 – the combined efforts of Allan Shotter and Giada Zerbo; producing the Kissing Cousins EP as a swan song to their time spent together in Hackney Wick, London. Reflecting the organic and controlled existences that surrounded them throughout the city. This EP showcased a huge sonic arsenal, from pounding bass and drums reminiscent of the raves of East London to the most delicate vocals, atmospherics and field recordings. All used to expand the depth and dimensions of each track.

Between the release of Kissing Cousins in 2011 and now, the duo migrated to Germany, finding a home in the never-sleeping-ever-ready city of Berlin. In doing so, defining a personality that is always present in the music that they create, developing an understanding of the symbiosis needed between all things. A careful balancing act that is the nature of the music they make and the processes required in nurturing it. After two years of hibernation, the duo released Acht LP on n5MD in early 2014 then quickly regrouped to record their sophomore long player Greed LP at the end of 2015.
