Shrew Would Have Cushioned the Blow on 12" Single

2020 repress. Joy Orbison has been celebrated for finding a sound that marries elements of house, two-step, jungle, techno, and dubstep. Alongside the release of the gargantuan "Hyph Mngo" (released on Hot Flush in late 2009) and material on his own imprint Doldrums, notorious mixes for Radio 1 have only served to cement Joy Orbison's renown. Both "The Shrew" and "So Derobe" pick up where "Hyph Mngo" blasted off... devilishly catchy melodies and basslines, full of feeling and soul, evolve and grow as the arrangement develops to leave you on an almighty high. Big drops, super heavy drum programming and grooves that sound like only Joy Orbison right now. There's shades of garage, shades of funky, shades of old school R&B.; Pete wears his influences on his sleeve yet re-wraps them in his own unmistakable and truly unique style. Actress's "Neu Haus" refix is the perfect foil for this package. A raw, almost unconstructed tool that in the right hands will create huge tension on the floor. Actress, aka Darren J. Cunningham, has set himself apart as one of the hottest A&R; scouts within his field, having discovered and released some of the most widely talked about artists of the emerging bass generation, namely Disrupt, Zomby, Lukid, and Starkey. As actress he produced the exceptional Hazyville LP (2008) drawing cries for a Mercury Award Nomination. He's remixed the too cool for school Various Production, written for the seminal techno imprint Soma, and has released on British Independent record label Honest Jon's.
