Joe’s greatest satisfaction as a DJ comes from linking the elements of dance music’s past – disco breaks, Chicago basslines, the funk of electro and the bittersweet touch of Italo – with the best of its vivid present, to create moments of pure pop catharsis. Agnostic about genre and evangelical about anything that moves him, Joe has established a reputation for being singularly, defiantly himself. This honest approach, cultivated through residencies at Spaced and Dust Off, has brought Joe to prime-time slots at Berghain/Panoramabar, The Pickle Factory, Closer, Renate, K4 and Dimensions Festival. He’s also a regular at queer parties, such as Adonis, Pumping Velvet, Honcho, Kiss Me Again and El Cuerpo Del Disco. Welt Discos, Joe’s label, is a platform for music that’s playfully serious and seriously playful. Alongside vinyl releases by friends and other artists he admires, the label has also become home to a series of one-off digital releases raising money for charitable organisations.
