Joy Orbison steps up for Dekmantel’s Selectors compilation series
Joy Orbison – real name Peter O’Grady – has compiled the latest instalment in Dekmantel’s much-celebrated Selectors series.
A dizzyingly diverse affair, Selectors 004 incorporates a host of old and new tracks into the equation, with everything from ‘90s drum & bass to techno to breakbeat all featuring. Each track on the release is produced by a British producer, with Klein, L.E. Bass, JP Buckle and Beatrice Dillon among those who’ve got the nod here.
“Soundsystem culture is a thread that runs through almost everything here. It’s had a huge effect on me, sometimes without me even knowing it,” he acknowledged. “The UK at its best is a celebration of diverse cultures intertwining and creating beautiful results. Hopefully this collection of music can document a piece of that. Now more than ever, it seems important to acknowledge and celebrate this.”
