“Straight up no-messing techno that hooks us in and transports us to the Amnesia dance floor where we wait for the bass to kick and the CO2 blasts to take our heads off!” Those are the words of Richie Hawtin. He’s talking about one of techno’s most engaging new talents, Joop Junior, and of course he is a man who knows. As such it’s no surprise the Minus boss has snapped up the Dutchman when Joop was only 20, and featured him on his imprint with the New Horizons compilation, followed by his Sonus.1 EP. Joop Junior’s music is all carefully sculpted from scratch. With every texture, drumhit, vocal line, and groove, being synthesized, recorded, and produced by the Hague man himself. Assuring his musical and sonic ideas are translated in the most personal way possible.
