Joker - Skitta / I Think You Should Know [EP]

Joker returns and deservedly retains his crown as the king of the purple sound. His standard thick, Sega-influenced synths are backed by triumphantly rumbling drums on "Skitta." The switch up at around the 55-second mark welcomes you back into Joker’s world with oscillating synths and soon enough the purple drenched bouncing drop slaps you across your doubting face. With one of dubstep’s most high-quality back catalogues ("Tron," "Play Doe," "Digidesign," and the list goes on), his debut album The Vision was sadly mediocre, but "Skitta" is over 6 minutes worth of reasons as to why we should never have worried. It is a more than welcome confirmation of Joker’s craftwork. "I Think You Should Know" comes in 2 versions; one with a vocal and one without. Fortunately here, where his LP failed, the Newham Generals vocal contributions actually fit in nicely with Joker’s suitably grimy, rap-ready backdrop. Out now on Joker’s own Kapsize label.
