Joy O will release a new collaborative EP with London-based saxophonist Ben Vince via Hessle Audio, after the two were introduced to each other by Jon Rust.

We’re told that the two tracks are a result of studio sessions together as well as manipulation of Ben’s existing recordings. Both tracks explore the tonal, textural, and rhythmic possibilities of Ben’s playing within a focused dancefloor framework.

The EP will be Joy O’s first appearance on the London label run by Ben UFO, Pangaea, and Pearson Sound. It will be the label’s second release of 2018, following the Bone Sucka / Proxy EP by Pangaea.

Ben Vince will also be releasing a solo LP with Where To Now? In late May, featuring collaborations with Micachu and percussionist Rupert Clervaux.
