Joy again at emn,first at summer selection,now very hype,everybody is talkin about-Another stunning Hotflush release!ANTHEM 2009
Here it is all about Joy Orbison
Joy Orbison still hasn’t released his debut single, but already there’s more hype about him than there are 90% – if not more – of people making dance music in the UK right now. That’s mostly due to the strength of said forthcoming debut single, ‘Hyph Mngo’.
Leading dubstep commentator Martin Clark refers to it as an anthem in the making, Energy Flash author Simon Reynolds calls it a ‘talisman’ (albeit not in a particularly positive way), and it’s garnered massively positive reviews from FACT, Pitchfork and Resident Advisor. On Monday, ‘Hyph Mngo’ will finally be released on dubstep veteran Scuba’s Hot Flush label – but who is Joy Orbison?
Well, as FACT found out when we spoke to Joy this week, he’s actually 22 year old Peter O’Grady, the well-mannered nephew of drum ‘n’ bass legend Ray Keith; he grew up in South London listening to garage icons Todd Edwards, Groove Chronicles and Zed Bias, he’s got future singles coming out on Aus Music and his own fledgling label, and he’s a big fan of emotion in music.

Pitchfork Best new Music,rated 9!
Dance music trends tend to move in such quick arcs that we rarely think of the involved artists as “craftsmen”; there is merely time to define a genre and then advance it. It’s a little bit surprising, then, that the most trenchant, relevant thing to say about Joy Orbison’s* “Hyph Mngo” (first mentioned here by Martin Clark) is that it’s a spectacularly well-crafted dubstep song in the same manner that, say, Spoon writes well crafted rock songs: shaping familiar, predictable ingredients into a unique, easily identifiable whole.
The product of 22-year-old South Londoner Peter O’Grady, “Hyph Mngo” finally sees release after months of streams and samples (that its lock-job successfully kept it out of the hands of chatty internet dance geeks for so long is itself a marvel). High-strung and tense, “Hyph Mngo” relies heavily on a distorted, two-chord organ progression that trails the beat by a half-step. The hook is supplied– and supplied and supplied and supplied– by a popping, looped soul vocal, a woman feverishly repeating, mushmouthed, “I do,” her near-indecipherable syllables justifying the track’s oddball title. O’Grady lets the track build naturally, foregoing any discernible crescendo for sturdy, quick repetitions spiced with increasingly space-y synth noise. The track is self-contained, simple, and weirdly uplifting. If you ever thought claustrophobia could feel triumphant, “Hyph Mngo” is your floor-filling jam.

JOY ORBISON – Hyph Mngo
DUBSTEP / GRIME / FUNKY
Released: Sep 2009
Catalogue Number: HFT009
Where to start with this incredible record? Justifiably, more has been written about this 12″ than practically any other bit of vinyl in the dubstep/post-garage arena this year, with writers at Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, Fact Magazine and any other publication of note queuing up to drape compliments over it’s shiny chassis. We’re not going to hold back on the hyperbolics either, heck no! This IS one of the finest records you’ll hear this year, reflecting the mood of the times with an exothermic blend of Funky functions, Dubstep futurism and studied house classicism that touches on everyone from Carl Craig to Todd Edwards, to Martyn and Shed while weaving through the crowd to the front left, just by the speakers to hold it’s arms up high and swing like it’s loving it. ‘Hyph Mngo’ is just pure, transcendental rave feeling concentrated into 5 minutes of bliss, from the teasing intro crafted to feel like you’re walking into a swinging mass of beaming dancers, to the agile 2-step flex and supple subbass push, this record has nailed the feeling directly onto the ‘floor. ‘Wet Look’ on the flip may not be as well known, but slides out a slippery groove of immense proportions. Orbison splices elevated Detroit sophistication with European technical execution and the requirements of UK dancefloors to result in a stunning riddim that makes us want friday nights to come so much sooner. Suffice to say, we’re addicted to this record and predict great things from this young producer who already has records lined up for his own Doldrums imprint, and possibly Night Slugs so really, watch this space. Essential purchase and, needless to say, hugely recommended!(Boomkat)
