Joel started his exploration into electronic music at an early age and by his late teens was an avid record collector and DJ playing at small underground events around Yorkshire inspired by his regular visits to seminal Leeds clubs Back II Basics and The Orbit.
His record purchases from Leeds underground Techno record shop DS2 spiked some interest from the owner, Paul Adamson, who was also the promoter of the now legendary Leeds Techno institution ‘Detatched’ who, after hearing some of Joel’s mixes asked him to warm up for their upcoming guest Oscar Mulero.
After this a residency was secured and Joel played alongside some of the best names in the scene at Detatched and at various parties around the UK and Europe.
Joel now resides in Manchester where he promotes and Dj’s at underground Techno events under the ‘Process’ banner. Recently collaborating with another hugely respected Manchester Techno night Signal the groups efforts are about the truly underground side of the Manchester Techno scene. Pushing forward with their visions of the future not current trends.
Joel’s Dj sets reflect this vision and his style is his own take on futurism, funk, energy and soul.
