Joakim enlists Luke Jenner, Ex-Rapture singer to croon over some tropicalista vibes on “Bring Your Love”. Just imagine yourself in slow-mo on the beach as a hazy synth waves splash over your feet and slick basslines breeze through your hair.
Joakim, Kindness and Jam City team up to form Everyone. “No Time To Waste” is a deep classic house tune that is held up by a heavy 909 pattern and creeping chord progression. Kindness’ adds some dark crooning that brings the song into a refreshing realm on the dancefloor. This debut release will be out on vinyl on Crowdspacer records on February 11.

Love this remix by Joakim. A great spacey disco house tune, I especially love it when those horn samples kick in the middle. Friendly Fires have definitely grown on me especially with “Kiss of Life”, looking forward to new music from them. Also remember, “one day we’ll live in Paris…”
I’m only a fan of Metronomy remixes, like the Breakbot and the Diskjokke remixes. Joakim revises Metronomy’s new track “Not Made for Love” – he is quite bold by starting the track off upbeat and slowing it down – I feel like that is a ballsy and blasphemous thing to do with a dance track, but he pulls it off. I’m a big fan of what Joakim has been doing lately – looking forward to more stuff.
