Joy Orbison will be heading stateside this month for a handful of exclusive debut US shows. He kicks of the mini tour with two shows in New York, then proceeding to the West Coast for nights in San Francisco and finally Los Angeles (where he shall appear with Ramadanman/Pearson Sound). If you're in and around these cities whilst O'Grady is appearing, attendance is a must. He is distinct as a DJ as he is a producer, refining a number of different sounds within his sets. I last saw him at Crazylegs in Bristol 3 weeks ago, and his headline set unduly delivered. Sporting his usual blend of the blissful and the bastard, he progressed from deeper house and Detroit sounds through garage, house, and techno bits at 130-140bpm, alongside dubplates of the highest quality as per usual. 'Ellipsis', 'Sicko Cell' and further unknown Joy Orbison material are just a few reasons to attend. NYC, San Fransisco and LA; you have been warned.
