jozif – Waikiki (part 2)

The glorious creative love affair between Londoner jozif and LA- based Culprit continues unabated, with the artist’s fourth release for the imprint in as many years.

Six months after the first ‘Waikiki’ EP by jozif, Culprit releases its follow-up. The five 1originals that formed the core of the two-part ‘Waikiki’ were the fruits of the intensely prolific period of music-making by jozif. The two originals on ‘Waikiki 2’ highlight jozif’s inimitable sound: organic in essence, steeped in references that reach beyond the classic house/techno clichés, loose and fun, yet with the emotional core and depth of feeling worn proudly on its proverbial sleeve.

Remixes arrive courtesy of two exceptional producers of very different styles but equally strong personal voices: Eric Volta’s idiosyncratic take dives deep into the realm of melodically eerie, perfectly calibrated for the discerning afterhours. Hanfry Martinez is the rising Spanish talent whose love for the ceaseless groove unites him with fellow house groove masters like Apollonia, Djebali and Javier Carballo.

o+ jozif is a figure that is both well known and respected in the London dance community. He has built up a creditable reputation due to his strong releases on labels such as Culprit, Crosstown Rebels and Wolf + Lamb, regular appearances at clubs such as Fabric and a residency at Ibiza’s We Love Space.
