More About Joel: Over the last five years, Joel’s name has become associated with quality electronic music. Having established a strong following with his creative productions, he moves clubbers with his signature loopy organic house sounds. Fresh from a two month tour of Singapore and New Zealand, Joel played to fantas- tic crowds most notably on NYE at the famous Rhythm & Vines music festival (voted one of the best spots in the world to be for NYE), and at Velvet Underground, Zouk’s prestigious sister club in Singapore.

Joel’s first forays into dance music garnered lots of attention with Progres- sive Sounds giving one of his debut tracks ‘Serenity’, on Proton Music, a perfect 10/10 review, dubbing it ‘truly astounding’. This piqued the attention of label heads and producers alike, giving way to collab- orations, originals and remixes that over the years landed on mix compilations by Shiloh, Marcus Schulz and Pole Folder. Labels such as System Recordings, Ba- roque Records/Limited, Babylon Records and Joel’s own imprint, Dot Dot Records have released original tracks that were supported by the who’s who of dance music, with Sasha and Hernan Cattaneo charting and giving high praise. More re- cent work see’s Joel’s involvement with Fiord & Tim Richards during his New Zea- land/Singapore tour, resulting in upcoming collaboration releases on Flow Vinyl and Tim Richards new label Signature Sounds.

Vancouver is where Joel currently calls home, keeping a busy schedule in the studio and bouncing around between his various residencies. He maintains a focused contribution the to the electronic music scene and pursues it with passion. On the 3rd Tuesday of each month, his label Dot Dot runs a show on Proton Radio with the sweet sweet sounds of house music.
