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 funky basslines and melody-driven tracks behind the decks. From rocking international summer festivals and raves, to clubs like Victoria’s Hush Nightclub and his current residency, Vancouver’s legendary Red Room, Joel maintains a focused contribution to the electronic dance music scene.
Joel’s first forays into dance music garnered lots of attention with Progressive Sounds giving his track ‘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 collaborations, originals and remixes that landed on mix compilations by Shiloh, Marcus Schulz and Pole Folder. Labels such as System Recordings, Baroque 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.
2009 sees Joel officially keep Vancouver as his home base with frequent shows in the city, a growth of followers and an increase of international shows in the pipeline. On the 3rd Tuesday of each month, his label Dot Dot runs a show on Proton Radio with the sweet sweet sounds of Minimal, House and Tech House.
