Preview: Joker - "Old Era"

While the Purple Don's debut LP The Vision as a whole was not much to write home about, Joker's signature take on dubstep remains on the radar of must fans of the genre and continues to impress on the few releases, alt takes and remixes since.  The latest track to surface on his soundcloud "Old Era" (to be released on his own imprint Kapsize) is no exception.  The arpeggiated blips, a harsh bassline, reminiscent of Squarepusher textures but obviously more sequenced, combined with his efficient dubstep drum patterns are everything we loved about Joker and more, not to mention the artwork is pretty amazing (and purple) too.  Preview the track below:

  1. I believe "Liam Petrelli" is credited as the artist on this one. He might be a Joker alias, not sure. On the dubstep forum, Joker says he's not, that Liam is Joker's mate. I guess well see.
