Belgian duo Joyhauser have enjoyed decent success since their 2017 inception, being part of the resurgence of European techno and breeding it with contemporary sensibilities. With various productions to their name, the duo recently announced the forthcoming arrival of their debut album, ‘In Memoro’, due for release on 23 June on Terminal M.
The album has been three years in the making and marks the beginning of a new chapter for the duo as they aim to enter into the upper echelons of dance music.
To mark the announcement, they’ve just released the album’s lead single, ‘Wasted’, the first of 12 productions.
It contains twisted synths and an oscillating atmosphere that’s dictated by the ebb and flow of its hard-hitting percussion. Forming a dichotomy between palpitating drum patterns and heady vocal chops, it’s a possible underground track with apex moments.
The culmination of friendship formed in 2004, Joyhauser represents the combined talents of Joris Cielen and Stijn Vanspauwen.
