Electric Lines, is all about connections. The title refers to the colourful cables that link the modules in his Eurorack synthesizer and to the invisible wires that run between all the different kinds of electronic music that he loves. An apt title for a record which brilliantly unites the strands of his prolific career: member of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, Grammy award nominated remixer and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label.

Like Four Tet, Caribou and Jamie xx, Joe combines a thirst for experimentation, an instinctive understanding of the dancefloor and a love of left-of-centre pop music. Electric Lines confirms his place in the front rank of British producers.

Check out the video for ‘Music Is The Answer‘, the second track to be heard from the forthcoming album. Following hot on the heels of ‘Lose Your Love’, ‘Music Is The Answer’ is an infectious left-of-centre pop track featuring London singer-songwriter Jess Mills, also known as Slo (previous collaborations include Photek, Distance and Breakage).
