Music producer Joris Delacroix left us on a positive note with his melodic house song ‘Early Hours’ which features renowned electronic act DJ Shadow collaborator Run Rivers. Now he returns with the latest experimental track ‘Need Your Attention’ which takes a different direction from its predecessor. Probably due to the fact that DJ CEBB features on this track? Or maybe Joris is not set on producing one genre as of late? Compare all of Delacroix’s music against these past two releases, definitely a huge contrast from his earlier sound.
Talking about sub-genres recently with House Music (read interview), Joris mentioned: “There are too many sub-genres. I feel like today we need to put labels on everything and create little boxes we can store things in. In a way, I can understand it, because we have access to way more music and artists than ever. We need to have some landmarks. But as an artist, I don’t pay attention to sub-genres because if you identify with it too much I think it will lock down your creativity.”
We are not sure which direction Delacroix will take next as both recent song releases are highly contrasting with each other genre-wise. One thing is for sure and that is that Joris manages to bring that element of surrealism and mysticism to every track he produces. ‘Need Your Attention’ with CEBB makes one think of skyscrapers falling down – impactful and jawdropping. Having big acts like Joris play around with sound with undeniable charisma gives us hope for the future of quality music.
