Albert Joseph grinds out yet another dance floor motivator complete with slapping percussion, rolling snares, and 808 drops deep enough to soak in. Topped off with an ample portion of AJ’s signature synth melodics and glitchy soundscapes, the third release from the Glass Cannon camp goes hard!
Albert Joseph’s brand new imprint, Glass Cannon, kicks off with this hybrid club banger. The track’s lush cinematic intro sets a perfect stage for the onslaught of brazen hip-hop rhythms, aggressive dubstep bass lines, pulsing main room synths, and elegant symphonic melodics that ensue as the beat drops. Walk Away’s progressions dive deep into the emotional realm, then even deeper into the underworld, only to resurface transformed, balanced, and renewed.
I produced the original Contemplation in Phoenix Arizona in 2006 for my live-pa sets but never ended up releasing it. I figured it would be nice to remix this legacy track and add some updated sounds and effects to make it relevant to today’s listeners. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!
I produced Megachile Pluto in Oakland California in the summer of 2006 for my San Pablo EP. This track was inspired by the slappin’ hyphe beats coming out of the Bay Area at the time. Bangin’ this track in my friend Parker’s Cadillac DTS was one of the high points of my summer, well at least until I crashed it while he was out of town!
Albert Joseph’s instrumental album, Afterourz, will take you on a journey through a sonic dreamworld that connects the urban and the pristine aspects of human life in this day and age. With sounds ranging from grinding electronic basslines and rhythms, to tranquil organic ambiances, this album fuses stirring tonal elements of many exotic and surreal origins.
With this album, Albert takes you on a nonstop voyage through 13 continuously mixed tracks brilliantly forged together with orchestrated interludes, ecstatic climaxes and impeccable phrasing. Afterourz moves bodies, with knockin’ rhythms for the feet, bangin’ basslines for the hips, rollin’ percussion for the shoulders, sizzling melodic synthlines for the hands, and textured atmospheres for the mind.
