Joe Turner reveals his first single of 2021

‘Too Much’, out now on electronic imprint LG105, marks the first release of the year for Croydon multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ, Joe Turner who has previously been championed by BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, Jaguar, Pete Tong, Danny Howard, BBC 6 Music’s Nemone & Tom Ravenscroft, Jamz Supernova, Complex UK, BBC Introducing London, TSHA, John Digweed and more…

Speaking about the release, Turner recalls “Too Much is a track that means a lot to me. I’ve been holding onto it for a while now, waiting for the right moment to release it. I wanted it to feel like a journey, one that starts off slow and melancholic but builds and builds into this big euphoric explosion at the end. It was always intended as a track for live shows (remember them?) so I’m excited to start performing it again later this year.”

Mixed by Joe & mastered by Stuart Hawkes (Disclosure, Mura Masa, Rudimental), ‘Too Much’ takes listeners on a euphoric journey from start to finish, showcasing Joe’s ability to weave intricate layers around prominent chords & vocal samples, before heading towards an electric-guitar-driven breakdown. Turner then regains momentum, building with synth stabs and percussive elements, creating a sense of release as the track culminates in under just 4 minutes.

‘Too Much’ follows on from Joe’s 2020 Textures EP, which received critical acclaim from press, radio and fans alike.  The record also marks a change of art direction for Joe, as he collaborates with Melbourne artist Edapollo (Hayden James, Outlier Event – Bonobo & Gabrielle Aplin) for the single’s artwork.

Fast becoming a tastemaker’s tastemaker, Joe already has the approval from the likes of fellow musicians TSHA, John Digweed, Joe Hertz, Hessian, Eelke Kleijn and Durante via his Anjunadeep Edition, as well as editorial playlist support from Spotify Altar, The Loft, Melodic & Euphoric – Apple Music Loops, New In Electronic, UK Risers, New Music Daily – Soundcloud Fresh Pressed – Deezer Brand New UK – Amazon Music Brand New Music, Progressive Dance – YouTube Music Progressive Warehouse.
