South London multi-instrumentalist, DJ and producer, Joe Turner returns with ‘Influence’

Following on from 2020 singles Malibak & Crystal Clear, multi-instrumentalist, DJ and producer Joe Turner releases ‘Influence’, out now. The cut forms part of his debut EP, ‘Textures’ is out November 13th on LG105.

‘Influence’ is one of Joe’s more hard-hitting club tracks to date. Built around an array of organic drum samples and fierce synth sections recorded on the Prophet 08, the track twists and turns throughout ending with an explosive and emphatic climax.

“Influence originally started out as something much softer but after playing around with two separate pads on my Prophet 08 and processing them through a tremolo plugin, they became an integral part of the track and I had to adapt it to become something much heavier and for the dancefloor’ Joe says. ‘I love electronic music that has lots of tiny variations in so that every time you listen closely you discover something new and that’s what I wanted to do with Influence, I wanted to take the listener on a journey.”

Born and raised in Croydon, Joe Turner is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting young producers around. He grew up in a house filled with soul music and a dash of nineties electronica. His grandfather, a jazz pianist, was a major influence from whom he’s undoubtedly inherited the musical talent that saw him writing his first song at just eleven years old. Following his teenage years playing in various bands, it has only been in the past eighteen months that Turner turned his attention to writing once again.

‘Influence’ is the third offering of 2020 for Joe Turner and follows a string of DJ sets and live performances. Recently Joe was asked to perform exclusively for Amazon Music via Twitch. This live stream series also saw performances from the likes of Biffy Clyro, Lianne La Havas & Rina Sawayama.
