Joy Orbison 'Still Slipping Vol. 1.' (XL)

 

 

‘still slipping vol. 1’ is the debut full length project
from Joy Orbison.

 

Fans of Joy O’s DJ sets and radio shows will
already be aware of his diverse tastes and
inspirations, represented here through a roll call of
delicately curated, mainly UK collaborators that
include Herron, James Massiah, Bathe, Léa Sen,
Goya Gumbani and TYSON.

 

Just as important are the voices of Joy Orbison's
family - mum, dad, sister Sarah, Uncle Frankie,
Uncle Keith (recently departed), Auntie Helen and
cousins Lola and Mia, as well as Leighann, who
was the first person to introduce him to drum &
bass and garage as a kid and who stars on the
album’s cover art.

 

The family appear throughout the record via a
series of voice notes, his only contact with his
family during this year of worldwide lockdown and
an intimate, vicarious glimpse into the personal
world of an artist who has generally side-stepped
the public gaze.
