Along with a number alternate versions and new, exclusive tracks he created for the compilation, Joakim’s production as Cray76 showcases a deep understanding unadulterated club energy.
“Cray76 is about my love dance music and club culture,a tribute to the raw and essential energy early house and techno, in my own twisted way,” Joakim explains. “I like to call it dent dance because club music is an extremely codified genre and codes are fun to twist.”
