Aged just 20, Joker is an immensely precocious talent, he burst onto the Dubstep and Grime scenes in 2008 with the vibrant 'Grimey Princess' and 'Gully Brook Lane' which were released on Earwax and Plastician's Terrorhythm imprint respectively. His productions possess a rare duality of intense and nonchalant energy, the soundtrack to a pimp on an interstellar journey.

Joker's musical peers include Rustie, Gemmy and Kode 9, the recognised tastemaker and man behind Hyperdub who identified Joker as one to watch when he named him as his protégée for Mary Anne Hobbs' hugely seminal follow-up to Dubstep Wars, Generation Bass; broadcast worldwide on BBC Radio 1.

Joker's video can be viewed on Youtube and in testament to the level of interest in this Bristolian talent, continues to be the highest viewed video of the Maida Vale session.

Joker has remixed Roni Size, Simian Mobile Disco and Lil Boots, his productions are battered by DJs including Skream, Rustie, Harmonic 313 and Plastician. Pitchfork named Joker, 2008 Producer Of The Year a huge accolade for a producer who's not only just out of his teens but also just out of the starting blocks.

Born to Grime and adopted by Dubstep, Joker is reluctant to be classified, but his soul drenched productions have been described as Jehri Curl Boogie and Wiley stuck in an elevator with Cameo. Whatever you call it, as we move through 2009 and beyond, Joker is one of the shining stars that can be seen in the distance and by the time the light of his electric melody's reaches our eardrums he has already begun the next phase of his journey.

He was named "2009 king of bass music" by XLR8R Magazine and was featured in the September 2009 issue of The Wire magazine. He has contributed to two releases produced by the London-based record company Hyperdub. His debut album The Vision was released on October 31st 2011.

His song "Slaughter House" was included on the Ministry of Sound Annual 2012, his song "Tron" was on the second edition of the "Sound Of Dubstep" CD and his song "On My Mind" was also included on the 2012 edition of Ministry of Sounds Addicted to Bass series.
