Listen: Joy Orbison – ‘2M3 2U’

Joy Orbison has released his new single ‘2M3 2U’, a catchy and futuristic sounding track that follows previous tracks ‘pinky ring’ and ‘red velve7’ and sees Joy O continue his journey towards the dancefloor.
“I see this one as a bit of a UK take on hyperpop,” says Joy. “But with a bit of bass weight. the vocal part could be a sample of some garbled message of love in Bladerunner or the Fifth Element, and the main riffs had me thinking about the DJ Narrows records we’d play at youth club parties. Interesting top lines seem to be a bit absent in my world these days and I’ve definitely been influenced by contemporary drum & bass and their endless search for the catchiest wobble.”
After another summer of standout performances at the likes of Sonar, Glastonbury Festival, Houghton and All Points East, 2022 also saw Joy Orbison release his take on Jorja Smith’s ‘Rose Rouge’, as well as another collaboration with Overmono. Dominating the UK’s dance music scene alone or collaboratively, who knows what 2023 will bring? Like the movies that it references, perhaps ‘2M3 2U’ is a glimpse of the future.
