Debut LP from Joe Morris

It’s ten years since Joe Morris enjoyed his first release of original music. In the ensuing decade Joe has sharpened his skills indelibly, gaining a reputation with an ear for music with depth, emotion and feeling. Fitting then his tenth year in the studio sees him release his debut album. Designed as a 360 degree view of his kaleidoscopic musical palette, 'Exotic Language’ is a nine song opus taking in deep house, new age, ambient and afro textures. Opener ‘Firefly Island’ is a horizontal mood setter, washing over you with its gorgeous soundscapes. ‘Perfume’ sees a delightful collaboration with Private Agenda who lend their unique, dreamy vocals. ‘A Dance With Jupiter’ takes inspiration from classic Chicago house music while ‘Echo Station’ is an experiment in Dub. Things get spacey and ethereal on ‘Celestial Plantation’, ‘Dream Clouds’ is an ode to early Italian deep house. ‘Acid Safari’ is a wigged out slow burner and ‘Spirit Walker’ takes inspiration from Larry Heard and afro house. Final track ‘Milo’s Theme’ is a bitter sweet closer to the album, with a guest appearance by Joe’s nine month old son.
