London, next Friday (16th):

I'll be playing a special gig in the Dalston/Stokey area for Heels & Souls x Abandon Silence presents: Joe (Hessle Audio).

All money raised will go to Key Changes - check them out!


There'll be an E&S mixer in the booth, so it's quite possible I'll play a slightly more knob-twiddly set than usual.

Any Liverpudlian fans of Abandon Silence in town might want to check this as it's also their first London party!

In a couple of weeks I'll be in the Alps (!) for the first time to play Worldwide Festival Leysin 19-25 March 2018. I should be playing on the Thursday. Let me know if you're going to be there.

I'm on twitter, in case you'd like to follow me there, and I just posted this:

“Meant to post this a while ago: a kind review of my last 12 in @thewiremagazine from @chalravens (I think!). Thanks 🙏 (PS currently attempting to ~double my rate of output to an unthinkable 1 release per year) 😉”

Here are some shows coming up in March. More info soon!

I've played out quite a bit (for me!) since October and it's been a pleasure. Thank you to the dancers, other DJs, venues, and promoters. I look forward to more.

February is mostly for getting in the studio to (try and) finish some new music.

I am making one special outing though: Tuesday 13th in Manchester for Goodness Manchester Launch: Joe, Reckonwrong, Phoebe Valentine at Soup Kitchen.


Tickets are selling on RA but there's still some left!

The only time I've DJ'd in Leeds before was for Pearson Sound's Acetate night. That was back in 2011!

It was pretty special to play at Wire, because I'd visited quite a few times since 2008 -- mostly for Ruffage (the party co-run by Hessle Audio's founders and others).

This Friday, I'm (finally heading back to the club to warm up for Willow and Pangaea. Advance tickets are sold out but there'll be more on the door.


Thanks Pretty Pretty Good for having me on another great lineup!

I'm playing 0100-0300 at Rye Wax tonight for PPG presents Joe & Yak. The event is sold out and I don't think there will be any tickets on the door. Sorry if you missed it -- it probably won't be too long until I play in London again!

RA tickets here just in case there are any last-minute returns:

(Or, you *might* be able to get in late if some space frees up.)


See you in the basement. :¬)

Told Oval Space about some very reasonably-priced tunes I'm fond of ahead of Monday night's set there. Get down to the Pickle Factory early to catch me play.

No one makes dance music quite like Joe.

Ahead of NYD, we caught up with Hessle Audio's producer-in-chief to ask him his favourite bargain bin records. Unsurprisingly, his selections were eclectic, tasteful, and more than a little left-of-centre.

NYD tickets:

Monitor - Joe’s Top 6 Bargain Bin Gems

London, new year's day: I'm playing alongside Charles Drakeford, rRoxymore and Peverelist at The Pickle Factory for Hessle Audio NYD with Ben UFO, Pearson Sound, Pangaea & More.

The Hessle Audio guys, Joy Orbison and Gwenan are across the road in Oval Space, but I believe one ticket gets you in to both venues all night.

Hope to see you there.

I'm really happy to have joined the roster at POLY. Artists!

As you might know, I play records as well as make them. If you'd like me to DJ sometime, please contact Keira @ 🎉

Chuffed to have Joe join our roster - contact keira @ for bookings!

You probably know Joe for his idiosyncratic, floor-filling productions for Hessle Audio and Hemlock Recordings. Tunes like “Slope,” “Claptrap,” “Punters step out” and this year’s track-of-the-year contender “Tail Lift” have become trusty weapons for some of the world’s biggest (a...

Next Saturday, 2nd December, I'm heading back to Bristol for the first time in a few years to play PPG's Bristol Launch w/ Joe, rRoxymore & Yak.

This is Pretty Pretty Good's debut party in the city, and I'm really pleased to bring some tunes to an intimate basement(-not-basement) alongside rRoxymore and Yak.

I hope you can make it!

The last time I played a gig in London was for Wifey in 2014. That was a really fun party: lots of friends in an intimate, out-the-way venue.

Next Friday, 17th November, it's (finally!) time to play in my home city again. And I'm really pleased to say the setting should feel quite similar.

I've been kindly invited to DJ at Inner Totality Family with Joe + Flørist, alongside the Inner Totality Family residents and Alex Rita. I hope you can make it!
