On March 11th Donky Pitch introduce Joseph Petersen to the label with ‘Wishbone’ a six track EP of wild sonic adventures – a unique and inventive blurring of genre boundaries with orchestral drone, squashed hip hop and dance floor fusions heavy with synth melodies, guitars, tough percussion and a restless energy that is present in every track. A highly individual and experimental release that finds a perfect home on Donky Pitch

Joe Petersen is a 17 year old producer from New Orleans, he developed his interest in music from his parents – his father being a well respected Jazz musician – and creates music that is a reflection of his environment. Influenced as much by American folk, Cuban rhythms and hardcore, as he is by electronic music, he has put out numerous self released mix tapes of original material and released on Black Link Sound.

On July 6th Lockah follows up his recent ‘And Blue Brindle Too’ EP (which picked up support from Fader & Noisey) with a new long player, “It Gets More Cloudy…’, which furthers his stylistic progression, integrating a host of live instruments and vintage synthesizers into his set up – all recorded in a remote Sussex studio featuring guitar by Mount Bank and drums from Lockah himself.

IGMC finds Lockah reaching for pop driven melodies, delivering joyous moments of funked out basslines, ear worm synth lines and beats drawing from a rich palette of electronic music from the past and present creating original music with a unique personality.

Following a series of releases on Mad Decent, Mishka, Activia Benz & Donky Pitch as well as his own Tuff Wax imprint, Lockah released his debut album ‘Yahoo Or The Highway’ via Donky Pitch in 2014, gaining support from Pitchfork, XLR8R, Dummy & Resident Advisor. He has remixed Hundred Waters, Danny Brown, Jaw Jam & Slugabed, provided guest mixes for Diplo on BBC Radio 1 & Dummy Mag and played shows across the UK, Europe and Australia.

On April 27th Lockah will return to Donky Pitch for a five track EP and the first new material since the release of his debut album ‘Yahoo Or The Highway’.

‘And Blue Brindle Too’ marks a shift towards live instruments, providing a new dimension to Lockah’s unique pop driven take on electronic music. Adding guitar (played by Samuel Organ aka Mount Bank) and drums (played by Lockah) to his trademark squirming synth melodies and funk filled basslines that once again touch on rave, electro and R&B, Lockah continues to push his own brand of inventive, fun and innovative music.

Following a series of releases on Mad Decent, Mishka, Activia Benz & Donky Pitch as well as his own Tuff Wax imprint, Lockah released his debut album ‘Yahoo Or The Highway’ via Donky Pitch in 2014, gaining support from Pitchfork, XLR8R, Dummy & Resident Advisor.
