Joakim Drops New 12"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
In a bit of an unexpected move, the recently relocated NYC-based producer Joakim has dropped a suprise 12" via his own Tigersushi imprint. "Heartbeats" b/w "Another Light" (artwork above) is a single said to be the first batch of completed material which the Parisian artist has slated for an eventual full-length album still in the works. The longstanding producer has expressed plans to continue releasing tracks while the process of making his LP is underway, with further productions appearing on singles down the line so that listeners can "witness an album taking shape before [their] ears." The first piece of Joakim's planned puzzle, the "Heartbeats" b/w "Another Light" 12" is out now; a preview of its b-side cut can be heard below. (via Juno Plus)
