The fourth release on New York's Orphan. Records comes from label co-founder Joey G ii, who delivers four club tracks that explore his teenage years of South London and current days in Ridgewood, Queens. It follows the release of Or.003, Klein Zage’s Womahood EP, in March, and comes with a remix from Whities mainstay Reckonwrong.
Joey G ii, real name Joe Gillick, founded Orphan. in 2015 with friends Sage Redman and Billy Meddleton. The three began throwing bi-monthly parties in Deptford, aiming to feature the unsung heroes of the crowded London club circuit. Come 2017 and the trio found themselves divided by an ocean: Joe and Sage moved to the United States and Billy to Berlin. Despite the distance, Orphan. carried on with events in each location, and it now encompasses a label, operating out of New York and Berlin.
