Mixtape: Joplyn

Berlin’s multi-dimensional Joplyn joins our weekly mixtape series and teases her superb new single ‘Speak To Me’, due to be released on Get Physical Music May 19th. ‘Speak to Me’ is a steamy, emotionally intense track with brooding drums. It has the iconic melodic phrase from M.A.N.D.Y. & Booka Shade’s ‘Body Language’ repeating subtly amongst intimate vocal whispers, cowbells and soft shakers, breathing new life into a classic dancefloor refrain. As the warm grooves roll deep, a breakdown allows the melody to move front and centre before the competing drums roll again.

Some current favorites and my own stuff – to be enjoyed alone or in company; winding down or turning up. This mix is whatever you want it to be. Just passing on some Electronic Goodness from me to you.

Joplyn is of German, Vietnamese and Canadian descent. She is a young songwriter, producer & live artist who cooks up compelling sounds on the fly using vocoder FXs, mixing loops, and playing keys. Her unique talents have seen her take to the road on two US mini-tours whilst she held a residency at HI Ibiza last summer. She has released music on Watergate & Crosstown Rebels and has seen her music remixed by Damian Lazarus, Booka Shade & Einmusik.

Her unique post-genre sound is a mysterious, dark, futuristic mix of electronic styles steeped in melancholy and inward reflection, as showcased in a recent edition of Mixmag’s The Lab in LA. Joplyn is also the German Ambassador for the Spotify EQUAL campaign, has accumulated over thirteen million streams on all platforms and has music licensed for the Netflix show ‘We Are The Wave.’

‘Speak To Me’ is a massive track from the inimitable JOPLYN that will light up dancefloors this summer.
