One of the fastest rising acts on the international electronic music circuit, Belgian duo Joyhauser have enjoyed a fast-track to global acclaim subsequent to their 2017 inception, leading the resurgence of timeless European techno and breeding it with contemporary sensibilities.
With countless hit records to their name, the duo now announces the forthcoming arrival of their debut album, In Memoro, due for worldwide release in June 2023. To mark the announcement, we’re treated to the album’s lead single, Wasted – the first of twelve stirring productions – out now on Terminal M.
Multifaceted in their approach and unyielding commitment to the scene, Joyhauser’s back catalogue is a rich tapestry of opuses that shows great appreciation for the cardinal cuts of techno’s storied history. Following the colossal success of their last Terminal M offering (Crawler EP), it is only fitting that the pair return to their staple home for the biggest release of their career to date.
A beautifully crafted record featuring twelve original productions, In Memoro has been three years in the making and marks the beginning of a new chapter for Joyhauser, as they prepare to enter into the upper echelons of dance music. Their first full length studio album to date, In Memoro will be available to stream and purchase worldwide from all major DSP’s on June 23rd.
The album’s first single, Wasted, is a masterclass in high-impact techno, serving twisted synths and an oscillating atmosphere that’s dictated by the ebb and flow of its hard-hitting percussion. Forming the perfect dichotomy between palpitating drum patterns and heady vocal chops, Joyhauser have cultivated a rapturous underground track that’s rife with apex moments.
The culmination of friendship formed in 2004, Joyhauser represents the combined talents of Joris Cielen and Stijn Vanspauwen. With an insatiable appetite for knowledge and growth at the epicentre of their flourishing career, dance music’s impetuous progression is a welcomed challenge for the pair.
Presenting a maturity well beyond their years in both their production efforts and track selection, the outfit have become firm favourites for the modern audience and yet still present as an untapped act with the scope to enter into the top rankings of our beloved genre.
