HE claims a keen ear for commercial club, pop and dance music, and few would disagree with new city fella Joel Storry, who is earning a name as a remixing force to be reckoned with.
Joel’s latest remix – of the Jason Derulo track Breathing, is released on Sunday, adding another cool credit to Joel’s CV, which already includes remixes for artists including Katy Perry, Nicole Scherzinger, The Saturdays, Inna, Nicola Roberts and Michelle Williams.
And in an industry that is notoriously difficult to break into, Joel has been flying – he only set up his JRMX remix and production company little more than six months back!
“It is difficult to crack,” Joel says of making headway in the remix field.
“Studio equipment has fallen in price and the ability to make music is quite easy. “
But you still have to have an ear for the sounds, and an unbeatable passion for it.
Joel has both.
And, as the resident DJ for Pink Punters (he has spent the past six years warming the dance floor there every Friday and Saturday night), he also has an audience to try his remixes out on. “DJing gives me a good insight into what people like, and the opportunity to play anything out,” says the fella with the musical midas touch.
We’ll bring you more news on Joel’s deliveries soon.
