AMBY got cozy with Joel Hood last summer. Joel has been making his line of “not very danceable dance music from the north of England” for a couple of years now, with tracks like “Follow the Fool”, “Getaway Car”, and “Campanero” building up a steady stream of followers.
Joel is now back with a new track “GBG Belongs to You”. It’s a laid back but uplifting track with slightly detached vocals over a distinctly chilled beat that evokes endless sunny summer afternoons – and I dare say will be the soundtrack to a few post-allnighter early mornings too. The production is top notch too, with a quality that we’ve become accustomed too that speaks of an artist at the top of their game. No doubt a lot of hard work goes into this, but it is never hard work to listen too – so just, well, chill out and enjoy it.
