Stööki Sound is one of the three elements of Stööki (Sound, Vision, & Play) and is comprised of DJ Lukey and Jelacee.
The London duo has established themselves by pushing boundaries within the bass music scene and also staying true to their roots in Grime and Hip-Hop. From numerous U.S. tours, to sharing a tour bus for two months with Keys N Krates, and several successful trips around the globe that have brought them to Australia, China, Southeast Asia, Europe, and beyond, over the past few years Stooki Sound have smashed through these global tours that have been satiating the needs of their rapidly growing fan base. Now in the midst of launching their independent record label, O.N.E Worldwide, their forthcoming Osiris EP includes 7 original Stooki Sound tracks that showcase the duo’s unique blend of Grime, Trap, Electronica, and HipHop, as well as Jelacee’s debut as the group’s lead vocalist. Stooki Sound will wrap up the 2016 with a tour spanning North America, and will then continue to take the #STÖÖKIMOVEMENT to new heights well into 2017 and beyond.
Joker - Official
Liam McLean, a producer from Bristol, England, debuted as Joker in 2007 and released over a dozen 12” singles and EPs through early 2011. Tracks like “Snake Eater” (Soul Motive, 2008), “Holly Brook Park” (Kapsize, 2008), “Digidesign” (Hyperdub, 2009), the Ginz collaboration “Purple City” (Kapsize, 2009), and “Psychedelic Runway” (Kapsize, 2009) built and sustained McLean’s reputation for creating some of grime/dubstep’s most colorful and powerful productions. Later in 2011, after signing to the 4AD label, Joker released his first album, The Vision, which featured several tracks with vocalists, including Jessie Ware, Silas Bjerregaard of Turboweekend, and several MCs.
