A regular at Sunwaves, Music On, Unum Festival, Paradise and Caprices Festival, Joey Daniel’s musical heritage gives him a different outlook to many within the scene, with consistency at the heart of his work and thinking. He now steps things up a level with the launch of  SiO Records, a project shaped around the Dutch favourite’s own vision to combine music and graphic design.

“I always looked up to a selection of labels that immediately made you look forward to the next release coming. I knew what to expect; they had a strong musical identity and were all led by an artist within that sound. That’s an idea I always kept in my mind: starting my own label with my sound at its heart while working with and featuring artists with unique styles that fit, regardless of whether they are known or unknown. The artists represented the label, which is what I want to create with SiO. Not only with the music but with the artwork to create a strong visual identity, so when you see it or hear it, you know that it’s SiO.” – Joey Daniel.

Title cut ‘Starting Point’ combines rich chords, slinking bass and resonant melodies across a shuffling roller, while ‘Show Up’ journeys darker and deeper as bubbling low ends work alongside vocal flickers and sharp drum licks. The closing track is Daniel’s ‘Dark To Dawn’ mix, with the Dutchman laying the focus on crisp organic percussion, sweeping synths and off-kilter samples.
