Birmingham’s own, 23 year old, Joey Mccrilley is one of the UK house young guns to watch out for. Having accumulated over 1 million plays on YouTube and 500K + on soundcloud, the amount of work this artist has been putting in has been noticeable from all directions.
Debuting his production status in 2013 with Paranoiak, French record label release ‘Clubhopper’, Joey continued to play shows all throughout the UK and Europe; including nights in Belgium, Serbia, Paris, Switzerland and more. His follow up EP came at the end of 2014 on Toyboy & Robin’s own imprint, ‘Cool Kid Music”. This one saw the release of tracks featuring ‘Alice D’ including ‘Real for You’ which charted on Beatport and propelled the artist into a new limelight.
Continuing this, we saw Joey grace the DJ Mag VIP stage at Global Gathering and smash out sets in London, Cardiff and more. Joey continued on with several major label remixes including remixes for Maverick Sabre (Virgin Records), Jennifer Hudson (Sony) and several for Universal too.
November 2015 we saw debut of Joey on BBC Radio 1 Xtra, having dropped a guest mix for the MVP DJ Cameo. Also we saw the release of a remix on Kitsune records of Danglo.
2016 promises many more releases and new music for the fans of Joey’s work, slowly building an engaging audience with more and more dips in the social awareness of his name and brand. Forthcoming is the two track debut release on Punks Music, which see’s the coming of two heavier broken beat club tracks to display the diversity of this artist. With plans to hit more shows and play more sets in 2016, expect to hear these tracks as a staple feature in the shows!
