Joe Goddard (live)

Greco Roman / UK

  • Saturday 17 15:50 - 16:50

    Sónar by Day - SonarVillage by Estrella Damm

Hedonistic house with a heart of pop

Forming the heart and soul of Hot Chip along with Alexis Taylor, the innately talented DJ and producer Joe Goddard is due to release his new solo album, “Electric Lines”, an album that elegantly and without prejudice - like everything he does -  combines funky filtered synth pop and hedonistic house. Goddard is a musician who trusts in his instinct over cerebral calculations, clearly demonstrated by naturally flowing tracks that immediately imprint on the memory, as if they just needed him to discover them. The long established British musician is charged with raising the bar and moving the crowd on Saturday at SonarVillage.

To many, Joe Goddard simply co-heads Hot Chip but his endeavours spread out in several other directions. One of which is The 2 Bears, his other joint project with Raf Rundell, which allows him to unleash his passion for more euphoric and dance floor friendly house music. He is also the owner of the Greco-Roman label, releasing material from artists like Roosevelt, Disclosure and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and enjoys a superb and much deserved reputation as DJ, producer and remixer.
