Toronto duo Jokers Of The Scene (DJ Booth and Chameleonic) dropped a new five-track EP yesterday. It’s Joker’s fifth release for Fool’s Gold and it also marks the first official release coming from the imprint this year—I couldn’t be more impressed with this 2012 offering. Not to say that I wasn’t expecting quality… I think I had it in my mind that it was going to be another straight-up club banger style like “Baggy Bottom Boys” or “Revolting Joks” or something like that. It does bang in spots, but this is one of, if not the, most expansive release I’ve heard from these two yet. Ambient synth excursions? Check. Vintage sci-fi soundtrack vibe? Check. Experimental techno? Check. It’s perfect for the headphones (I know this because I’m listening to things as I type this on I’m my new pair of SOL Republic Tracks HD—a shout out to them as they sound pretty damn amazing!), I could also see myself kicking back at home (or getting warmed up for a night out) with this on and it’ll work equally as well if you’re in the mood to get down at a little late-night warehouse session. It’s all put together in a way that just makes sense.

Next week (1/24) will see the release of the remix version of this EP. Daniel Avery (aka Stopmakingme), Shadow Dancer (BNR), Hrdvsion (Wagon Repair), Savile & Olin, Cosmic Kids (Throne Of Blood), Gingy & Bordello (Turbo) and Babe Rainbow (Warp) each take turns putting their fingerprint across the Jokers’ new material.

If you’re in Toronto on January 20th you can check out Jokers Of The Scene at Wrongbar and on January 26th they’ll be in San Francisco at Monarch. We’re told that additional dates to follow all winter.
