Every artist claims to defy categorization. Yet for Jokers Of The Scene, it's not a boast - it's a lifestyle.
Whether stitching together club bangers that double as shoegaze epics, dousing pop songs in the deepest of acid, or simply cranking the techno knob until it hits "berzerk," these skilled DJ/producers have crafted a gleefully anarchic discography without peer. Their path is as much a choice as a compulsion; the duo blazes the JOTS trail at all times, and this determinedly tweaked approach has fueled sweat-soaked gigs from Brazil to Berlin, while providing direction for countless remixes (from Kid Cudi and Passion Pit to Brodinski and Count & Sinden) and signature originals like the anthemic "Baggy Bottom Boys."
Their new Fool's Gold single "Revolting Joks" is the latest in the (un)natural creative progression that has endeared JOTS to fans and fellow DJs around the globe, a kinky bass monster that unfolds into haunted house piano riffs and surging synth blasts for a clever, dark and massive big-room treat. The lone remix comes courtesy of fellow club oddball Boy 8-Bit, whose addictive, loopy tech-house take is a perfect compliment to the original.
