It is with great pleasure that Plant Music present the official debut release from Chicago native WILLY JOY. "Woman Like Me" is a simplified and more sophisticated take on the generally overproduced and grandiose Dutch House sound. Serene synths, saxophones, and female vocals provide the perfect sonic calm before the storm, which crashes against the shore in a wave of hype sirens and military style drums. The contrast is striking, but the result is a complimentary liquid landscape of peaks and valleys.
This dynamic range of sounds is nothing new to Willy Joy, whose "Fly
By Night" parties have become infamous touchstones of an eclectic new dance sound coming out of the Windy City. His DJ sets and original tracks have been packing sweaty dancefloors coast to coast, from major festivals like Lollapalooza right down to your cousin's basement. With support from the likes of Diplo, Brodinski, Boy 8-Bit and Drop The Lime, near-constant touring with Kid Sister, and upcoming releases on both Plant Music and Trouble & Bass, Willy is set to blow up fast. URB Magazine has named him one of the Next 100 artists to watch.
