iTunes Editors' Notes

At just 16 years old, Liam McLean (a.k.a. Joker) began his rise in the U.K. electronic/club scene, incorporating Bristol’s musical heritage into his own futuristic sounds.

Joker’s dubstep roots (something he’s at pains to distance himself from) are still in evidence with the moody instrumentals “Tron” and “My Trance Girl,” but they’re much more than that, as the frightening flurry of synths and aggressive grooves make clear.
