Joe Goddard is a very good time! Not only is he a member of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears, a songwriter, producer, DJ, remixer and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label, but he also shares our love of everything to do with Spain (tortillas, Barrafina, Ibiza... we could go on).
He's remixed the likes of Kraftwerk, New Order, Disclosure, Dirty Projectors, the Chemical Brothers, Wiley and Jessie Ware, produced tracks for Franz Ferdinand, Bernard Sumner, Little Boots, Dels and Mashrou Leila and released a string of solo singles, including "Gabriel", his haunting 2011 hit with singer Valentina, and “Taking Over”, from his first proper solo album, Electric Lines, on Domino. He has also released tracks with Michael Mayer, Tuff City Kids, Eats Everything, Mathew Dear, Mixhell and Hayden Thorpe from Wild Beasts in recent years and has some nice projects currently in the lab alongside his follow up solo album.
Able (of course) to command festivals and auditoriums, Joe is also one of the best house party DJs around, instinctively able to put together ad hoc sets that really capture the moment.
With an encyclopaedic knowledge of music, a thirst for experimentation, and a love of left-of-centre pop music, Joe knows how to bring a little magic and a lot of fun to any gathering.
Sound good? It does to us too. Which is why we’re honoured to say that Joe has agreed to accept commissions for bespoke playlists, via UJ.
