Today I have the pleasure of introducing you all to a longtime friend and even better artist, Joey Paranoia. While the name might imply some sort of timidness, this seasoned vet certainly isn’t afraid of anything when it comes to electronic music…better yet, you’d probably end up being the person who was afraid. Everything from hard-hitting Electro to Dubstep and even Moombahton – Joey’s got it covered. While Mr. Paranoia has made quite the name for himself in Florida and the greater Orlando area, it’s his edgeyness and overall knowledge of EDM which seeps out of each and every production he touches, that will ultimately deliver him into the spotlight. Some say he might just have the touch, I’d say his style has been carefully crafted: combining influences from the early 2000′s rave scene in San Fransisco with the best of today’s bass music and a shit ton of originals has enabled Joey to present his music to live audiences the way he always wanted to; allowing himself to break free from the restrictions of just djing…no headphones, no A to B mixing, just a big ‘ol Ableton pad and a limitless live performance. You gotta respect the man for consistently keeping it fresh in the studio and clubs. Going further, there’s something to be said for a performer who can always have something pretty and something equally as dark in his music. I’ll always love going to see Joey live…not only does he know how to party, but you’ll rarely recognize a song you hear in his sets and they’ll all make you boogy. For someone who’s into new music like we are, that’s an impressive and often over-looked feat. Clearly other people like seeing him bounce around the stage too as Joey has played at Sunset Music Festival, EDC Orlando and Starscape in the past year! The Smile For Camera artist has shared the stage with some of the hottest DJ’s in the business including Afrojack, Dada Life, Skrillex, Datsik, Dillon Francis, Tommy Trash and more. All in all we’ve got 5 tracks, a Free Download and one sick video for Joey’s latest release ‘Nothing Left’ that features footage from his performance at Firestone with Zeds Dead this fall. Hit the jump to see what all the fuss is about and for some updates on Joey’s upcoming shows!
