Joe Miller – The Last of the Great Days [Sound Avenue]

7 min read

Madloch's Sound Avenue imprint continues a fruitful year welcoming Joe Miller to the label for his debut EP. A firmly recognized name in the electronic underground, the Melbourne resident lays claim to releases on All Day I Dream, Dream Culture, Magician On Duty and Sag and Tre. Now making his much anticipated Sound Avenue debut, Joe presents his 'The Last of the Great Days' EP alongside remixes from Jamie Stevens and Jean Caillou.

Sitting in the creative space between electronica and deep house, organic is often a term aptly associated with Joe's music. The title selection sits firmly in the latter category with its deep dulcet tones, warm bass swells and timely piano motifs. Building in waves, it's a series of haunting overlays which sits as the primary theme, perfectly blanketing tranquil arps and luminous percussion, across a concise and heartfelt six minute journey. The companion piece 'Nightjar' finds Joe exploring the electronica side of his studio repertoire. A style he's been flexing more of late, incredibly fresh and highly creative, it's a collage of uniquely processed and wonderfully creamy tones that captivates here. All eet over a bed of broken beats and wistful atmospherics, which ultimately underpin the narrative.

The first interpretation of 'The Last of the Great Days' is provided by Jamie Stevens who makes his label debut. Fresh off an EP for John Digweed's Bedrock Records, the Australian artist has also showcased his music on All Day I Dream, Lost and Found, microCastle and Replug. Now making his Sound Avenue debut Jamie provides a stunning take on 'The Last of the Great Days'. Deep, intricate and undeniably groovy, it's a mesmerizing journey into the depths of hypnotic house. A touch tougher, it's buoyant framework is offset with astral aesthetics and a less distinct take on the lead theme, making it ideal for a broad range of dance floors while still delivering a heartfelt message.

Rounding out the release and providing the second and final interpretation of 'The Last of the Great Days' is Jean Caillou. Hailing from Zurich, the Swiss artist has established himself in the world of organic house with releases on Magician On Duty, Sag and Tre and Underyourskin Records. Also making his Sound Avenue debut, Jean delivers a gorgeous rendition of 'The Last of the Great Days', sitting as a perfect complement to its predecessors. Deeper and dreamier, a smooth vocal phrase gets introduced to the narrative, adding a wispy almost celestial mood to the journey, while spirited atmospheres and smooth chord changes elevate the mood during a tasteful final act. It caps off another impressive collection of music from Sound Avenue and a welcome debut on the label for one of Australia's fastest rising stars Joe Miller.
