Joplyn is of German, Vietnamese and Canadian descent. She is a young songwriter, producer & live artist who cooks up compelling sounds on the fly using vocoder FXs, mixing loops, and playing keys. Her unique talents have seen her take to the road on two US mini-tours whilst she held a residency at HI Ibiza last summer. She has released music on Watergate & Crosstown Rebels and has seen her music remixed by Damian Lazarus, Booka Shade & Einmusik. As her new single ‘Speak To Me’ drops on Get Physical Music, DMCWorld goes back to mine with JOPLYN.
Sade – Love Is Stronger Than Pride
Growing up Sade is all that was ever playing at the house and she is probably the artist that has influenced me the most in my life.
Ones, just lil – Burning
A recent find and current obsession.
SAULT – Fight For Love
Calms me down instantly (which is exactly what you need at home).
Amel Larrieux – Bravebird
Amel Larrieux and that album in particular is an all-time favourite and loaded with a lot of memories for me.
Malik Djoudi – Sous garantie
A gem that never gets old. also the only way for me to brush up on my (terrible) French nowadays.
FCL, San Soda – It’s You (San Soda’s Panorama Bar Acca Version)
Minimalism at its best. always a good reminder for me that less is more and the magic is really in the songwriting – everything else comes second.
Dariush, Benjamin Amaru – hearts <3
Stumbled across this a couple weeks ago and kind of dig it a lot.
Kraftwerk – Musik Non Stop
The biggest flex as a German is to say we had Kraftwerk. the GOATs and no matter how many times I listen I always end up learning/discovering something new.
Imogen Heap – Hide and Seek
I’m a big vocoder girl and this will always be the blueprint. definitely a top 10 song of all times.
Tchaikovsky – Waltz of the Flowers
Had to throw this in here, because it is 1000% what I will listen to on a Sunday morning when I just want to be alone with my thoughts. instant button to turn off the world around you.
JOPLYN ‘Speak To Me’ is out now on Get Physical Music.
