LOCAL HEROES #006 BY JOYFULL FAMILY
More than ten years ago Joyfull Family was a music project directed to create underground tracks and house remixes. Production team was made up of three young italian djs from Lecce (Salento): Cristian Carpentieri, Guido Nemola and Chico Perulli. "Da Breaker" (2005) was the first release of the team and it became a massive club hit, number one in sales charts in Italy and in other countries in the world (Pete Tong Essential Selection, for example).
In a few months Joyfull Family remixed a lot of international artists such as Corrina Joseph, Shawn Cristopher and the classic house song of Cajmere and Dajae, "Brighter Days”.
Today each dj of the crew plays in most important clubs in South Italy spinning his records with world top djs. But now, after so many years, they are back together in the recording studio to produce some old school flavor house music.
Joyfull Family now releases on I!Records (Kevin Yost’s label) and his tracks often brake into the Traxsource Top 10 Deep House chart, staying there for several weeks.
They also released on D-Floor Records (label of Pirupa, Leon and Nice7) and Sole Channel Music and on next months they will release some new EPs on some great house labels such as Nervous, Hudd Traxx, King Street Sound and Sneaky. Several remixes are produced by this crew in the last period, such as the classic italo house Found Love by Double Dee for IRMA and the new production of the Chicago house legend Joe Smooth.
Joyfull Family releases many vinyls, too. His latest official vinyls are Major Panther Ep for Wound Music and Arrange Me featuring Mike Anderson for Disciplina. Each of these vinyl releases contains remixes from very important artist such as Jamie Anderson, Takuya Yamashita, Melchior Sultana, Murphy Jax and Memoryman.
