I love those first jazzy, '90s-pop-summoning chords that glassily roll around on Bristol producer Joker's new track 'Midnight', but they don't really give any clear indication as to the direction of the track, which explodes into columns of crumbly distortion and crushed synth melodies underpinned by urgent beats and serious strings.

And that vocal sample you're hearing? That's Jennifer Lopez on her 1999 track 'Waiting For Tonight'. The track grows into a beast and then curls up again with that heart-rending electronic piano, the glitter of rain falling on a late-nite café window lit by luminous streetlights. Sounds like midnight, basically.

At the same time as dropping this track, Joker announces a new album called The Mainframe. Here's what he has to say about it:

"I want everybody to listen to it once from start to finish, in their whip, in their yard, in their studio, going for a run whatever… cos that's how I intended to bring people into my world. After that pull it apart however you want, put specific tracks in your playlist that suit your mood, your lifestyle cool but this is my A/W 15 collection, take it in as a whole and you’ll be able to get more from the individual pieces."

Interesting, right? It'll be out February 16th 2015. In the meantime, he's working on production for projects by Katy B, Nas and Joel Culpepper. Listen to 'Midnight' below.
