Joe Goddard is pleased to announce a North American live tour in May. The 8-date tour, with his brand new live set-up, will see him perform songs off the forthcoming album Electric Lines. All dates are listed below. Twisted disco producer Morgan Geist has put his spin on Goddard’s new single “Home”, delivering a remix that highlights the Daniel Wilson-delivered vocal line and adds some signature Geist percussiveness.
“Home”, the disco-sampling deep house banger about that long cab ride home after a night out clubbing, launched earlier this month with a video from the inimitable Pete Fowler. The journey ‘Home’ starts here on earth before we’re transported into an animated world of nightlife. It’s a positive, joyous video about the possibility of transcendence on the dance floor – a necessary reminder in these times that the dance floor is a place for activism, for cultural exchange, for being around people who are not like yourself.
The track is taken from Joe’s recent solo album Electric Lines. All about connections, the title refers to the colourful cables that link the modules in his Eurorack synthesizer and to the invisible wires that run between all the different kinds of electronic music that he loves. An apt title for a record which brilliantly unites the strands of his prolific career: member of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label.
