Joe Goddard Feat. Valentina on “Gabriel”: Love From London

Written by

Joe Goddard from Hot Chip and, more recently, 2 Bears fame has come out with a track which is an instant crossover hit for me.

It is already getting lots of spins on KCRW and receiving widespread support from DJs on the radio here in the UK. There are also a couple of killer remixes from Seijiand Ossie that are worth seeking out.


Having played it on the radio and in my recent club DJ sets, I have seen the immediate positive reaction it gets. It really represents a burgeoning UK house sound that is strong right now, and with the infectious vocal it’s sure to gain support across the board.

The track is on the Gabriel EP out now on DFA in the U.S.
