Glasgow-based producer Joe Howe’s productions will be well known to those of you with an ear for quality electronica and slightly strange synth-driven pop in his Ben Butler & Mousepad and Gay Against You guises. He’s decided to lift the mask however and “EXEP”, his latest release is his first under his own name and it’s found a home on esteemed imprint Sound Pellegrino.

The eight tracks contained within take in airy electronica, spacey disco and much much more, get your ears around our pick of the EP below and pop on over to Juno and snag a copy for yourself if you know what’s good for your ears.

Joe’s also a rather fine DJ and kindly dropped by to deliver this tidy guest mix with tunes from Mouse on Mars, Truss, Feadz and more making the cut.
