Guido Goes Live, Launches State Of Joy

Bristol dubstep figure returns with full live show and new label.

2012 looks set to be the year that one of our favourite artists returns to the fray, as Guido, the man behind game changing releases like ‘Beautiful Complication’ and ‘Orchestral Lab’, not to mention his superb debut album release ‘Anidea’ back in 2010, launches a new label and live show.

State Of Joy is the newly-minted label, with the first release this week from Guido himself, in the form of ‘Micro X / Vessel Dogs’. Talking to FACT, the label’s main focus will be on Guido’s new material, yet it’s also “welcoming to other artists”. You can preview the first release here.

The live show is set to feature four people on stage. Guido on laptop/synths and acoustic and electronic drums, bass guitar and electric guitar. Sets are said to include tracks from ‘Anidea’, and also showcase fresh productions from the Bristol man.

On top of all that, Guido was nice enough to release three free tracks, which shows him in, as ever, fine form. Download on the player below.
