Primary 1 has more aces up his sleeve than it takes to get to the final of the Australian Open tennis final. He's not actually a tennis player but 21 year old Joe Flory. If you like breaks, Ed Banger Records, Metronomy, Ali Love, Justice or Digitalism then you need to get his first single release 'Hold Me Down'.
It's an electro funk falsetto vocal masterpiece that has already been devastating the coolest dancefloors across Europe and the UK largely due to the more up-tempo remix from French electronist Yusek. The original mix is a much more funky slow groove which in parts reminds of Ame in the synths used. Both the original and the remix made me wanna get my groove on in a big way.
Primary 1 is currently working on his debut album due for release this summer but if you like Hold Me Down keep you eyes open as he's sure to release some more singles before then. Check his MySpace page for more details of where you can see him live.
