Blush Response is an American Electronic Music project based in New York. It is the solo project of musician Joey Blush.
Blush Response was created in 2009 in New York City as a reactionary statement towards the state of electronic music coming out at the time.
The project officially launched in June 2009 with the release of "Reduce You". A two track release, featuring demo versions of songs that would appear on the debut album “We Are Replicants”
Shortly before the release of the album, Blush Response remixed Dangerous Muse's single I Want It All.
Following the release of “We Are Replicants” came the single EPs “Control Freak” and “Impossible”, which signaled a change in sound for Blush Response. Driving industrial grooves were eschewed for Digital Hardcore-esque cyberpunk beats.
The song Square was featured on the Cracx Track Sampler I, released in 2010.
On “Control Freak”, modular synthesizers and fuzzed out guitars set the stage for what can only be described as an assault of sonic destruction on the listener’s ears.
“Impossible” followed this same formula, but with a more drone influenced sound, emphasized by the second song on the release “Quarter Life Crisis”.
When performing live, Blush Response appears with a full backing band, generally as a three or four piece, often featuring Tom Napack of Aesthetic Perfection and Dangerous Muse on guitar.
In early 2012, Joey was tapped to add additional synth programming to the new Fear Factory record "The Industrialist". He also provided a remix for the deluxe edition cd.
The second Blush Response album Tension Strategies was released on March 05, 2013 on Tundra in the US and Haujobb's label Basic Unit Productions in Europe and Russia.
