Joy Orbison (Peter O'Grady), a dubstep producer from Croydon, London, England, has cited a range of influences including Phil Spector, Todd Edwards, Ray Keith, Martin Hannett, and Arthur Russell. He made his commercial recording debut in 2009 on Scuba's Hotflush label with the euphoric underground hit "Hyph Mngo," which would top Fact magazine's Tracks of 2009 list. Prior to the year's end, he kicked off his Doldrums label with his second single, "J. Doe," and remixed tracks by Jose James and Four Tet. A third release, "The Shrew Would Have Cushioned the Blow," was issued the following March, just after it was officially introduced on Scuba's Sub:stance mix for Ostgut.
