11. Joey Anderson, 'After Forever'
New Jersey-based producer Joey Anderson makes earthy house music that would sound just as at home in intergalactic transport. It's gaseous and strange, weighted down for familiar rhythms but with a different sense of gravity. He got his start as a dancer, though his preferences run a little more abstract. Tracks like "It's a Choice" and "Sorcery" get groovy over odd, stuttering breakbeats, while others like "Sky's Blessings" drift in patterns more in line with Chicago footwork. It's all house music, however, so After Forever always finds a way to waver and float. A.B.
