Like electro-pop pioneers before him like Kraftwek, John Foxx, and early Human League, Joy Electric’s latest effort entitled, “Hello Mannequin” is electronic music made the way it was originally intended, with a slight nod towards the future. Written, produced and recorded by Ronnie Martin at the band’s own Electric Joy Toy Company, the album is being completed entirely on a vintage Roland System 100 analog modular synthesizer system. With no computers, drum machines, samplers or traditional instrumentation, the classic songwriting influences that shape Martin’s work also add a slight bit of tension to the intricate synth programming.
