Red Joy Reid

Real Name:
Joy Reid
Joy Reid was a seminal figure in the early days of underground ambient techno. Courting such notables as Warp's Move D, Planet Mu's Nautilis and Max More, president of the Extropian Institute, Joy left her unique political and artistic mark in an artform where females are rarely judged by their merits. Joy Reid passed away on September 11 2001, overdosing on heroin in a loft apartment in Soho 15 minutes before the first jetliner struck the World Trade Center.

Interesting story, but some of you may remember Red Joy Reid from the days of Those that tried to follow here career (via internet) will note that she apparently died (as noted here in Discogs). In actuality, she was the creation of electronic musician Matt Tuozzo who goes by the name of Cerebral. His website tells the complete story which has some interesting social insights.

Incidentally, Tuozzo is a member of Team Techo whose album released back in '94 is really good (and was once available as a free download at their website).
