Bird Of Paradise

Bird Of Paradise

Real Name:
Jo Howard
Bird of Paradise is an alias for Jo Howard, the young UK producer who came to prominence via his output on labels such as Jennifer Cardini's Correspondant imprint and New Yorks 'Throne of Blood', his debut e.p on the former reaching number one in the Juno download techno charts in December 2015. He also contributed to a very well received split e.p on the Japanese label 'Blindetonation' and graced the ever growing label 'NEIN' with three remixes for different artists in the same year.

As a DJ, he honed his skills both at his own party, Cubik, in his native Sunderland in North East England, as well as a resident at Man Powers 'Tourist Parties' in neighbouring Newcastle, which have afforded him the opportunity to play alongside such luminaries as Todd Terje, John Talabot, Daniel Avery and Ivan Smagghe.

In all of Jo's music it becomes evident that he is not your usual electronic music producer. He comes from a much wider background. Raised on a steady diet of punk/post punk, and learning to play guitar like his father from an early age defines why Jo's way of arranging music and his eclectic taste is different to his peers.

With a packed release schedule for the next 12 months, and an ever growing touring schedule, 2016 looks set to see him cement his standing as one of the most promising musical newcomers in recent years.
