2022 has been a year full of highlights for burgeoning star and steadily evolving artist, DJ Joel Corry. “Playing the main stages of festivals around the world such as Tomorrowland, Creamfields and EDC Las Vegas was a total dream come true,” the Top 100 newcomer and former Geordie Shore star tells DJ Mag. His recent collaboration with rising chanteuse and Brit Award winner Becky Hill on their strong single 'History' hit the banger-ometer and blew up dancefloors and fields across the summer months. It followed his team-up with David Guetta and Bryson Tiller on their rather large 'What Would You Do?' single in March.
Now that the summer's out of the way, Joel will be taking up a big USA and Canada tour, as well as getting creative in the studio. “I have been working hard on a brand new single. This record is a new direction for me, so I'm super-excited (and nervous) to release it,” he reveals, as well as telling us of news that he's working on a clutch of new club tracks and there are some big collaborations in the pipeline. “I am ready to finish 2022 with a bang!”
