Writer Spotlight

Joe Killington

You probably already know Joe Killington and his voice better than you might think.

You may be familiar with his feature appearances on Purple Disco Machine’s “Devil In Me”, Klingande’s “Ready For Love”, Deepend’s “Could Be Love” and Camo & Krooked’s “If I Could” as well as guest vocals on further singles from DJ Katch, Sugar Jesus and DJ Antoine.

In addition to co-writing and singing all of the above singles, he has also written singles for artists like Armand van Helden, James Smith, Otto Knows, Jack Wins, Disco Fries, Brown & Gray,  Adelphi Music Factory, Stealth & Alok amongst many others.

Now he is stepping out to take centre stage with the release of his debut solo single “Painkiller”, an anthemic slice of dance music heaven produced by M-22 and featuring the Ibiza-drenched saxophone of Lovely Laura. Co-written with Sam Gray (Chainsmokers “Takeaway” & Hardwell “Creatures Of the Night”),

“Painkiller – The Radio Mixes” also comes with an all-new Piano Version produced by Steve Booker (Duffy “Mercy” & John Newman “Love Me Again”) as well as a rhythmic mix from M-22.
