Joy Orbison (born Peter O'Grady) is a DJ and producer based in London. His style is a coalescence of future garage, dubstep, UK funky, UK garage, breakbeat, and house. O'Grady achieved underground success with his debut single, "Hyph Mngo" released via Hotflush Recordings in October 2009.
O'Grady credits his uncle Ray Keith with introducing him to jungle and UK garage at a young age. At 13 he took up DJing and eventually moved into production in his 20s, using Fruity Loops to create 8-bar grime loops before developing his sound combining house, disco, and dubstep. He cites influences as diverse as J Dilla, My Bloody Valentine, GG Allin, Josef K, and The Beach Boys.
His debut single “Hyph Mngo” was called the most forward-thinking dubstep track of 2009 and received airplay and floorplay worldwide. This was followed by “BRKLN CLLN” on O’Grady’s own Doldrums label, which he runs in tandem with partner Impey. In 2010, O'Grady released "The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow" on Aus Music, an eclectic record label founded by Will Saul and Fink.
In 2012 O'Grady began a residency at Manchester's Meandyou club night.
