Joi Sound System - a 22 track double album compiled from Joi's three gloriously inventive albums: 1999's One and One is One, 2000's We Are Three and 2007's Without Zero, plus three bonus tracks.
Three sublime albums. A dazzling assemblage of tracks. Choosing a Best Of was never doing to be easy.
"It was as if the tracks chose themselves," says Farook of a double album that opens with bonus track and former NME Single of the Week, 'A Desert Storm'.
"When I looked back at the way the titles fell, right from 'A Desert Storm' to 'We Need Your Vote', from 'Show Me Love' to 'Asian Vibes', from 'World of Colours' to 'Flying With You', I saw they were telling the story of Joi in words and in music."
Joi Sound System is a gift and a blessing for the multitudes who know and love Joi - as it is for new fans and second and third generation Asians alike.
"I want to turn my own people back onto the music," says Farook. "We have a generation of young British Asians who have become very westernised, who through no fault of their own have dismissed their family heritage and traditions. Joi turned the West on to Asian music. Now we're sending it back the other way.
