The musical act Distant People is the brainchild of UK DJ and producer Joey Silvero. A former DJ in the vibrant Midlands Drum and Bass scene, Joey caught the House Music bug while running the now defunct record store Fat Grooves. As he began to DJ in House venues like Miss Moneypenny’s and Passion’s Red Room he was drawn to the inevitable path of musical production. Joey developed a connection with two fantastic song writers- Tasita D’Mour and Patrick Chappell. These two talented veterans have had a great deal of influence on Joey’s musical works.
Joey’s first major release, “Just Sing” on Foliage Records was met with critical praise and commercial success and was a featured track on the Defected Miami Compilation 2009. Joey currently has a slew of new releases on Large, Purple, Sole Channel, Metrogroove and Tribe. He can be heard regularly as a DJ on SSR radio and is soon to be joining the international DJ circuit.
