Yes it is Maximum Joy. I'm not exactly sure of why we've lost all their vowels but the press release describes this as a dramatic re-imagining by founding members Janine Rainforth and Charlie Llewellin. Maximum Joy were once described as "one of the Slits backed by the Gang of Four" which is pretty accurate indeed. Here we have a new line up with a new take on their sound marrying their original influences (Afrobeat, reggae, avant-garde jazz, funk and pop) with dark electronics, samples and effects.
