Blind Prophet is native-Long Islander Joseph Burns. He first appeared on the bass music scene in May 2010 with a string of digital releases on labels like L2S Recordings, Car Crash Set and DubKraft Records.
In March of 2016 though he secured his first vinyl release on Portland, Oregon’s ZamZam Sounds – establishing himself as an up-and-coming producer in the world of dub. He continued this ascent in 2017 with releases for Archetype, Moonshine and Alphacut. He also dropped a debut 12″ on Dub-Stuy in the autumn, the deep and meditative Marijuana Burns Capitalism featuring vocals by Russia’s Tenor Youthman.
In addition to his solo efforts, Burns is one half of Folding City with Ben Ulis (Self Evident). Individually, Burns and Ulis’ solo productions are quite different from one another – with Self Evident showcasing his intense, dancefloor-orientated take on grime, dancehall, and footwork while Blind Prophet is known for his reflective and melodic dub, garage and productions kicking at 130 BPM. When the two producers come together though they are able to meld all of their influences into something truly unique.
