Midnight To Monaco: “One Way Ticket”

Los Angeles-based duo Midnight To Monaco, consisting of vocalist Ricky Ducati and songwriter/producer Donnie Sloan, who has also worked with Empire Of The Sun, have returned with their superb new single “One Way Ticket”. The free-spirited cut, with its radiant vocals, offers a wistful snapshot of journeying through California, where Midnight to Monaco record most of their music. The track will appear on the pair’s upcoming debut EP on Future Classic.

“I originally wrote the music as an idea for Empire of the Sun, another group I work with, complete with acoustic guitars and synthesizers. But when Ricky sang on the track, it really came alive and perfectly lent itself to the 50’s and 60’s doo-wop sound we’re inspired by. So much so, that the final version features backing vocals from Matt Jardine, the son of original Beach Boy, Al Jardine. It’s an ode to Annie, the dream girl that never actually turns up, and perhaps only exists in your imagination,” says Donnie Sloan.

A few weeks ago, Chicago’s The Black Madonna graced us with a killer house rework of Robyn’s “Indestructible”. Now, she’s back in action with yet another remix, a rubberband funk re-rub of Tiga’s jam “Blondes Have More Fun”, a track taken from his recent “No Fantasy Required” album. And it’s so damn good. Give it a spin above, and ride with us.

Speaking about the remix, The Black Madonna says: “Reimagining someone else’s work is one of the most fun parts of producing for me. I’m a huge Tiga fan, so the chance to work with this track was really exciting and I am super happy with the remix. It was also great to get to try out my new powerhouse synthesizer, the Moog Voyager, which I picked up from Moogfest, along with my engineering partner Rupert Murray and our buddy Chris La Barbera who we’ve been working with on the next Black Madonna project with.”

Tiga’s “Blondes Have More Fun” remix package also includes reworks by prolific Swedish producer Jonas Rathsman and Running Back boss Gerd Janson. Get yourself a copy of The Black Madonna’s “Immaterial Girl” remix here.

Tomorrow is party time! La.Ga.Sta. is driving to London for the second “ΓΚΑΡΑΖ” (Garage) event at our favorite hangout Dalston Superstore. Driving with us on August 5th will be two of our favorite peeps, Cut Copy’s frontman Dan Whitford under his dance alter-ego Bobby Boomerang and fellow Aussie DJ/producer and Cutters Records very own Knightlife. They are joined by resident Vangelis, Nic Fisher, Fannar and Wes Baggaley. It’s gonna be epic fun. Get on down! For more info head here.

Bobby Boomerang (Cut Copy/Cutters Records)

Cut Copy’s frontman and Cutters Records label boss Dan Whitford recently stepped out from behind the microphone to drop his ace debut solo release, a two-tracker called “Uncharted Waters”, under his dance alter-ego Bobby Boomerang. Dan Whitford has long held a fondness for the deeper reaches of dance music, having DJed an eclectic mixture of house and disco and in Melbourne’s clubs some years before keyboards and guitars cross pollinated to bring Cut Copy into existence. And in some ways his first solo release is a musical homecoming. On “Uncharted Waters” we find Bobby Boomerang returning to its place of origin to explore his reinterpretations of Balearic house and techno, generated by experiments with his menagerie of vintage drum machines, samplers, and keyboards.

Knightlife (Cutters Records)

Australian producer and DJ Mike Gamwell, aka Knightlife, who now has found home in deepest Bath in the UK, never ceases to amaze us. Since first emerging from Melbourne’s smoke-machine laden dancefloors during disco-tinged house revival of the late ’00s, Mike Gamwell’s penchant for forward-thinking electronica paired with meticulous production has entrenched him in the upper echelons of Australian producers. Signed to Cut Copy’s authoritative Cutters Records in 2007, over the next few years Gamwell released a string of excellent EPs and top-notch remixes that succintly encapsulated the sights and sounds of ever-evolving electronic landscape.
