It’s certainly been quite some time since we last heard from Anoraak, the brainchild of French producer/singer Frédéric Rivière. But now he’s back with a brand-new track called “Odds Are Good”, a perfectly crafted tune that finds him in dreamy form and oozes synth-pop goodness. “Odds Are Good” is the opening track from Eskimo Recordings’ superb new compilation “The Orange Collection”, the fourth installment of its ongoing series based around colours. The 13-track compilation collects new and unheard material from Marvin & Guy, NTEIBINT, Horixon, and Majestique, and more. It also features Du Tonc’s “Animals”, This Soft Machine’s “On & On”, and Moscoman’s “Fernandez”.

“The Orange Collection” is out now digitally via Eskimo Recordings. Get it here.

Fresh off the release of their single “Animals” on Eskimo Recordings, Du Tonc are already back with a superb rework of the Pixies’ 1989 classic track “Monkey Gone To Heaven”. This rework finds the duo of London producer Mighty Mouse and Matt Van Schie (of Van She fame) delivering a bright, melodious slice of disco-tinged pop with dreamy synths and Balearic guitar licks. You can now grab it for absolutely free below.

In their own words: “We wanted to do something different, we’ve only been working on original music so far so wanted to take some tracks we love and put a different spin on them. We don’t think this could be anymore different to the original.”

Just two months after Du Tonc broke their extended silence to drop “Every Song”, their debut release on Eskimo Recordings, the dynamic duo of London disco maestro Mighty Mouse and Matt Van Schie (of Van She fame) return to the same label with their second single of the year, called “Animals”. A bright, melodious slice of disco-tinged pop, “Animals” finds the duo delivering one of their finest works to date. With its trademark guitar riffs and a sense of melancholy, this tune will get some serious spins on our car stereo this spring.

Du Tonc’s new single “Animals” will arrive on March 30th via Eskimo Recordings.

Mighty Mouse: “Wunder”

After dropping “Ghetto Heaven” earlier this month, London disco don and one half of Du Tonc Mighty Mouse is already back with yet another quality club tune, called “Wunder”, as part of his new series of free tracks made specially for DJ sets. Spanning just over six minutes, “Wunder” is an infectious slice of disco-flavored house, driven by feel-good piano melodies, funky guitar licks and orchestral strings. That’s the way we like it.

“This track was centred around the strings initially, I was actually making something more laid back for earlier parts of my set, so not sure how I ended up with this, but it’s a track to bring a smile to your face, when the dance floor is looking a bit angry,” he says. Grab it for free below and ride with us.

Let’s take a ride with Sydney’s Tear Council, the new project of Van She’s Matt Van Schie, who also operates as one half of Du Tonc, and Michael Di Francesco, also known as Touch Sensitive. Back in 2009 Matt teamed up with Michael Di Francesco to write “Journey”, a single from his “Balmy Nights” EP. This was the beginning of Tear Council, an outlet for Matt’s “more emotional outpourings”. Now the journey continues with Tear Council’s fantastic debut single “Anywhere”, once again co-written with Michael. It’s a synth-driven ’80s throwback with Matt Van Schie’s signature vocals. Colour us excited!

The single “Anywhere” drops on February 13th via Personal Best Records.

It’s been over a year since we’ve heard anything new from our beloved Du Tonc, the dynamic duo of London disco maestro Mighty Mouse and Matt Van Schie (of Van She fame). And now they’re finally back in action with their glorious new single “Every Song”, which marks the pair’s debut release on Eskimo Recordings. Filled with disco-tinged synths, delicate guitar licks and bright melodies, “Every Song” finds Du Tonc effortlessly showcasing their unmistakable style once again. It’s a perfect song for driving with the windows rolled down. Needless to say, it was well worth the wait.

“It was a labour of love”, they say. “We kept coming back to it, leaving it, coming back to it for a year. But despite this we never got tired of listening to it. That’s when we realised it was something special to us and had a timeless feeling to it. Just like “Darkness” and “Surging Memories”, it’s full of emotion and power.”

Du Tonc’s new single “Every Song” is out now via Eskimo Recordings. Buy it here.
