Moonlight Matters made quite an impact in disco blog-land last year after leaving production trio Villa to embarked on a solo career – he started, as any artist should, with a host of smash-hit remixes for the likes of Adele, Hercules & Love Affair and Lana Del Rey.
Well, he’s just released his debut EP and continues to assault disco with an brightly-coloured electro stick – the title track ‘Come For Me’ is a stirring sing-along disco anthem with soaring vocals from Gustaph of Hercules & Love Affair fame – it’s still Moonlight Matters, but just better.
‘Standing Up For Love’ dials down the intensity, for a more twanging disco ballad courtesy of vocals from Starving Yet Full of Azari & III fame – it doesn’t have the impact of ‘Come For Me’ but when the vocal and solo sax come together – it’s hard not to be won over.
The final original is ‘Rain Dance’ which doesn’t feature any guest vocals – it’s full of emotion, atmosphere and sounds like it was written in a jungle during a tropical rain storm.
Moonlight Matters’ debut EP shows off his versatility in spades – when paired with a vocalist he has the ability to create something truly original that can transcend your average club disco.
The EP comes three remixes from Punks Jump Up, Junior and the fantastic Herr Styler.
