MOONLIGHT MATTERS – COME TO ME (Electro – Belgium)

Moonlight Matters

After almost two years producing disco-infused beats as one half of Villa, Sebastiaan Vandevoorde is now striking out on his own with his solo project Moonlight Matters. He has already produced a string of acclaimed remixes for the likes of Charlotte Gainsbourg, Monarchy, Alex Winston, Digitalism, Lana del Rey or Is Tropical

For his debut EP, Come For Me, Vandevoorde enlisted a few friends, such as Gustaph from Hercules & The Love Affair and Straving yet Full (of Azari & III fame) who provide vocals on “Come for Me” and “Standing Up For Love” respectively. Note that the download bundle also features remixes by Jerry, Herr Styler and Punks Jump Up.

All in all the EP includes three original tracks and it’s available now via Kitsuné. For some reason Mighty Mouse’s epic 7-minute remix of the title song didn’t quite make the cut for the official release, which is strange given how deliciously infectious it actually is. But fear not because Moonlight Matters has decided to release it anyway as a free download via his Soundcloud page.

THE MAGICIAN – I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO (Disco/Electro/Club – Belgium)

After months and months of anticipation, many mixtapes and a bunch of crazy remixes, Belgian rising star of Nu Disco The Magician aka Stephen Fasano, formerly one half of Aeroplane, is finally ready to introduce his long-awaited solo debut, the single “I Don’t Know What to Do”. He dug into his eclectic bag of tricks to conjure up a devilishly tasty record, featuring vocals by Danish artist Jeppe Laursen.

The single, which will be out on legendary Parisian label Kitsuné on October 3rd, will showcase three stunning remixes by Fabian, Plastic Plates and Second Date.

The Magician made the decision to fly solo from Aeroplane only about a year ago but his has been a meteoric rise. Stephen first appeared under his new guise through his popular ‘Magic Tapes’ mixtape series available as free downloads on Soundcloud.

These didn’t go unnoticed among music aficionados and neither did his stunning remixes for the likes of The Aikiu, Beni, Yuksek and Lykke Li. The Magician’s remix of Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers” became an instant cult hit and garnered over 3 millions plays on YouTube. The final push was the release of “Twist”, a collaboration with Yuksek which got massive airplay across clubland this summer and cemented The Magician’s reputation.

With its simple yet efficient piano hook, “I Don’t Know What to Do” is a pure disco-house jewel enlightened by Jeppe’s voice. The club mix and the remixes by Fabian and Plastic Plates, are punchy electronic excursions and are perfect peak time club bangers.

SHINDU – HAPPY HOUSE (Electro/Pop – Belgium)

Out of the dark and into the blue, two boys and a girl from Belgium collide to create Shindu. A refreshing synthpopsensation that embodies the challenge to take music into the dawn of a new era. Shindu started out as DJ duo Static & Greedy, created a while back by Christopher D’havé and Maxime Abbenbroek, who spent years journeying through Belgian club life and sharing their quirky mixture of electro with crowds of happy dancers. To complete the band, they needed a strong leading lady so they set up some auditions and it quickly became clear that Chibi was the right one for the job. As for the icing, they got introduced to producer Sebastiaan Vandevoorde (aka Moonlight Matters), met up in the studio, exchanged some ideas and finally felt we’d established the perfect team to get things started.

Shindu – Happy House

Shindu create jaunty yet clever dancefloor-friendly tracks drenched in late 80s electronica and synthy atmospherics. Their version of Siouxsie and the Banshees’ 1980 classic song “Happy House” is too good, so here it is for you to enjoy. The Happy House EP with remixes from Herr Styler, Midnight Savari, JBAG, Martians and Polydor is out since June 27th on Kitsuné.
