We’ve been waiting on this on for a while now, ever since London Disco guru MiGHty mOUse hinted he was working with Van She’s resident bassist and solo ElectroPopper Matt Van Schie. The result is finally here, premièred on The Magician’s Magic Tape this month, this is Du Tonc’s Darkness.
Darkness isn’t nearly as ominous as it’s name suggests, if fact it’s a pretty playful mixture between intelligent cosmic Disco and Indie-Pop. You may think that moody 80s Indie track, and a slightly Tropical flavoured Nu-Disco tune would make strange bedfellows, but in Darkness’ case the two sit together perfectly. Neither aspect of the song’s character overwhelming the other. A strange juxtaposition between the introverted and extroverted, that results in an insanely catchy sing-a-long chorus and a rolling dancefloor groove. We can easily see Du Tonc producing some of the more intelligent Disco tunes in the coming year.
