It’s been a while we’ve been waiting for the next track from the coalition of Matts Du Tonc. International jet-setters MiGHty mOUse and Matt Van Schie have chosen to kick off this year with a track that they’ve been kicking around for a while, honing it to perfection. Every Song is the first track from the Indie-Disco duo to be picked up by Eskimo Recordings; we can see that partnership between the acclaimed label and these guys being a long and fruitful one.
Breezy Island vibes kick off Every Song; which is possibly the most 80s track from Du Tonc to date. A Disco New Wave oddessy with a swirling mixture of rolling bass and gently stabbing synths liberally peppered with Island guitar that gives off a Tropical early-80s Blondie vibe. This all makes of a blissful soundtrack for Matt (the Van She one) to deliver a summery croon that exudes an effortless cool. January feels like July with Every Song dripping out of the speakers.
Pure Cosmic Disco energy right now in the form of the new rocker from galactic overlord MiGHty mOUse. This latest dancefloor behemoth is a reMix for German duo Achilles & One’s forthcoming new single, La Musica. Released just before X-MAs, the single also boast work from the likes of Kenny Hectyc and Magic Touch; but it’s the mOUse mix that dominates the release. This one is huge and hypnotic.
While the core of this tune is undoubtedly MiGHty mOUse’s throbbing, bass heavy, retro-futuristic Disco, he weaves a few threads of mesmerising electronics throughout the track. Pulsating Techno and mind-bending Dub vibes both put in an appearance as the tune expands on it’s vintage Disco in spacey ways. Alongside the hammerfall House piano and infectious walking bass you’ll fine magical echo effects and LFO heavy synths giving the tune a roomy, evolving feel. Excellent, and intoxicating, stuff from the mOUse man.

Achilles & One’s La Musica is released 22nd December.
Well, we’ve been waiting for this for what feels like an eternity. The mighty MiGHty mOUse and the also mighty Ronika. A match made in mirrorball heaven. Even before we we’re told that this was happening we pretty much just assumed it would sooner or later, and now it has in the form of See Through You, the new MiGHty mOUse single set to drop at the beginning of next month. Strap in, this is gonna’ get wild.
MiGHty mOUse brings his Balearic, Cosmic, infectious Disco A-game here with a killer bassline and a funkin;’ beat. What’s really interesting about See Through You, is that alongside the shimmering Disco groove, there a bit of a Post-Punk vibe going on, in a similar way to the whole post-DFA New York scene but with a distinctly British twist. That bassline warps around synth horns, electronic stabs and huge rushes of vintage dancefloor strings while Ronika shimmies over the track with an effortless cool. A glorious homebrew take on shiny Disco-Punk, See Through You is set to be the sound of the holidays, around here at least.

MiGHty mOUse’s See Through You is released 1st December.
Fresh out the oven; here’s the latest monster from floorfilling renaissance man MiGHty mOUse. Following on from his recent Shaker Faker/Space Face single of earlier this year, That Piano Track, continues the MiGHty mOUse trend of throwing a whole bunch of dance music genres into a blender and generating something awesome and fresh. Put together primarily for his DJ sets, the mOUse man felt this one was too good to be kept to himself. We tend to agree.
There’s just so much more personality in MiGHty mOUse’s tunes than many of his contemporaries. Never following a formula he always delivers something that’s completely in-tune with the dancefloor but with a heap of added quirkiness; That Piano Track is no exception. With frantic purcussion and a groove that effortlessly slides from light piano hooked House to sub rumbling Bass; this one will definitely keep the crowd locked in. Enjoy.
UK Disco don MiGHty mOUse is back in business with this tasty reMix of Mason’s Gotta’ Have You Back. The Dutch duo’s new single features vocal work from Hercules And Love Affair collaborator Rouge Mary and is itself a pounding Electro stormer with soul. Listen to MiGHty mOUse groove the track up right nice below while you marvel at just how much Mason enjoy their little cartoon monsters.
Given such a musically tough track to work with, MiGHty mOUse keeps some of that abrasive grind in his reMix. A departure from his typical spaced out Disco goodness, the man flexes his Electro-House muscles with a gritty bassline and a sidechained pump. But don’t think for one minute that means the Disco has left the room, MiGHty mOUse keeps things 100% funky and utterly infectious. MiGHty mOUse will be announcing his new single soon, featuring one of his “favourite vocalists” which, if it’s what we think it is, is flipping awesome! Trust us.

Nearly a year on from it’s unveiling, Du Tonc’s Surging Memories is on the way to a full release, reMix package and all! The international duo of MiGHty mOUse and Matt Van Schie have picked one of their finest tracks for this, their first proper big release and amongst the luminaries chosen for reMix duties is Belgian synthesizer champion ATTAR!. Check out his version below.
As expected ATTAR! takes the track in a more robotic direction, but the man manages to leave the tracks soul intact. The laid back nature of the track allows ATTAR! to indulge in some heady Vangelis synths set to a warping sub bass. It’s a combination that has to be enjoyed loud. Taking his time to deliver the beat, ATTAR! builds the Sci-Fi mood before injecting a little Tropical sweetness into proceedings and making those cold dystopian tones get funky. Matt’s vocals glide over the track like they are looking down on the groove from on high. The whole thing is rather epic we think.
♫ Du Tonc – Surging Memories (ATTAR! reMix)
Du Tonc’s Surging Memories is released 23rd June via Nightfilm.
Out this week on the mighty On The Fruit Records is the début record from Turkish Duo Paradisko. Already getting a heap of support; the track, the product of the pairing of Thousand Fingers & Hemi, comes complete with a packed reMix package featuring the likes of Xinobi, Digits and Cosmic Disco master MiGHty mOUse.
This one’s all about that utterly infectious synth bass. Funky as all hell, the bassline works it’s way into your head and effects your feet. It’s as playful as it is relentlessly groovy, a head on collision of Italo and Nu-Disco, this robo-Boogie is bound to stay on repeat for a long time to come. MiGHty mOUse’s take on the tune is a slow builder, taking it;s time to layer intricate purcussion and rich pads until it reaches a point where it morphs into a UK House monster that owes as much to early 90s Bleep House as it does to today’s dancefloors. The mOUse delivers a nice mix of ominous bass and light Disco synths with dancefloor destroying precision. It;s an awesome collection of track you definitely need to be checking out.
One of the nice things about two talents like MiGHty mOUse and Matt Van Schie working together is that you get a wealth of influences and interests brought to the table. The backgrounds of the Du Tonc members set themselves up for a nice ecclectic mix of tunes that can effortlessly span Nu-Disco and Indie-Electro encompassing the best of both.
As displayed here with their latest offering, a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s I’m On Fire. Wielding an easy groove, the twosome deliver a slo-mo Disco churner that was, fittingly, given birth when the song cam on the radio is they drove through Arizona. With chirpy synths and a warm bassline complimenting Matt’s gentle vocal, the track ends up sounding rather cinematic and conjuring up images of the road trip that inspired it.
Here is part two of MiGHty mOUse’s new double A-side single. Shaker Faker got it’s groove on last week so now it’s Space Face’s turn in the spotlight. As with the previous track MiGHty mOUse and his label, Nightfilm, have been kind enough to give the track away. All in celebration of his forthcoming Australian tour; dates here.
Space Face keeps the Cosmic Disco vibes going with an infectious Piano House injection. The piano hook gets a real hypnotic flavour cooking over a solid Disco beat, it’s a slow builder but when the track kicks in it’s got all the galactic flair of an entrancing floorfilling monster. No wonder the likes of Tensnake are already giving it their support. Proper Disco euphoria.
