This week London’s king of groove MiGHty mOUse releases his new EP. The long awaited follow up to 2010’s ‘Disco Battle Weapons’, the cunningly titled ‘Disco Battle Weapons (Volume 2)’ is a return to straight up cosmic Disco after all that mucking around with being a Pop band (and releasing one of our favourite tunes of 2011). MiGHty mOUse has already had an amazing year with his ‘Disco Circus’ mix selling like hotcakes, but now it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty and bust out some space age Disco as only MM can.
It’s hard for us to pick out favourite track on the EP, it’s a toss-up between ‘Moments In Space’ and ‘Rocket’. ‘Moments’ is a galactic journey made audio, a SciFi story for the dancefloor. Raw beats and otherworldly arpeggios weave in and out of the track while you mind id dominated by a piercing alien melody. Intricately crafted and immediately infectious, ‘Moments’ is a new tough, cosmic Disco MiGHty mOUse, and we love it. ‘Rocket’ is the spiritual descendant of Herbie Hancock’s classic of the same (well, similar) name, and it models itself on the same era of electronic Funk and Disco whilst never moving one foot from the harder dancefloors of today. A growling bassline and a nod to B-Boy Electro is all we need. ‘Kid In Space’ is the brightest track on the EP, a cute robotic melody loops around this tune, which is just the ticket for livening up the dancefloor. The hypnotic lead line and bass give the track room to play around with percussion and LFOs, who are the real starts of the track. ‘Electric Moonshine’ seems to be the big, classic Nu-Disco, offering from the EP, but the inclusion of slightly staccato Violin give this track a complete uniqueness. Couple that with a huge, emotion breakdown, and MiGHty mOUse new retro future groove and you’ve got the track that’ll be killing the clubs in the coming months. ‘Disco Battle Weapons (Volume 2)’ is a very welcome return to original track for MiGHty mOUse, and one that’s going to be on repeat ‘round these parts for a while.
