Moullinex – Love Magnetic EP
Following the huge success of Moullinex remix for Royksopp & Robyn’ “Do It Again”, he’s back with a brand new single “Love Magnetic”, on Gomma. It is the producer’s first new material since the “Flora” album at the end of 2012, whilst his next artist album is also in the making.
Moullinex is a DJ and producer from Portugal, who has been closely related to Gomma for the past four years. He has an innate ability to fuse together myriad musical influences and that lends his productions a rich vein of musicality and originality. He is also the co-owner of the much lauded Discotexas label.
First up, ‘Love Magnetic’ is a summer party anthem that will be enjoyed by everybody who hasn’t fallen or already fell in love with the Moullinex sound. A heavy bassline. A straight beat. Some jazz chords and Luis Clara Gomes’ inimitable sweet and deep singing… what more could you need to make for a huge summer smash? Nothing, that’s what.
The flipside ‘Time and Tide’ is disco going psychedelic. Made up of nicely roughshod percussive rattles and cute little synth blasts to start, it soon gets beefed up by some heavy kicks. Grubby synth lines then come in from down low, as melodies begin to shine up top. After an epic and spine tingling breakdown at the mid point, complete with 80s sounding tinkles on the Casio, things drop once more and surge off into dazzling disco territory.
These are two straight up jams that more than whet the appetite for the forthcoming Moullinex album and will surely win the man many more fans in the process.
Out now on Gomma. Get it here.
