Some of Mickey Moonlight’s songs remind me of a 1970s children’s television program while others would make the perfect soundtrack for a party in some 80s space station. There’s all kinds of distorted trippy sound effects, funky sax solos, vocoders, playful lyrics, and a pleasantly familiar disco beat. I caught on to Moonlight back in 2008 when I heard his revamp of Sun-Ra’s Interplanetary Music (originally from Visits Planet Earth/ Intersteller Low Ways) – and it was instant love. He’s one of the smoother Ed Banger babies who definitely gets an A for originality and for his kitschy taste.
Below are some previews of Moonlight’s new EP Love Pattern as well as a remix of his first single.
