The power duo, Du Tonc, made up of Matt Van Schie (of Van She fame) and Mighty Mouse, have announced their sophomore single, “Surging Memories,” today, following up their extolled debut “Darkness,” which my good friend aRod spoke about a few months ago. It’s a melodic, vocal masterpiece, driven by Van Schie’s soothing voice with live guitar, drums, and, of course, synthesizers. Du Tonc seems to be a match made in heaven, and we’re excited for their debut tour here in the US this summer. Listen below and find tour schedule after the jump. √+
This is big! Today we bring you a hat trick worth of goodies from our main man Mighty Mouse. First up is Mighty Mouse’s brand new remix of “Love of a Life” by Keljet (feat. X Ambassadors). The ingredients of this tasty treat include a dash of squelchy disco mixed with a big scoop of throwback house all served up and ready to be devoured on the dance floor. And On The Fruit Records is giving this one away as a free tasting…
Du Tonc = Mighty Mouse + Matt Van Schie (of Van She). It’s a formula that any disco or indie lover can immediately get excited about. Whether it’s Mighty Mouse giving you a lesson in disco diversity on one of his many remixes or Van She blowing your indie mind at a live show, this pairing of musical minds is a fantastic one. Somewhat surprisingly, Du Tonc takes a slightly different approach on their first track together. While their indie & disco influences can be heard on their new track “Darkness”, it’s a poppier sound that Du Tonc seem to have embraced. The result is a crooning & swooning slice of pop music brilliance. Not too light, not too dark. Not too heavy, not too laid back. Chugging along at the perfect pace, “Darkness” is the kind of stunning pop music you can listen to over and over. Well done, boys.
It’s been a journey. Since its inception in the summer of 2010, our longest lasting weekly feature, The Dirt, has brought a staggering amount of free music to the masses, and we’re proud to still be here 100 editions and 100 Dirt Babes in the books. It’s a tough feat to get these tracks together each week (probably why we have some gaps in the mix here and there, apologies), but it’s been an amazing experience sharing music with all of you, which, of course, is the main reason why we’re here.
We wanted to put together something special for the centennial episode, so 11 of our writers have included 2 songs each — one from one of the 99 past Dirts that we’ve posted and any other song that we felt was exceptional enough to make the cut of such an outstanding post. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed putting them together. Here’s to another 100. Continue Reading
