In the tradition of multi-genre classic dance albums of the past (eg Groove Armada, Basement Jaxx) Southlight’s debut album reflects their eclectic influences, writing and production skills - from house and disco to techno and electronica.
After releasing singles for 5 years on various record labels, Southlight decided to create a full album - a body of work that best sums up the creative vision of the two Tasmanian-based producers. A vision of beautifully crafted beats that energises and engages clubbers and listeners alike.
The opening track “I’m Feeling” makes a brassy bold statement and sets the scene for a genre-blending album. Other stand-out tracks include:
a cover version of the Al Green classic, “Love & Happiness” featuring Red London (aka Australia’s Reigan Derry)
the critically acclaimed “You + I” - with an outstanding vocal performance from Nathan Mahon
the moody, tech house floor-filler “Dance boy”, and
the Balearic, synth laden “Outrunning”
Our Southlight Remix of "New Sky" by Rufus Du Sol brings nu disco/indie dance vibes to the original.
"I’m Feeling" is a thumping, joyful, brass-filled house track and is the second single from our upcoming album. Featuring soulful vocal lines, orchestral brass stabs, and punchy electronic arps, "I'm Feeling" pays homage to past disco nights while looking to a bright electronic future.
The remix EP of "Love and Happiness" (feat Red London) the remix EP features a late night techno remix by Melbourne's Mike Callander and, for something completely different, a beach house sax-infused remix by Dubai producer, Shaun Warner.
"Love and Happiness" is a soulful electronic powerhouse of a track featuring the soaring vocals of Red London, a pumping bass line and dancing arps. Love and Happiness turns a classic track into a 21st century dance floor event.
