Mighty Mouse – If I & In Front Of Friends

Recent Human Drizzle Presents alumnus Mighty Mouse has been a busy boy recently. Today two pieces emerged from the disco wizard: the first a remix of Villa‘s ‘If I’ and the second an original collaboration with Monarchy entitled ‘In Front of Friends’.

The original version of ‘If I’ by Belgian duo Villa is a moody piece of guitar-led, slow-paced disco. Mighty Mouse has sped things up and given the track a little more bounce, and the results are very pleasing indeed. It’s a head-nodder, and that’s that.

The other track to emerge from MM today is ‘In Front of Friends’. Full of vocal harmonies and jaunty brass, ‘In Front of Friends’ is the tale of a man embarrassed by a public declaration of love, and it’s a jaunty pop record that may be just the distraction you need as winter closes in.

Human Drizzle Presents…Mighty Mouse, Clancy & Black Magic Disco @ Peckham Palais

Human_Drizzle_flyer_print (1) - CopyAnd the Met Office reckon St Jude was the biggest thing hitting the South-East this week…

Human Drizzle Presents is now a little over 48 hours away. With thunderous looking House, Garage and Disco clouds gathering over SE15, we’ve been extremely busy battening down the hatches, buying supplies and getting the Peckham Palais equipped for you to come and take shelter.

Time is running out for you to reserve your space…so get to it!

Firstly, we have a trio of top DJs to help you through the driving rain and flying garden furniture. We are delighted to welcome Mighty Mouse to Peckham as he makes his Human Drizzle Presents debut. So many great tracks and remixes to be found on his Soundcloud that will warm your cockles and get you in the mood for Friday. Here are a couple we’ve cherry-picked for you…

Our old mucker and Human Drizzle Presents veteran – this is his second appearance – Clancy brings his growing reputation to the Palais. Long-term readers of Human Drizzle will know our affection for Clancy, and it’s hard for us to limit our favourite tracks of his. We’ll go with…

Finally, all the way from a land down under, we welcome the scorching hot Black Magic Disco. The man himself is almost as excited about his performance at Human Drizzle Presents as we are. So much so he has kindly done a mix for us to showcase his skills and get us all buzzing for this Friday. We’re positively vibing off his enthusiasm.

We also introduce newcomer and friend of Human Drizzle, Hot Karl. He’ll be spinning some ‘funky, funky, funky house beats’ for us before the pros take over.

Early bird tickets have now sold out. £7 tickets are available until 6pm on Friday – get them here. If you still haven’t got one by that point, there will be some for a tenner on the door.

We’ve literally thought of everything, so come in from the cold and join us on Friday. We can’t wait to see you all there.

Human Drizzle presents…Mighty Mouse, Clancy & Black Magic Disco @ Peckham Palais

Human_Drizzle_flyer_print (1) - Copy

Anticipation at HD HQ for our last party of the year is bubbling up very nicely. In just over two weeks time, we will be welcoming not one, not two, not even three, but four of our favourite DJs to South London’s Peckham Palais. We have Mighty Mouse, Clancy, Black Magic Disco and Hot Karl playing some records for your dancing delectation on Friday 1st November.

Tickets are currently a steal at £5 a pop, so grab ‘em now from the link below, and tell all your mates over here.

THE LINE-UP…

As regular readers of HD will know, we’ve been big fans of Mighty Mouse since day one. Over the past few years he’s carved out an excellent reputation for penning feel-good disco house tunes, and we cannot wait to have him headline proceedings on 1st November. Here’s a taster:

Besides his original work, he’s started a compilation series entitled ‘Disco Circus’, has released a string of consistently good mixtapes and been responsible for countless remixes. More recently however, he has formed Du Tonc with Matt Van Schie from Van She. They’ve released one mixtape and written four excellent original tracks, all released on their own label Night Film. ‘Darkness’ could quite possibly be our pop tune of the year. We are stoked to have him playing.

Next up we have Human Drizzle Presents alumnus Clancy. Having totally smashed it at the Bussey Building for our party back in April, we thought we’d get the budding London via Manchester producer back for another slot. He’s released a long list of free-to-download tunes before being recruited by Dirt Crew Recordings to put out his debut EP on their new imprint S P I E L. He’s going from strength to strength.

We also welcome Black Magic Disco all the way from Australia. Having had releases on Toolroom Records and Pole Position Records, he makes 90s garage and house-infused tracks which should be perfect for Peckham’s former department store. He’s known to compile quite the mixtape too, have a listen:

Warming up proceedings from 10pm will be the enigmatic newcomer, Hot Karl.

There’s a whole load of fun to be had. Bag your ticket now and come join us.

Friday 1st November, 10pm – 5am, Peckham Palais.

Mighty Mouse – Feel Alright

When Mighty Mouse is not busy teaming up with Matt from Van She to make music under the Du Tonc moniker, he’s working on the newly-formed Nightfilm record label to release the music they create. And when he’s not busy doing that, he’s writing music back as Mighty Mouse to celebrate the launch of said label. ‘Feel Alright’ is five and a half minutes of feel-good disco music, a wonderfully perky soundtrack to your Friday. Download it for free here.

Mighty Mouse – Electric Moonshine

Occupying similar territory, both musically and geographically, to HD favourites like Cosmonauts and Tronik Youth, London-based Mighty Mouse has been producing brilliant cosmic disco for some time now. Free monthly mixes in the Aeroplane mould have been a pleasure (June’s is particularly excellent), and this month also sees the release of the EP, ‘Disco Battle Weapons (Vol. 2)’.

Our favourite track from said EP is ‘Electric Moonshine’, a handsome piece of spaced out nu-disco with a lovely combination of Pjanoo-esque keys, stabbed strings, and gentle percussion. All in all, it’s a blissed-out piece of dance music tailor made for summer.

Du Tonc – Surging Memories (Remixes)

Lovely to see Du Tonc’s feel-good hit ‘Surging Memories’ resurface as the duo comprised of Mighty Mouse and Matt Van Schie are releasing a bunch of remixes for the track.

First up is a breezy and piano-laden rework from the Belgian producer Attar! Second in line is Kiwi. The recent signing to Duke Dumont’s Blasé Boys Club is everywhere at the moment*, and as with most of his tunes, there’s a gradual progression to this effort that’s sure to go down well.

You will be able to buy these come 23rd June, along with other efforts from Le Visiteur and Adapt Or Die. For the Londoners amongst you, you may want to put Friday 22nd August in the diary too. Du Tonc are playing a DJ set alongside Moonboots and Lancelot at The Nest, definitely one to consider.

*If you were for some reason not watching the footy on Saturday night – the South London producer hosted his first show on Rinse FM. Definitely worth a listen:

As tradition on these pages at the start of the month, we’ve compiled all our featured music from the last 30 onto one playlist.

There are some corkers in there. From Sam Smith’s new belter, to newbies from Chris Malinchak, Flight Facilities and Todd Terje. More disco from Skream, a mixmag premiere from HD Presents alumnus Mighty Mouse and a stand-out from our new favourite West Country three-piece, Panda.

As usual – let us your know your thoughts. We’re eagerly awaiting your suggestions over on Twitter, come give us a shout.

Now, the music:

Human Drizzle Presents @ Peckham Palais

With the chapter now closed on the fourth instalment of Human Drizzle Presents, we’d like to say a massive thank you to all those who came down to the glamorous Peckham Palais on Friday night. Massive props to Clancy, Mighty Mouse, Black Magic Disco and newcomer Hot Karl, who kept the dancefloor jumping all night with banger after banger.

The list really is endless but Black Magic Disco’s garage-infused set was finished superbly with the above excellent Friend Within remix of Fatboy Slim’s classic. Mighty Mouse kept the momentum going with two hours jam-packed with feel-good tones, paving the way very nicely for Clancy to take things an incy bit deeper before the close of play. The epic piano house of Kolsch’s ‘Der Alte’ is still ringing in our ears:

Check out the first photos below (courtesy of the excellent Associated Luminosity) and keep your eye on our Facebook page for the full set. That was the last Human Drizzle Presents of 2013, but fear not. Plans are already coming together for our next night – a post-January pick-me-up/pre-Valentine’s Day blow-out on Friday 7th February 2014.

Du Tonc – Rise

We’ve told you once, we’ve told you twice, and so we’ll tell you thrice.

Du Tonc, the side project from Mighty Mouse and Matt Van Schie from Van She, are ones to follow. They have struck a lovely chord again with ‘Rise’. It’s their third single to date and is a catchy, sweeping disco track that’s going to be released on their own label Nightfilm. For a limited time only however, it’s yours for free here. Catch them on both sides of the pond over the summer on their mammoth tour; see their website for details.
