Moony – Heavy / VIP (single) (self-released)
Amidst the plethora of great stuff scheduled for release in May (including Eno + Hyde, and Röyksopp & Robyn), Heavy, the new single from Brighton DJ/Producer, Moony grabbed our attention in a massive way.
No stranger to bass music and its various forms, everything Moony has produced to date has been gold (check out his Soundcloud) and on his new track Heavy Moony takes us back to yesteryear.
Heavy is a monster 2-step UK garage tune, which sends a nod to the kind of songcraft, styling, and impeccable production skills we heard from Artful Dodger at the top of the millennium.
The song’s soulful, cut-up vocals immediately implant this tune into your brain, and when combined with the 2-step beats, Heavy is irresistible.
The massive, grime-y bass around 1:30, along with the percussive keys and rich strings around 2:20, add a twist and a darkness. What a tune!
The single also includes a energized, four-to-the-floor ‘VIP’ grime remix.
Heavy was released digitally on 2 May, 2014 and is available via Bandcamp now.
