Could this be Australian pop’s knight in shining armour? From what we’ve been told by his management team, Melbourne producer Mike Gamwell (AKA Knightlife) is somewhat of an enigma… a so-called “mysterious beat-maker” who has, in the past, been responsible for whipping up remixes for some of the biggest in the local dance music business.
Since being snapped up to Cut Copy’s label Cutters Records, the producer has been working feverishly on the tunes that will ultimately form his 2013 debut long player. But in the meantime, it’s time to roll out the red carpet for the single ‘Without Love’.
There’s certainly a taste of the ’80s about this track too. Retro samples and disco beats, with a simple female vocal (by ‘AP’!?) layered over the top. So if you like your dance/pop a little retro, a little now and perhaps a little ‘what will be’, we get a feeling you’ll love the Knightlife too.
