There’s no denying it… the new Mind Electric single ‘Sweet Escape’ is what they call in the business a bonafide “banger”.
House lovers everywhere will be packing dancefloors to this one, which harks back to the heady days of house from the mid 2000s.
It combines some massive production courtesy of WA’s Mind Electric and powerful diva vocals from Melbourne’s Kylie Auldist; the collaboration completely remotely at the height of last year’s lockdown in the Victorian capital.
“I recorded my vocals in Melbourne at One Bakehouse Studios, and at the very last minute, I sent a couple of vocal corrections from Melbourne to Perth that I had recorded on my phone inside a wardrobe,” Kylie reveals. “I think it’s turned out beautifully, almost like a patchwork quilt. Amazing what you can do in lockdown.”
It was the lockdown and the subsequent shuttering of dancefloors across the nation that inspired the song.
“I was inspired to create a record aimed towards the listeners at home and to bring some happiness and sunshine in the dark times,” Mind Electric adds.
And aren’t we glad he did; the result is completely splendid. And worthy of your energy, sweat and blistered soles now that dancefloors are once again coming to life.
