Secret In The Dark (Juan Maclean edit)
DFA disco magic
Greek musician Monika has had two well-received albums released in her home country. For album three, she moved to an international focus with a release on Other Music Recording Co, which was released in October.
The title track ‘Secret In The Dark’ is a groovy old-school disco shaker recorded at the Daptone-renowned Dunham Sounds Studios (Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Dan Auerbach) and produced by Dap-Kings & Menahan Street Band founding member Homer Steinweiss.
No wonder DFA Records’ Juan Maclean gave it an edit fix for the dancefloor, the song sounds like something James Murphy would be all over. It’s the vocals that get ya.
Fervent Danish R&B/pop.
A few singles deep and this Copenhagen band are really starting to establish themselves. ‘Colder’ has a Jai-Paul-style chorus but is soft on the outside. Their debut EP is streaming.
