Red Moon "Lucky / Make A Move"

Out Now on Surround Sounds

Red Moon aka Nottingham duo Roger Watson and Tony Thomas are no strangers to the music scene, with Roger under his DJ Hal playing the Tyrant night alongside Lee Burridge and Craig Richards on regular basis, and Tony Thomas having been releasing material in the underground dance scene for over 10 years on labels such as Soma, End Recordings, Logic, Eukatech and more recently the duo had a track called Bates Motel featured on Renaissance's Underground Sounds Of Renaissance EP under the guise of The A.G.E, but now they deliver their fourth single as Red Moon with the AA side Lucky / Make A Move, taken from the forthcoming album 'Lucky'.

Lucky starts off with the sound of hazy summer evening crickets before descending into a deep percussive groove that swirls along subtly, dripping fx sprinkled onto the beats as fx samples are woven in and out of the soundscape, giving the track a very trippy, hypnotic feel.

Meanwhile Make A Move is faster paced, with a cut up disco influenced vocal in the build and deep male vocoderd samples punching through the driving percussion.

Two sublime cuts to preceed the album, which will no doubt be a huge success for Surround Sounds, a label that seems to be making more and more waves in the techier end of the scene.
