We are very proud to announce our very first tour presented with Archery Club for house/disco connoisseur Perseus’
“Disco never dies, but the crowd pleasing nu-disco sound of the past three years has officially been silenced as 2011′s balls dropped.”
Leon Oziel has always had a great eye for talent. During his days as a reviewer for Discodust, he helped spotlight the likes of Ellie Goulding, Disclosure and some duo called umm, errrr… Azari & III! So it comes as no surprise that three years on Oziel is not only the head-honcho of tastemaker imprint FRENCH EXPRESS (home to the likes of Moon Boots, Chris Malinchak, Jonas Rathsman), but also universally famous for his exploits as future-house and tropical-disco wizard PERSEUS.
Bursting into our consciousness (and every worthy blog) in early 2011 via a mesmerizing re-take of Jeremy Glenn’s ‘New Life’ (Future Classic), Perseus went on to re-craft the Mark Ronson smash Record Collection. It sounds like Mark was pretty happy with his effort…
@iamMarkRonson: this @perseus remix of “record collection” is so beautiful, i could cry. art of noise meets loose ends.
Going from strength to strength, Perseus celebrated the new year by giving away the delicious Russian Girlfriends EP… with a gargantuan response. Cool Runnings, Russian Girlfriends and the Ashanti-sampling Running Back To You, having been previously premiered on The Magician’s Magic Tapes (#15, #17, #18), have between them notched up a lazy 60,000 plays… and counting.
Perseus, who last week proclaimed “it’s a very healthy time for music” (Dazed), will embark on his first ever voyage ‘down-under’ and be performing headline shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney this Autumn.
Melbourne – Thursday March 29th, 2012 Onesixone, Melbourne
Brisbane – Saturday March 31st, 2012 The Bowler Bar, Brisbane
