Mason have provided the perfect ammunition for a White Islevibe with this Italo-disco tinged collaboration featuring singer/songwriter Matt Hales AKA ‘Aqualung’. Aqualung’s‘Strange and Beautiful’ was a huge top 10 hit in the UK back in 2002 and thishuge talent, now based in L.A. continues to write gorgeous and intimate songs.
Mason retain the intimacy and simplicity of Aqualung’slanguid vocals with a nicely rocking salute to Georgio Moroder in theiroriginal version taken from their current album ‘They Are Among Us’.
On the Little Angel video produced by award winner director, Nicholas Peterson, Mason said: “We can’t believe how many hours must have gone into realizing this video, and we love how it keeps the intimacy of the song. Lot of props to Nick Peterson.”
‘Little Angel’ has been remixed into thesublime by Robert Babicz whotakes an acid house inspired bassline and adds his own guitar and atmosphericsto create a sun tinted tech house beauty. RexThe Dog provides his signature left of centre dance floor vibe with amedium paced retro re-working with lovely squelchy 80’s arpeggiators and aguitar break straight out of the Top Gun soundtrack. Belgium’s Kolombo makes an equally emotivetreatment adding a big wobbly groove and a few buckets of acid to thisbeautiful song.
No Animal Language release is completewithout its ‘Refurb’ and this onecomes in the shape of classic Elevator Muzak. With plenty of panpipes and fauxstrings this is like taking a ride in the elevator of a 70’s department store.
