MOSEY "Tuff Times" FUTURE TIMES HOUSE TECHNO 12"
Newcomer Mosey drops a beautiful debut for Future Times!! The three tracks on the EP have an intangible, melancholy lift to them, primed for fans of lovers rock techno and 16-Bit new wave.
"Tuff Times" is a perfect nu-romantic piece of dance music, a simple straight line of emotional resonance that makes you wanna look up at the lights and zone. With a sound bank somewhere between PPU garage love, Sega Genesis, and glossy-eyed techno, the entire EP comes correct for the sweethearts. "TC Midi Labs", the B-Side opener, is an awesome Sakamoto-style display of abstracted synthetic flourish, perfect between two songs for the DJ knuckleheads out there, and even more perfect for home zoners. B2 cut "Live A Little" closes it out, sounding like Section 25 distilled to a simple, elegant essence.
Philip Sherburne (The Wire/Pitchfork):
"Fuckin' A, instant top 10 of the month action right here. "Tuff Times" and "Live a Little" are both brilliant, and "TC Midi Labs"? Insane. Now excuse me while I duck out to get a "lovers rock techno" tattoo."
