Portuguese artist Moullinex released his third album Hypersex in October 2017 and has been on the road bringing that funk and disco to dancefloors. He is ready to release his first single since the release of tomorrow via Majestic Casual Records titled “Dream On” and we have the premiere for you today.
Moullinex can churn out some funky, disco jams, but then also tone things back for subtler, more soothing electronic records. “Dream On” fits into the later category and the title fits aptly with the song.
It is still danceable, but instead of you furiously shuffling like you might to his other records, a slow swaying may be in order to the soft percussion, gentle synths, fluttering arps and soft vocals telling to “dream on” as you close your eyes and get lost in your own thoughts. If you are somewhere comfortable, just lie back and enjoy this three minutes and 39 seconds of bliss. The only complaint is that it isn’t longer.
An artist in a happy place could have only made this and Moullinex explains his state of mind.
“’Dream On’ was made almost entirely on a train trip I took right after a show. I was high on endorphins from a beautiful night where I did a DJ set in just the right place, with the right crowd, and imagined a track I would love to play should this ideal setting occur again,” Moullinex explains to Magnetic. “Being used to having all sorts of instruments around in the studio, the self-imposed restriction of having to work with that fleeing harp sample dictated its dreamy direction.”
The single will be released tomorrow, May 25 via Majestic Casual Records. Until then, stream it below and check out our interview with him.
