British producer Mickey Moonlight has recently released his debut full-length album The Time Axis Manipulation Corporation, which features the synth-heavy "Close to Everything," which Moonlight premiered on an earlier EP.

While his album has garnered support from DJs all over the world, it was important to Mickey Moonlight that the release was accessible enough to play at home. "'Close to Everything' is one of two songs on the album featuring the amazing George Lewis, Jr., a.k.a. Twin Shadow. This is the closest to the dancefloor that the album ventures. It was important to me that the songs were for home listening, not clubs," he says.

Random Notes

"Close to Everything" got its vibe from the guest star. "I love George's soulful and impassioned vocals. To me the song could be about non-local correlation and the quantum interconnectivity of all matter throughout all time-space," Mickey says.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
