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.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
