Good music to fight the bad times. House favourite Purple Disco Machine reveal a funk-heavy remix of ‘Mont Blanc’, the latest release from Mind Enterprises. The original version of the track was released last week and has already received support from Pete Tong, Erick Morillo, Guy Mantzur, Adana Twins and LUXXURY.
Mind Enterprises will headline London’s The Victoria on 1 May as well as taking to the road to join indie-electronic band Confidence Man on their huge and highly anticipated tour this spring.
Drawing from the synth-powered Italo that defined the era, ‘Mont Blanc’ is fuelled by groovy, disco-adjacent basslines, spellbinding drum patterns and cosmic odysseys that traverse continents. It follows the release of his razor-sharp EP ‘Panorama’ in November last year, and further hones in on his intoxicating new sound that represents a more spontaneous approach to songwriting.
Mind Enterprises said: “The question that inspired me working on ‘Mont Blanc’: what if Kraftwerk wrote one more song for their great Trans-Europe Express LP, but they made it disco?”
Mind Enterprises is the aesthetic universe and musical dreamworld of Turin-raised producer Andrea Tirone. Born in 1985, Tirone perceives his ever-growing collection of vintage synthesisers like a “palette of colours”, or an orchestra of performers. “Every single machine has a distinctive sound that is exclusively the sound of that machine”, he says, describing the charity shops in his new home of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria as “heaven”, and noting how he has bought “a few things for really stupid prices”
The live universe of Mind Enterprises is just as colourful and larger-than-life as his songs and videos, featuring an abundance of analogue synthesisers and pastel shell-suits. Mind Enterprises is currently working on a new album that gleans influences from ‘80s Italo greats like Kano and is lightly tempered with the pulse of 90s dance-pop’ – due to be released later this year.
