From Cobra Man to Mikey Lion

Also this week:

Print star Alison Goldfrapp told us that, “I took a little sabbatical after (Silver Eye), I felt like I needed some time out to think about what I wanted to do next. Take a little check on where I was at in my life, personally, musically, creatively – and then the pandemic happened. But it was a really interesting time for me. I got my mojo back with music and felt like I had room to grow. But during the pandemic, I got a studio happening at home. That was a really interesting time for me because it kinda allowed me to investigate some things creatively and musically. I really wanted to work with some new people. So I reached out to Röyksopp who were very up for it. That was a really fun thing to do. Then I kinda thought, I want to carry on and do more writing. So yeah, I reached out to James Greenwood and then Richard X. So it just grew quite naturally really. Initially, I just thought  I’ll do an EP. No pressure, five tracks, easy. A nice little introduction back into things. And then it grew into this album. So here I am.”

In “Not Another DJ,” Mikey Lion said, “I play a range of music in between house, deep house, tech house, and techno, but I’d say my sound is closest to tech house. My sets often include music that is high energy with a tough attitude, but also contain tracks that are groovy, funky, and make people feel good. I don’t take my music too seriously. The more the crowd is smiling during one of my sets, the better as my goal is to uplift people with love and positivity through my music and vibe.”
