Michael by Mickey Pearce - Swamp 81 [SWAMPLP003] FLAC download included with physical items


A 11 track house album (32m 21s) — released June 24th 2016 on Swamp 81

Last summer, four years after Loefah first floated the idea of a Mickey Pearce album, Mickey sat down to write a mixtape of loops - a sequel to 2014's 'Up West' - but found himself in new, melancholic territory.

Less than three months later 'Michael' was written.

Ahead of the radio premiere of 'August', Mickey told Mary Anne Hobbs: "The whole album was written in a short space of time last summer... [it] just sounds like me in August 2015. I haven't written anything that sounds like it before or since."

Mickey has also developed a new live show that translates the album for the club environment. The live performance follows the arc of the record, adding layers of improvisation and a solid core of drums that place it in a club context.

Road-tested at 81 sessions in Berlin, Leeds and London, Mickey debuted the full live at Peckham Rye Music Festival earlier this month.
