In for this Weekend's Mixtape is, Morgan Page!
Page has certainly come a long way since his early days in Vermont. On his third full-length album, In The Air, (due October 2011), the Los Angeles-based artist strikes a brilliant balance between kinetic house music and blissful, radio-ready pop. Touting club anthems with the right dose of indie and pop flourishes, Page creates a danceable, diverse, and deep collection of songs.
While on the road, Page began creating his collection and gathered an all-star cast of guests to appear on these original tracks. The featured artists include Tegan & Sara on "Body Work" and "Video," Jonathan Mendelsohn and Andy Caldwell on "Where Did You Go?" Greg Laswell on "Addicted", and a powerhouse combination of BT, Sultan, and Ned Shepard and Angela McCluskey (Télépopmusik) on the record's first single "In the Air." The lead track rises from an elegantly enticing electro haze into an infectious hook, moving from progressive house into propulsive pop.
Page remains a powerful presence in the electronic music scene. He got the blogosphere chattering with 2005's collection of bootleg remixes, Cease And Desist and started to make a name for himself.
In 2008, he dropped his formal debut Elevate, which spawned one of his biggest hits to date "The Longest Road" featuring songstress, Lissie. The Deadmau5 remix of the track was nominated for a Grammy (Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical) in 2009. His sophomore effort, 2010's Believe, saw him continue to garner even more critical and fan acclaim.
Page says, "This record exists between the club and pop worlds with a little bit of indie thrown in there as well. I wanted to try some new flavors and attitudes, while keeping my sound intact. At the end of the day, it's really about the song. I want to make sure these songs stick in your head. While I was working on the album, I had the chance to road-test a lot of this material, and it was effective for the dance floor."
This album is ultimately for the listeners, and it'll get them humming and dancing. "I want people to play it over and over again," concludes Page. "I want them to sing these songs back to me when I'm playing live. I want to make music that lasts."
