The long awaited debut release from Melbourne based producer / personality Mousse is here! Until now, Mousse aka Simon Barry has kept his craft close to his chest and we finally hear the result of years of hard studio labour in the bungalow. Barry has been a crucial part of Melbourne’s dance community for the past five or so years, co-hosting the legendary disco party ‘Misty Nights’ with Danny Hotep as well being a fixture at The House De Frost and Animals Dancing parties.
On the A side we have the anthemic ‘Sex and Acid’ and ‘Big Fat Party Popper’ two raw house tracks with links to early Chicago classics. Quirky sound effects and catchy vocals simmer on top of hot acid bassline to give you a couple of the summers most memorable bangers! But don’t be fooled, Mousse is no one-trick-pony. On the flip we step out of the bungalow and into ‘Afternoon Bloom’ where jazzy pianos dance around a playful machine rhythm. Rounding out the four tracker ‘Bare With Me’ delivers an evolving house jam with a conversive synth line and dubbed out chords.
A killer debut release from one of Melbournes rising stars
