Lonely Boy - Love Wanted (Dance:Revolt Recordings)

Dance:Revolt comes clean with its sophomore release featuring the forlorn yet funky sounds of the mysterious Lonely Boy. This forsaken lad has cozied up next to his most faithful friend, the blinking lights of a dark studio, and produced the evocative “Love Wanted” for not-so-lonely dance floors. “Love Wanted” cries out for spins as its ’80s dance beat references, plucky guitars, spacey echo flourishes, and stylish hooks make the swoons of the Lonely Boy come alive. So the Lonely Boy can finally have some company, Dance:Revolt enlisted a diverse cast of characters to flip up and rub down “Love Wanted.” Included are interpretations from the globe-trotting Paolo Mojo (Oosh Records), Patrick Podage (Noir, Circle Music), Sleazy McQueen and Jorge Collazo’s Space Coast (Lost Paradise), Subtron (Get Physical), and Brian Morse (Shelving Music). It’s a stellar package from Dance:Revolt that should find a home with DJs of many different stripes and earn Lonely Boy an army of new friends.

Sarah Favouritizm (Southport Weekender) - “Love it … full support!”
Will SumSuch (DeepWit, Etoka) - “Just brilliant! The original is lovely, and if there was any justice in this world it would be a pop hit. Great, varied remixes here, but Space Coast’s version has just completely blown me away. Evocative and fragile, yet powerful. The Subtron version is nice, too. Top release … oh, and great artwork!”
