I… just… can’t… stop… dancing. Sometimes, you just find the perfect song for a given moment; That’s how I felt when I threw on some Fancy Mike and opened up my window to a fat ray of sunshine and a chorus of chirping birds. As Twin Peaks set the mood and the sun beamed down through my already milky hookah, I couldn’t help but start bouncing on my bed. You know what they say: if you can’t dance on your feet, dance in your seat!
Fancy Mike is a young producer hailing from middle America. Not your typical roots for an electronic producer; then again, Fancy Mike’s production isn’t all that typical. His vintage synths are reminiscent of old school video game tones (I’m seeing a rise in popularity in this type of sound), but what really distinguishes Fancy Mike’s sound is its upbeat ambient laser melodies. You’ve got ambience one second, and a euphonious arpeggio of glitchy laser-bass the next–it’s very compelling stuff.
