Prins Thomas & co secure a double helping of Morgan Geist remixes of one of the highlights from Steve Moore's excellent Burning Feeling album. In its original, lovingly tongue-in-cheek form "Maybe Tonight" was a comfy, feel-good slice of Balearo-pop that quite naturally caught the ears of Chromeo. In the hands of Geist, the track is elevated to the upper echelons of anthemic synth heavy disco of the highest order - expertly programmed by the Metro Area main man into something that you can envision everyone from Erol Alkan to Jacques Renault getting plenty of mileage from.
Fitting neatly into the nu-Balearic canon, Burning Feeling casually flits between genres whilst retaining an air of orange-hued sunsets and barely-remembered sunrises. It touches on many of Steve Moore's recurrent themes - vintage analogue synthesizers, pompous soundtrack Italo, 1970s progressive rock, odd European synth-pop and, of course, cosmic disco - whilst throwing new elements into the melting pot, most notably the sort of poodle-perm sporting 80s power rock that melded heavy guitars with very silly synthesizer grooves (for proof, see the laughably over-the-top "Love Reaction"). It's a blend that makes for a heady, intoxicating and at times thrilling full-length. Thanks to Moore's immaculate composition and production skills, it's something of a triumph; a genuine Balearic belter. The beards will love it.
