MacAngel – Love is a Hunter new single
MacAngel is a Cape Town music producer originally from Durban who has spent the better part of 18 years living in the mother city.
He has also forged a career in the music and entertainment industry over this period.
MacAngel has just dropped his debut single from his forthcoming album, Summer In Berlin – Reloaded called Love is a Hunter.
The single is released as an EP with three different versions and is an excellent taster ahead of the album release.
Love is a Hunter
Artists MacAngel cites as influences include Alphaville, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, OMD, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, David Guetta, Avicci and Global Deejays and the Love is a Hunter single certainly harks back to the synthpop era of the 80s when many of the aforementioned artists first made their mark.
Today you will find quite a lot of new synthpop on Beatport under the categories of ‘Nu Dance’ or ‘Indie Dance’. Overseas the reinvented genre has made a massive comeback as people tune back into these synth laden songs with a dance twist.
Love is a Hunter has all the elements of classic 80’s synthpop but with a 2016 edge and modern production ethos.
Fans are treated to three versions of the single and each one will no doubt be favoured by slightly different demographics and also be play-listed on different channels.
The album version is your straight up synthpop rendition and will make you feel like it is 1984 all over again, for those old enough to relate!
The ‘Alpha Omega Remix’ gives Love is a Hunter a more 90’s type club feel but without moving too far away from the original.
The ‘Eric M Beyond Spring Mix’ is the tougher dancefloor version and as the name suggests, it received the remix treatment from well established South African dance music producer Eric M.
On a technical level the production quality produced by MacAngel is really good. All three tracks are superbly mastered.
The album, Summer in Berlin – Reloaded is due for release on Next Music several weeks after this single. For more info and to download the song, click here.
