The weirdo underground live-acid-house duo of Ed Service and Jack Madin aka SHOUSE often invite local singers and musicians to collaborate when bunkered down in their Melbourne studio. 'Love Tonight' is an amalgamation of this working environment, whilst being a cheeky parody and adorable homage to classic ’80’s celebrity extravaganzas like ‘We Are The World’.
Assembling a choir of artists that they have loved and admired in their local scene including Oscar Key Sung, Monte Morgan of Client Liaison, The Harpoons’ Bec Rigby, HABITS, Pillow Pro, Jennifer Loveless and so many more! SHOUSE have created the type of number that champions unity and a shared sense of eternal wonder for the future and became an anthemic message of hope which found a global audience during the great pandemic of 2020.
In the words of SHOUSE’s own Jack Madin “This song is, to me, all about the love of your friends. Singing with your friends. Making music with your friends. Hanging out and doing bizarre projects with all your deeply confused but generous and open-hearted friends. The song is for all the people in Melbourne that make us want to make music. It’s a show of strength. Showing how we can all come together to help each other out, to sing each others songs and pull each other up when we’re down. Even though I wrote these lyrics, it means so much to me to hear all these incredible people singing those messages back to me.” The warmth delivered on this song is arguably tangible!
On remix duty Mike Simonetti delivers a dark acid heavy late night jam that was championed across Europe by Solomun and countless other tastemaker DJs, propelling the original hook into countless Viral Charts. German techno lord Oliver Huntemann spins tech gold with a propulsive peak time belter, while DJ Seinfeld eschews the chorus altogether for a fun lo-fi groove.
