Mickey Dagger’s Track “Past Life” is a Slow New Beat Burn

Mickey Dagger’s new track, “Past Life” featuring Athena, is the introduction to the new Samo Records compilation, Spiral. With “airy Tangerine Dream new beat styles”—as the Montreal-based italo and EBM producer who has released on Giallo Disco would describe it—is a slow burn with atmospheric loops and airy vocals. Spiral includes other tracks from artists Montessori & Korsssakov (Ombra International), Etane (Sulk Magic), Chase Smith & Karl (WT Records), BarumBarum (Sinchi), Barney In The Tunnel Feat Kim Little (Tunnel Signs + Kato – Ca$hminus), Birds (Hoga Nord) and label head Facets. The release, out December 4th, is quirky and danceable, retaining a rawness that is perfect for grimy, dark basements full of dancing bodies.
