You can try to convince me that Midnight To Monaco isn’t one of the most exciting new projects to surface in the past year, but you’ll fail miserably. After all, the Canadian duo are signed to venerated label Future Classic, and they’ve already given us two stellar tracks that I can’t get out of my head, including Suicide and One In A Million. Ricky Ducati and Donnie Sloan continue doling out fresh and unique electro doo-wop on One Way Ticket. Wherever this ticket is meant to take us, I’m all aboard! Midnight To Monaco injects me with a sense of adventure with the sleek zestful, cool dashing jam. The duo takes me back to October last year, when I visited the French Riviera and wandered along its gorgeous shore from Nice to Monaco, arriving just before nightfall as the twinkling lights of the chic resplendent city came to life. Revisit the rest of Midnight To Monaco’s songs to date on Soundcloud. And get ready to sashay and doo-wop the night away.

Midnight To Monaco’s One In A Million is far too epic a jam not to share all over again now that the Future Classic signed duo has released a music video for the song. The Australian two piece’s “electro doo wop” is unique and fresh, innovative and brilliant. One In A Million is hypnotically hooking, yet sleekly thrilling. It slides and shuffles with a cool confidence. One In A Million is the title track from a Future Classic compilation out right now, next to tracks by Ta-ku, Flume, Wafia, Chet Faker, Wave Racer, and more. More information on the compilation can be found, here.

It’s been a quick half year since Future Classic signed Midnight To Monaco first swept me away with the duo’s infectious debut single, Suicide, on which they displayed a very unique electro-doo wop sound I haven’t heard before. I’ve been eagerly awaiting a new one from them since. Finally, this past week, the Australian act returned with their second single, which also happens to be the title track from Future Classic’s latest edition of their compilation series. ‘One In A Million: A Future Classic Compilation’ drops on March 25th, on which Midnight To Monaco is accompanied by other brilliant acts like Ta-ku, Flume, Wafia, Chet Faker, Wave Racer, and more. Just the fact that their song is the title track is a testament to the greatness of One In A Million. The indie electronic song is a hypnotically hooking, its sleek swagger much cool and dapper.

Here’s an unexpectedly delightful treat! Last week, I encountered a fantastic new band named Midnight To Monaco, who are signed to one of my favorite labels, Future Classic! The new act is an electronic pop duo made up of Canada’s Ricky Ducati and Los Angeles’ Donnie Sloan, and they bring us a swath of bright electro doo wop on Suicide, definitely one of the more unique debuts this month so far. Today, they’ve decided to offer up an acapella version of the tune. And it’s surprisingly good, despite the fact that the original’s radiance was delivered by much of its springy, synthy soundscape. The acapella definitely feels more somber, but it’s a riveting performance. It was probably offered up as a stem for remixing, but it sure stands out on it’s own as a magnificent stripped down vocal gem. You can download the Suicide stems, here. Suicide is out now on Future Classic.

I tend to love artists and acts signed to Future Classic’s roster, and the Australian label does not fail me with new duo Midnight To Monaco. The new act, formed by Canada’s Ricky Ducati and Los Angeles’ Donnie Sloan, drop a bright slice of electronic pop splendor on debut track Suicide. If there such a thing as electro-doo wop, Midnight To Monaco doles out a wealth of that radiant and playful sound on the sensational debut, alongside some Empire Of The Sun radiant synth spirit and some Daft Punk robot funk. Suicide is out now on Future Classic. And I’m much intrigued to hear what’s next from this new duo.
