Back with a bang, Miami Horror are treating us to something truly special to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their debut album ‘Illumination’. This special edition of their ARIA-nominated album takes us on a journey back to where it all began featuring b-sides, top-rated remixes and of course, all our favourite tracks. One of which has to be Emagination – (illumination B-Side). Nothing but a pure feel-good tune, this funky electronic mashup gives us all the disco groves, and is certainly one to add to your party playlist for this summer.
But what did the band have to say about the album re-release and this uplifting b-side throwback? “It’s been so long now that I felt like it could be a nice treat to open that door. ‘Emagination’ was supposed to be a bit of a sample house banger crossed with the psych-pop vocal that some 90s house tracks had.” Well, there’s no denying that the Miami Horror guys certainly went and got it right with this one. As the iconic sampled house anthem and pop-synth vocals in this seamlessly blended track feel as though they were made for each other.
We’re pulled in by the familiar big house tune and taken on an elevating journey of Tame Impala-Esque gentle vocals funky guitar riffs thrown in along the way; and can’t get enough of it. Whether you want to gather a crowd on the dancefloor or just add a pinch of disco to your dreary Monday morning – this b-side banger is sure to get the blood pumping.
Turns out that taking it back to the old-school Mami Horror days was totally worth it, and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the upcoming special edition Album drop holds too. Let the sounds speak for themselves; discover Emagination – (Illumination B-Side) below…
