London born, Brooklyn-based composer Morgan Visconti has music pedigree coming out of his ears. His dad, Tony Visconti is a renowned producer, counting the likes of T.Rex and Morrissey among his clients, as well as David Bowie from Space Oddity to The Next Day, while his mother, Mary Hopkin, was one of the first acts signed to Apple Records (the Beatles’ own label). After years of performing as an assistant engineer, programmer and session musician, and composing for hundreds of ad campaigns, Morgan about to step into his own light with the release of his debut full-length.
No release date has yet been set for Ride, but the album’s first single will be released on January 27 through Morgan’s own human label. The single, which is getting its own release party on January 16, features remixes from famed Seattle producer Lusine, as well as Mickey, Ghosting Season, Shengi, and Gareth Williams. PopMatters is proud to premiere the Sloan Alexander remix of the titular track, an extended atmospheric house rendition with glitched vocals held together by clean sound design.
