Motion Control is a mysterious new project by some girl I don’t know and the artist formerly known as Old Gold. I’ve been listening to them obsessively ever since a friend shot their tracks in my direction, mostly because I’ve been trying to figure out an accurate yet non-pretentious way to describe them. The best thing I can come up with is that their sound’s heavily routed in the 1980s, with one foot in freestyle and the other firmly lodged in Italo-disco.
Most likely, I have failed in both the non-pretentious and accurate department with that description, so let’s just put it this way—this is some really good stuff. You’ll like it. I swear!
