The first remix, City Reverb's Time Side On became an immediate hit with Aeroplane who featured it on their mix for Pete Tong and his BBC Radio 1 show. Remixes followed for Ali Love, Bent and an astonishing assault on Circles by Detachments. By this time the Mighty Mouse sound was labelled 'nu-disco', drawing influences from house, techno, disco and 80's music whilst also exploring a love of the psychedelic. Mighty Mouse quickly became an online star thanks to the monthly mixtapes and his infamous re edits.
Too Many Sebastians, and Stoney Roads were the first to pick up on the Mouse sound, however, blog love has been consistent with Mighty Mouse regularly climbing into the Hype Machine Top 10, most recently in December 2011 scoring a number 1 on the Hype Machine with a re work of Gill Scott Heron's 'I'll Take Care of You'. Gorillaz, Fenech-Soler, Shades Of Rhythm, Shy Child and Robbie Williams' Last Days Of Disco' all benefitted from some of the Mouse production magic. These remixes and the rework of Rob Da Bank & Tom Middleton's Paganini Rocks single featuring Au Revoir Simone built the Mighty Mouse reputation with DJs, resulting in high entries on the Buzz, Zzub and Coolcut charts along with radio support on the key specialist BBC Radio 1 shows: Jaymo & Andy George, Rob Da Bank, Annie Mac, Kissy Sell Out.
The press picked up on Mighty Mouse thanks to the Disco Circus compilation series. They combine disco old and new, house, techno and 80's rarities. Mixmag Magazine lauded them putting the first two volumes in their top 10 compilations the year. Features and rave reviews followed in The Times, Guardian, London Metro and all the major dance press. Disco Circus 3 is scheduled for release in March 2012.
Mighty Mouse has released a string of singles, including club hit's Junglefish, The Beast, Song For Ellen and Between The Pavement and the Stars. A concept album titled 'Song With No Word' made up of 10 movements picked up further great press and admirers in Andrew Weatherall and Lemon Jelly, the latter citing Movement 3 as one of the best tracks they'd heard that year. The UK's leading national retailer HMV asked Mighty Mouse to curate a night at The Jazz Cafe for their 'Next Big Thing' festival where they joined forces with Rob Da Bank's Sunday Best Records.
Touring has been hectic, 2011 starting with a trek around Australia as part of Future Music Festival, with stints DJing at festivals around the UK including Big Chill, Rockness, Electric Picnic and Lovebox. Added to that, Mighty Mouse made his first trip to Ibiza playing for Annie Mac Presents… at Amnesia and then onto Sankeys along with dates across Europe and the UK.
With Disco Circus 3 released in March 2012, a new label in Herve's Cheap Thrills to release a string of new singles across the summer and new album to drop later this year, the Mouse is showing no signs of slowing down in the studio. Out of the studio a European tour kicks off in March with an Australian and US tour in April following by a summer of summer of festivals.
A busy little Mouse.
