Merely four months after their rather song-oriented but critically acclaimed EP «Candlelight» (feat. Robert Owens) Mercury present a dancefloor killing EP for the summer. «Old Man’s House» (Gomma Dance Tracks, to be released on June 1st via beatport.com) contains three original tracks and a remix of the title track by Martin Dawson (Cocoon, Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical). The A-track «Old Man’s House» is a highly effective, minimalistic stomper, enhanced by Southern Gospel. While still being very dancy, Dawson’s version is cooler, adds more depth and gives the original a touch of disco. «Rio» is a genuine summer anthem combining an atmosphere of Brazilian joie de vivre with a drifty four-to-the-flour pump. Last but not least, «Lost in Ibiza», a deep, trippy track – featuring the singing (or let’s say moaning) of Mercury’s Simon – that takes one back to 90’s Ibiza.
