Just a year ago, Red Mecca made their last concert with Frida Madeleine on vocals and released the pitch-black album I See Darkness in You. One year later, the new singer Susanne Jonsson has become an increasingly creative part of the project and after two celebrated singles during the winter, it is time for disco on an 12’’ single and a new album coming up this fall. Extra fun to release a disco 12’’ on the old punk label Massproduktion, who this year celebrates 40 years in business.
For the early teenager Jan Strandqvist, the contact with Donna Summer became life-changing:
-Working the Midnight Shift was the first Giorgio Moroder-produced song with Donna Summer I heard and fell in love with it in 1977. Every1's a Winner is just such an übercool song.
Then the punk movement came and changed it all over again.
Now it felt quite right to return to this and with Susanne Jonsson at the mike all fell into place. It was time to try to find that feeling again.
For Susanne, who was too young to have experienced the 70's electronic disco scene, it was fun to have a chance to get into this. - As a child, I thought they looked amazing in glittering overalls and high plateau shoes. A style that seem like science fiction to a young kid.
-We thought the time was right to make our own versions of two disco classics from the seventies, to pump them up and fill them to the edge with sparkling synthesizers and heavy beats so people could dance to them again.
New album – Truth – this fall.
