In My Mind


Paragon Records

Released: Out now
In My Mind - Loguos

We say

Bursting onto the electronic music scene early last year with his debut singles Psychotic and Ego, Dublin-based artist Loguos (aka Sam Herbert) quickly found tastemaker support at key Irish radio stations (RTE 2FM, RTE Pulse, Spin1038 and Dublin 98FM) and BBC Introducing. He followed this up with the Spotify UK supported (NMF, House Music UK) track You Can Feel My Love, and is now back with this insidiously addictive synthwave-inspired house track. Drawing on Kraftwerk as well as the Chemical Brothers and Disclosure, In My Mind was premiered on HotPress and has since picked up spins on BBC Across The Line, RTE Pulse and Spin 1038 among others. With its killer beat and electro-fused synth hooks, this is an electronic banger that deserves your attention.

Des Cox / Songtrust / IRSC - QMEU32009954

Des Cox has worked in screen animation for many years as a creator, writer, producer and director, and has been responsible for developing and introducing new ways to animate. One of the benefactors of Des’s work was Jim Henson, the creator/producer of the Muppets and Sesame Street, who asked Des for permission to use the new methods he had developed to animate puppets, in his productions of The Muppets and Sesame Street.

Des’s stage show lasts for approximately 90 minutes and is totally adlibbed and consists of stand-up comedy, impersonations, stories and songs of every type.  This particular song was, a part of his act, also adlibbed initially, so the lead vocal and guitar on the audio track are still as originally adlibbed, with some other backing pieces added later.
