Morgan Page has certainly come along way from his native Vermont. On his third full-length album for Nettwerk Records (April 3, 2012), the Los Angeles-based artist strikes a brilliant balance between kinetic house music and blissful, radio-ready pop. Touting club anthems with the right dose of indie and pop flourishes, Page creates a danceable, diverse, and deep collection of songs.
He began crafting this collection in early 2010. In between stints on the road, Page assembled an all-star cast of guests to appear on these original tracks. That cast includes Tegan &Sara on "Body Work" and "Video," Jonathan Mendelsohn and Andy Caldwell on "Where Did You Go?" Greg Laswell on"Addicted", and a powerhouse combination of BT, Sultan, and Ned Shepard and Angela McCluskey (Télépopmusik) on the record's first single "In the Air." The lead track rises from an elegantly enticing electro haze into an infectious hook, moving from progressive house into propulsive pop.
The mega-collaboration resulted in a #1 hit on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay chart. Despite a long history of Top 10 successes -- "LongestRoad,""CallMyName,” “Fight ForYou” and “StrangeCondition” – “In The Air” is Page’s first #1single. When asked by Billboard Magazine about his career achievement, Page humbly answers, “it just got an immediate genuine response from people that blew me away.”
Page remains a powerful presence in the electronic music scene. He made a name for himself with 2005's collection of bootleg remixes, Cease And Desist. Getting the blogosphere chattering, he began carving out a niche. In 2008, he dropped his formal debut Elevate, which spawned one of his biggest hits to date "The Longest Road" featuring songstress, Lissie.The Deadmau5 remix of the track was nominated for a Grammy (Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical) in 2009. His sophomore effort, 2010's Believe, saw him continue to garner even more critical and fan acclaim.
The accolades didn't stop there though. In 2011 his remix of Nadia Ali's "Fantasy" received a Grammy nomination for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical. In the meantime, he also received three International Dance Music award nominations.
While touring and dropping records, Page managed to produce close to 200 remixes for everyone from Madonna and Katy Perry to LaRoux and Florence + the Machine. Most recently, he's remixed legends Daft Punk["Solar Sailor"] and Underworld ["Diamond Jigsaw"]. His other recent remix collaborations include work with Adam K and Bass Kleph.
About his remix style, Page explains, "You want to take the mix to a different level; you don't want to simply imitate the original.”
The new album sees Page evolving into an inspirational powerhouse in his own right. He builds his own space in the middle of the pop and electro worlds sonically. He affirms, "This record exists between the club and pop worlds with a little bit of indie thrown in there as well. I wanted to try some new flavors and attitudes, while keeping my sound intact. At the end of the day, it's really about the song."
