Song: Holidays
Artist: Miami Horror
Album: Illumination

From New Zealand's Kids of 88 to Australia's Miami Horror, some of the best electronic music is coming from the other side of the world.  A bit more of a disco-house throw-back, the "band" is really producer Benjamin Plant, who plays with a full band live.

Plant built a name for himself using the Miami Horror moniker for a slew of remixes including the early millennium house classic "Music Sounds Better With You" by Stardust, and a notable mix of Tegan & Sara's "Walking With the Ghost."  After a few singles starting with the release of "Don't Be On Her" from 2008, and then "Sometimes" in 2009... Plant released his first full-length as Miami Horror last week.  "Illumination" is a 70's and 80's throwback with some updated sunny house beats.

The album is another straight winner, with singles "I Look to You," and "Moon Theory" as immediate standouts.  The yet to be released "Holidays" is a winner, fun, light, with a great upbeat vibe.  If you're already mourning the loss of August, and the summer.... this one will bring you back.
