The Weekend - Michael Gray

Song: The Weekend
Artist: Michael Gray
Album: Analog is On

Happy Friday!  Here is the perfect track to add to your permanent end-of-the-week playlist, one that I can't believe I'd never heard.  Thanks again to friend and reader Nick for introducing this one to me.

Michael Gray is best known as one half of the DJ/Remix production duo Full Intention who have officially remixed songs for the likes of George Michael, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, and Sophie Ellis-Bextor to name a few.

Gray started releasing tracks under his own name in 2004 starting with "The Weekend," which became a worldwide hit later that year.  In 2005 it became a top 10 hit on Billboard's Hot Dance Airplay chart and was featured in commercials and television programs.  How have I missed this track?

The subsequent album, Analog is On was released in Japan only in 2007 with other singles "Borderline" and "Somewhere Beyond" failing to reach the success of "The Weekend."  I've been listening to Analog is On and it's a great little Pop/House record that covers a lot of ground from summery, poolside jams to harder club cuts.  I recommend.

Get hyped y'all... it's FRIDAY.
