Morgan Page - Elevate (Nettwerk)
Originally making his name as a deeper house producer of note, releasing his debut album on Nordic Trax in 2002, Page has seen his stock rise since spreading his musical wings and remixing pop artists. Elevate, his debut album for Nettwerk, features a number of radio friendly poppy electronic tracks and remixes of big names, which span various genres. Every track has been produced excellently and is ‘nice‘ enough for daytime radio play. I can’t say I’m a huge fan of everything on the album, but there’s no denying the power of tracks such as a smooth guitared effort entitled The Longest Road feat Lissie, his laidback keyed retooling of Jenny Owen Youngs angst F**k Was I and his calm mix of Under’s Under. Page is already on the route to stardom and this album is set to make him a producer de jour in pop and electronic circles.
