It's always a great day when there's new Morgan Page music. Out now on Armada Music, “Sweet Illusion” features rising vocalist Maggie Szabo for a vocal-driven electronic anthem perfect for club or radio play.
Page needs no introduction to any fan of electronic dance music. The producer has been responsible for a growing catalogue of fan favorites that have dominated the electronic music ecosystem over the recent past. While some artists are hellbent on discovering their new style or chasing the latest trend, Page simply does what he does best: make good, catchy tunes that will stand the test of time. That's not to say he isn't expanding his capacities as an artist; in fact, Page's newest is slightly different from his usual style. Most notably, he provided organic instrumentals to differentiate this single from his usual synth-heavy offerings. “Sweet Illusions” starts strong off the bat with liberating lyrics and a catchy chord progression. Entwined with Page’s use of live instruments, the tune spotlights Szabo's elegant vocal expertise. High-spirited synths join forces with a feel-good cadence to speed up the melody, followed by a break layered with melodic vocal chops. Complete with a steady beat that's easy to bounce with, this effervescent tune is evidence as to why Morgan Page reigns one of the best in the modern electronic music era.
“Sweet Illusion is totally different from my usual work – it's much deeper and funkier. I played live bass, guitar, and Wurlitzer on it to give it more of a vibe than my usual stacks of synths. Maggie and Ellis did such a great job on the vocal, and all the elements just lined up perfectly. The song is all about escapism, looking for distractions from the everyday things dragging you down. It just feels very hopeful, empowering, and soulful – I hope people enjoy it as much as I had creating it!” – Morgan Page
