Sydney sweetheart Hearteyes, aka George Michelle, aka purveyor of melodic 90s house/contemporary pop and procurer of emotions, has given us exclu$$$ive first access to a brand new mixtape called Joyride The Stars. And let us just tell you something: it is by far better travelled and better at expressing itself than we are.
Put together between the years of 2015 and and 2019, the tracks were produced between Sydney, Los Angeles and Berlin. Traversing so much time and space and vibe (seriously this thing spans all the sexy joys of Passion Pop-soaked dance floor hits as well as all the desperate joys of MySpace sad tunes), it makes perfect sense when George tells us, “I wanted to embrace that beauty of anything goes.”
“We are reliving a true renaissance of creative freedom and I’m privileged to work with such talented people that can help bring that idea to life.,” George tells us. “I wanted to spoon-feed taboo themes such as suicide, addiction, psychosis – things I’ve struggled with over the past 5 years – in the most palatable way possible.
I can’t be upfront about it, but it’s as close as I’m going to get and it feels good to finally air it out to the world. This tape really is just catharsis.”
