Irish DJ and producer Moorhouse has dedicated the song, “I Love You to the Moon and Back”, to his daughter, Abbie. It speaks about their relationship and what the future holds. Canadian artist, The Cellophane Heart, provided the vocals for the track, and the song was produced in Moorhouse’s home studio in Waterford, Ireland. The track offers a lively, upbeat 90s dance pop sound mixed with current top 40 influences from Baz Luhrmann and N-Trance. This track means a lot. And there is a reason for that. Sure, it may be electronic dance music, but it’s…different. EDM music is becoming too formulaic and ugly because of it. Moorhouse brings a new slant to the genre.

The best thing about purchasing an electronic track these days is you are buying one of the purist forms of musical artistry available today. Electronic music in general is touched by a fraction of the individuals compared to other genres, and in most cases is under total direction from start to finish by the original artists.

In this case these duties are shared by Thomas Moorhouse and Jeremy Gladstone a.k.a. The Cellophane Heart, who write, perform, record and produce this track with no interference from outside sources, except for the mastering done by Kevin Carafa. What you’re getting is their exclusive vision in all aspects of the final product. That’s what I mean by pure.

This track is very reflective, and after a few listens, I really felt like I knew both Thomas and Jeremy on a personal level. They went really deep here and didn’t cover up any feelings, laying it all on the line. You’ll probably feel the personal vibe a whole lot better if you have kids, but hey, you can just dig the music if you don’t.

“I Love You to the Moon and Back”, as a whole, has a slightly melancholy yet positive, happy feel to it. At the same time, the song is so beautiful. The Cellophane Heart’s spoken word performance adds an earnest and devoted tone to a playful, up-tempo beat. The contrast makes a flowing and encompassing soundscape.

“I Love You to the Moon and Back” is Moorhouse making a bold statement. He is not afraid to differentiate himself from the bass-dropping junkies. He wanted to make this track personal, and he did. And that’s an almost groundbreaking action, in a genre, rightfully or wrongfully, perceived as impersonal and cold, and made by very smart calculating machines! Wrong!

Moorhouse proves that you can make sentimental, heartfelt, and very personal music in the electronic genre, if you put your mind and heart to it. I found him to be successful in this effort, I simply can’t listen to this without being absorbed by all kinds of feelings and Moorhouse’s emotion perfectly portrayed by The Cellophane Heart. You should be impressed. Very impressed.

“I Love You to the Moon and Back” by Moorhouse featuring The Cellophane Heart is currently available for download on Apple iTunes, Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, Google Play, Spotify, Rdio and other online music streaming services.
