Nervous Records to Release Mind Control’s Nervous Nitelife: Addicted

**Release Date: November 22, 2009**

Discerning dance music fans are often turned off by the term “big room.” Yes, while big room is typically associated with more commercial – cheesy – sounds there are also some really interesting things going on. In NYC, for example, Mind Control (AKA Peter Bailey and Richie Santana) are opting to create an entire experience rather than merely drop the hottest bombs on a crowd. Sure, most fans would be happy to hear the biggest tracks, but that’s too easy. This skilled team grabs the reins and operates the crowd with extended sets that gradually shift moods and directions. This isn’t about “glorious synths” and “peak time bangers.” It’s about doing something interesting and cool – but for the masses.

Named after their Stereo Productions smash of the same name, Mind Control launched it’s residency in late-2006 at world-famous nightclub Pacha New York. The party takes a bit of a unique approach in the club world, letting the two DJs tag-team track-for-track as their set progresses. But don’t think that the sets are disjointed – It’s almost like, as the name suggests, Bailey and Santana are working from the same brain, or at least the same control center. “It allows us to really work off each other, and work off the crowd as well,” Bailey says.“Sometimes Richie will play a song, and it will remind me or inspire me to throw up a track that I didn’t even expect to play. It has a nice spontaneity to it, and the crowd really seems to appreciate that.”

Nervous Nitelife: Addicted takes Mind Control from the big room to your living room. That is, this is a true representation of the music you’ll hear at one of Mind Control’s Pacha sets.
