Rusty Egan Presents
Welcome to the Dancefloor

5 years ago in 2010, I was asked to remix RERB by Shock – a piece of electronica I wrote and recorded with Richard James Burgess on a Roland Micro composer loaned to us along with the prototype Simmons SDS 3 DRUM trigger. I say trigger as we did not have any pads, just the brain so to speak. Making RERB with John Hudson in Mayfair Studios, Sth Moulton Street, W1 sparked my love of the future of recording and writing music. Richard introduced by me to Spandau Ballet as a producer and went on to an amazing career as an artist in Landscape and as a producer of many 80s hits. RERB was released on Blitz Club Records and everything was set up by MRC who planned to finance an album with Steve Strange and myself and various musicians and it would be Visage 4.

In 2012, Chris Payne – formerly of Gary Numan and co-writer of Fade to Grey sent me a couple of instrumental musical pieces. Inspired, I contacted Robin Simon, who added his trademark guitars, and Gerard O’Connell, a fantastic writer singer I had admired, and Evermore was written. MRC sent me a load of demos and said that while I had been recording they had nearly finished Visage 4. “OMG”, I said, “how can you write and record a brilliant album if you don’t give it the time?” The reason was Ultravox had released {Brilliant} and we have to have Visage ready to release at the same time. At this point, I realised that MRC had registered VISAGE and had Steve Strange happy to carry on without me or my songs and we parted ways.

For the past 5 years, the songs, musicians, and performers have one by one and day by day showed up to my amazement AND Welcome to the Dancefloor is ready for October 2016. Joining me in the producer’s chair is Nick Bitzenis aka Nikonnhttps://www.twine.fm/Nikonn – suggested by Chi Ming Lai of http://www.electricity-club.co.uk/about/ – a man who knows his synth history.

As a writer, programmer, drummer, and backing vocalist, it was quite a task to complete my own album. I turned to my programmer/producer son Oscar Egan for help with Wunderwerke and Thank You and started them in my home studio. For Love Is Coming My Way, I asked Mat McKenziehttps://soundcloud.com/hypnotica – to try a few synth lines and loved them. Andy Huntley on Hero hits the perfect pitch, and Kira PorterWhere The Night Falls – on Be The Man & Emily KavanaughNightclub makes Evermore their own. Erik Stein of Cult With No Name joined us for 2 songs on vocals for Love Is Coming My Way & Ballet Dancer, and Tony Hadley makes Lonely Highway just sublime. Opening song and single from the album is The Otherside ft. Peter Hook on bass and lead vocals. Arno Carstens features on Dreamer. Anni Hoganhttps://annihogan.bandcamp.com/ – contributed a great song rewritten and recorded ft Nicole Clarke. Keeping back a few surprises and a guest singer and amazing songwriter has co-written and recorded an absolutely brilliant performance.

We have 2 more songs still in writing and recording stage that may be added to the final album or even a remix cd we have planned. Great amazing DJ producer/remixers including Youth and Hifi Sean have all been approached and some have taken the tracks and are working on them over the summer.

Pre-order this album on download, CD or pressed on 180g Vinyl, alongside a 12” single now in advance and I will sign a few. I will also come to your Birthday Party and DJ and I believe if you pre-order on physical, you also get the digital album download links. So if there is a sample listening opportunity, do give it a listen. I look forward to meeting you and I do strongly believe if you love my radio shows, Visage and all my former productions and ever came to my clubs back in the day, you will love this…..

Rusty Egan.
