Comprised of Matt Van Schie, best known for his work as the bassist, guitarist and founding member of the Sydney, Australia-based band Van She, and renowned, London-based producer, remixer, DJ and electronic music artist Mighty Mouse, best known for his work on tracks by Madonna, Gil Scott-Heron, Prince, Kate Bush and a popular reworking of ABBA, Du Tonc can trace their formation to a chance meeting at Paris’s Social Club, where both were playing back in 2010. 

Their debut single “Darkness” was released to critical applause in 2013 and after they recorded a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire,” last year, they spent the bulk of 2014 writing, recording and putting together a live show for a tour. Their latest single “Every Song” bears an uncanny resemblance to both Daft Punk and Phoenix, bands that Van Schie has toured with as a member of his band, Van She; in other words, the track is a breezy pop track comprised of four-on-the-floor drums, shimmering Nile Rodgers-styled guitar lines, sinuous bass, swirling electronics, gently undulating synths and plaintive vocals. And much like the acts that seemed to have influenced them, the track is a effortlessly funky, summery blast that you can do a little two step to; however, it manages to reveal a subtle sensuality at its core that brings the song somewhat closer to disco.
