Dusk & Dawn is Private Agenda's most conceptual work to date. Sat at a grand piano, the pair composed two nocturnes over the course of twelve moonlit hours, chronicling the allure and mystique of the night. Building on an emotive pop foundation, developed over releases on International Feel and their own Nightshift imprint, Dusk & Dawn is a deeper sonic exploration that pays closer attention to ambience and sound design. Dusk is an enchanting take on new wave pop, referencing Talk Talk and early Simple Minds. A drum machine beats a half-time groove while a dusty but characterful synthesizer pulls the track towards it's cathartic dream-pop apex. Dawn draws on contemporaries like Imaginary Softwoods and Croatian Amor, bringing the listener down to earth into lucidity. Beautiful arpeggios soar over reverse guitars, wistful lyricism is coupled with detailed ambience. A blissful meditation to ease you into the day. Remixes come from Faze Action, Ron Basejam and Ian Blevins who all add their deft to touch to 'Dawn' and offer up flavors from different corners of the dance floor to this Adriatic / Balearic influenced piece of music. About Private Agenda Latin percussion, delicately layered synths, vibrant attire. Soaring pop choruses, a wash of melancholy guitar and a string of singles that could have been long-lost gems from disco's heyday. Having tastefully crafted their kaleidoscopic sound on a diet of obscure disco divas (Linda Di Franco, anybody?), the complete recordings of Compass Point studios and the hits of the 80s New Wave in the slightly ironic surroundings of a bleak German winter, their debut single, Déjà Vu quickly found a natural home on Mark Barrott's acclaimed Balearic imprint, International Feel. Released in too much acclaim, Déjà Vu / Freefalling premiered on BBC1xtra, before being awarded a 9/10 review in Mixmag (UK). The vinyl sold out in a matter of weeks. After a live debut at Berlin's Prince Charles nightclub, follow-up single Paralysed (which included a remix from The leading house DJ, Gerd Janson) premiered on BBC Radio 1 before becoming Disco Single of the Month in Mixmag Germany and DJ Mag Italy's Disco 'Money Shot'. Soon after the band would host their own club night series at one of Berlin's leading clubs, Farbferseher before launching their own label, Nightshift of the same name. With a string of remixes and releases dropping for labels as varied as Mark Jones' iconic Wall of Sound to the exclusive, vinyl-only Tusk Wax, Private Agenda have swiftly proven just as comfortable in the depths of Berlin's underground as amongst pop's leading lights on commercial radio.
