“That pervasive dedication to heart-swelling drama is M83’s gift: No one is better, or more single-minded, when it comes to evoking dream-pop awe.” – SPIN
“An admirable paean to fuzzy memories, nostalgia, melancholic rumination and pop experimentation, imploring the listener to become the stories and places that populate dreams. 92% – FILTER

“Midnight City” is out now and included on the Midnight City Remix EP, which features remixes by Trentemoller, Big Black Delta, Man Without Country, and Team Ghost. Rolling Stone calls it “Gorgeous and highly danceable”, Pitchfork says it’s “The fine-tuning of a master craftsman only challenged by himself”, labeling it ‘Best New Music’, and SPIN says it’s “the soothing sound of all the creeps in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City rolling on E and hugging it out instead of murdering each other.”
Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp), mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, The Kooks), and including contributions from Brad Laner (from 90’s band Medicine), Saturdays=Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby,and guest vocalist Zola Jesus, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is a double-album journey that takes us to the horizon and introduces us to new landscapes. About awakening, craving, and conquering, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming pushes into new vocal territory for M83. Here we see Gonzalez test out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream. “I think it is a reflection of my 30 years of being a human being. It’s a compilation of all my previous music together. It’s a retrospective of myself”, says Gonzalez.
Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is the follow up to the John Hughes inspired and critics’ favorite Saturdays=Youth. Pitchfork called it, “An unaccountably alive, complete album”, giving it an 8.5 rating while, The New York Times, said “The music recalls the pumping beats and keyboard hooks of the 1980’s as if through a haze of time, floating in lush echoes that round off the edges.”
M83 is Los Angeles based French artist Anthony Gonzalez.
