Pete tunes in with top ra­dio track

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Fresh from a slot at a top Ger­man mu­sic event, Coat­bridge rocker Pete MacLeod had fur­ther rea­son to celebrate af­ter his latest sin­gle was af­forded sig­nif­i­cant air­play.

Elec­tronic dance tune Mino­taur was cho­sen as ra­dio sta­tion XFM’s “break­out track”and played through­out the coun­try last week.

The chilled-out Balearic sum­mer beat is the first song from Pete’s ea­gerlyawaited sec­ond al­bum and he is de­lighted with the ex­po­sure af­forded to the sure-fire hit.

Pete, from Kirk­wood, told the Ticket:“It was an hon­our to hear Mino­taur had been cho­sen as XFM’s ‘break­out track’as that’s a pretty big deal for a mu­si­cal artist.

“The truth is elec­tronic mu­sic is more rel­e­vant and more in­ter­est­ing than ever.

“It’s where we are in 2015. Peo­ple want to dance, and rightly so.

“Although I have writ­ten all of the songs for the sec­ond al­bum on my acous­tic guitar, it’s a dif­fer­ent ap­proach for me and I’m ex­cited to let it loose.

“Af­ter 20 years of play­ing live and writ­ing I felt it was time to lit­er­ally mix things up a bit.”

The Mino­taur air­play came hot on the heels of singer-song­writer Pete’s set at the Brem­i­nale Fes­ti­val in Bremen, Ger­many.

Af­ter the gig, a de­lighted Pete tweeted:“Thank you Bremen... that was a joy!”
