Night Life by Jeff McCall

Night Life is the recent release by Jeff McCall a the former lead singer of 80’s synth-pop duo Malicieux Garde.  It’s electronica sound and beats took me back to some of the clubs in the 80’s when I used to DJ.  Among the great tracks on this album are Night Life, New Horizons, Am I Dreaming, Life Drama and much more.  I am very impressed with how he is literally a ‘one-man electro-pop band’ writing, recording and producing all his own work.  His music to sample and to buy is available at http://jeffmccallmusic.com.
