The dynamic duo of producer/multi-instrumentalist Nicholas Foster and DJ Luke Hadron, collectively known as Legends of The Seven Golden Vampires (LOTSGV), is back with a smashing new single, ‘Close To You.’ Released through Prank Monkey Records’ new subsidiary Johnny Fortune Records, this track is a funkadelic journey that promises to transport listeners back to the 70’s.

Following the massive success of their debut single ‘Autumn Fall,’ which garnered over 7 million TikTok streams and extensive radio play on BBC 6 Music, Radio X, and the BBC Introducing mixtape, ‘Close To You’ is set to follow in its footsteps. Drawing inspiration from the French House scene of the late 90’s and the nostalgic vibes of the 70’s, the single boasts an irresistible groove that will have you moving on the dance floor.

The single’s cover, designed by Gareth Halliday, who created the artwork for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds ‘Who Built The Moon?’ LP and accompanying singles, adds to the overall retro aesthetic of the release.

LOTSGV was born when Nicholas Foster, who has an extensive history in the music industry, decided to revisit his mash-up roots and collaborate with DJ Luke Hadron. Named after the 70’s Hammer / Shaw Brothers camp classic film, their mission is to produce an eclectic mix of psychedelic funk, northern soul, and extreme metal that keeps people dancing.

Foster, having played in several indie bands during the 80’s and 90’s, eventually transitioned to producing, leading to a remix of AIR’s track ‘Lucky And Unhappy’ being featured on the XFM Remix 2 LP. This experience introduced him to the Bastard Pop/Mash-Up scene, and he soon formed Prank Monkey Records with fellow mash-up artist Richie Brown. The label saw successes, such as the double LP ‘London Booted’ and DJ Riko’s ‘Whistlers Delight,’ despite some setbacks with uncleared samples.

As fans eagerly await the debut LP from Foster’s other band, the psych, shoegazey ‘Ghosts of Torrez,’ LOTSGV’s ‘Close To You’ offers a refreshing and electrifying taste of what’s to come. The duo plans to hit the road for a DJ tour this summer to promote the release, so keep an eye out for live announcements and prepare to get groovy with Legends of The Seven Golden Vampires.
