Marea Stamper, aka Kentucky-born, London-based artist, DJ, producer and club culture iconoclast The Blessed Madonna, has released her brand new single “Serotonin Moonbeams”.
Her first solo release since 2017’s sumptuous disco house anthem “He Is The Voice I Hear” sees her teaming up with vocalist Uffie on a track that’s been tearing up dance floors in TBM sets throughout the summer.
The clue is absolutely in the title: “Serotonin Moonbeams” is house music at its most wide-eyed, celebratory, communal, and, most importantly, FUN.
Talking about “Serotonin Moonbeams”, The Blessed Madonna says:
We talked about what it was like to fall in love in the Vicks Vapo-rub, candy-soaked raves of the 90s. It’s about “cuddle puddles” and the intense emotional, physical and spiritual connections that can form when serotonal conditions are right. Barriers that might exist in a normal dating atmosphere evaporate and strangers can become intimate and beloved figures in an instant.
It’s gotten an incredible response since I tested it the first time in Brazil on tour. It was written on one of those days where I was running from the production console to the sofa to bang out lyrics with Uffie and Jin Jin. I remember being so embarrassed to suggest, “Bet I hit you with that bad bitch, thunder lightning, super frightening yeah!” But when I did, they just howled and we knew we were onto something.
