The Dynamic Duo of the Dancefloor Prove Third Time Is the Charm
By Mike Bahr
Two-time Grammy-nominated dance producer Tony Moran and Out Music Award winner Jason Walker are together again in another euphoric dance anthem, “I’m in Love with You.”
“There’s so much turmoil in the world right now, the dance floor needs a song like ‘I’m in Love with You,’” says Jason Walker of his latest single with Tony Moran. It is Walker’s third song with the two-time Grammy nominated producer. The powerhouse duo’s previous tracks, “So Happy” and “Say Yes,” both reached the #1 spot on the Billboard club charts. “It’s a positive number with a great beat to lift spirits up.”
“‘I’m in Love with You’ is meant to be a bold declaration of the love we hold in our hearts for those who matter most to us,” says Moran. “It’s also a reminder that — yes, people! —message counts. It’s important to tell those closest to us how much they mean.”
Tony Moran wrote the song with Ryan Shaw and Mike Greenly and is releasing it through his label, Mr. Tanman Music. To support the release, he has commissioned remixes from some of the top names in dance music, including Rosabel, Moto Blanco, Sted E, and Hybrid Heights, Mike Cruz, Tony Smith (“Tony’s Soulbeats”), Tommer Mizrahi, Strobe, Dinaire and Bissen, and Boris.
Moran and Walker also re-enlisted videographer, Karl Giant, the director of the “So Happy” and “Say Yes” music videos. Giant, in turn, brought in artist, Randy Polumbo, whose work has been exhibited at Art Basel Miami Beach, Burning Man and Coachella.
The video was shot in Polumbo’s 4,000-square-foot warehouse studio and at an ice skating rink with figure skater Jeremy Abbott, a four-time US national champion and Olympic bronze medalist.
“The set was like a playground with art everywhere, an elevated RV, blow torches, an ice rink… It was simply magical,” recalls Walker. He says he is thrilled with the end result, calling it a masterpiece of motion and color.
Moran says the true masterpiece is Jason’s voice. “The song starts with a steady continuum that reflects a steadfast love. It then breaks out into a joyous enthusiasm that embraces today’s electronic music and provides a platform for Jason to really let loose.”
Jason Walker grew up in Pittsburgh, singing in church choirs. He first shined on the national spotlight with a winning performance on TV’s It’s Showtime at the Apollo.
He has had four Billboard #1s: “Foolish Mind Games,” “Set It Free,” and the Tony Moran-produced singles, “So Happy” and “Say Yes.”
Jason Walker and Tony Moran first met through DJ Junior Vasquez when Vasquez commissioned Moran to remix “Set It Free.”
DJ Tony Moran will headline the Pride Weekend Warm Up Party at the Heretic on Friday, October 12, featuring a special performance of “I’m in Love with You” by #1 Billboard vocalist, Jason Walker.
