Album Notes
For fans of Hi-NRG and Italo Disco, "Dance The Night Away" is a dance floor bonanza of beautiful music, smoking hot beats, and the kind of emotional lyrics that have made the Tyrants in Therapy worldwide favorites since the mid 1980s.

Spanning the very best of The Tyrants' catalog, The "A" side is as 80s as you can get, featuring the original club mix of "Too Tuff To Cry" (TIT's first international hit), followed by the original club remix of the underground Hi-NRG classic "Sweet Magic."

The "B" side is just as strong, with "Perfect Love," (#1 in Poland) and "Once Upon A Time" (programmed by the noted Greek composer/DJ Thomas Bainas) showing the Tyrants staying true to their Hi-NRG roots

If your original 12" copies of "Too Tuff "and "Sweet Magic" have worn out, "Dance The Night Away" is the record you've been dreaming of.

Those sweet retro sounds
Everything old is new again, the Tyrants in Therapy have decided. Known in more recent years for their distinctive ‘punk cabaret’ sound, the Los Angeles-based duo have gone all retro on us with a 12-inch full of hi-NRG and Italo disco sounds.

As the name suggests, ‘Dance the Night Away’ is a blend of melodic music and pulsating beats that will get you dancing – and singing along, however badly, to these Tyrants classics.

The party kicks off with the original club mix of ‘Too Tuff to Cry’, the Tyrants’ big hit from the 1980s. Some songs are old, faithful friends that never seem to age: this is one of them.

Rounding out the ‘A’ side is the infectious ‘Sweet Magic’. This is not one of those hit-and-run dance tracks. Instead, the Tyrants serve up a deliciously drawn-out number with a big, sweeping sound.

Flip over and the ‘B’ side is no less impressive. First up is the energetic ‘Perfect Love’, which, in 2012, went #1 in Poland of all places.

As it turns out, the Tyrants owe a debt to the Greeks and Germans as well. Thomas Bainas, the Greek composer and DJ, has contributed his production skills to ‘Once Upon a Time’. Wondering why it sounds so damn catchy? That’s because the Tyrants have skilfully sampled Beethoven’s Für Elise.

And for what it’s worth... the cover of ‘Dance the Night Away’ might just be the coolest damn thing you’ll see this year.

An essential HiNRG fixture's latest
From our beloved purveyors of playfulness and passion comes their latest 4-song EP titled “Dance the Night Away.” The act has always expressed themselves in a unique demeanor within danceable, energetic frameworks. Three of the songs here have enjoyed previous releases and are happily available again in their full, glorious 12-inch mixes.
A personal favorite, “Too Tuff to Cry” leads off the set. “Sweet Magic” and “Perfect Love” follow and maintain a distinct cerebral, melodic energy. The Tyrants are found firing on all cylinders on the selections throughout this delightful EP, while colorful synth patterns give a wink and a nod to similar classic European productions.
A newly-minted remix of “Once Upon a Time” borrows its melody from Beethoven’s “Fur Elise” and here is the standout of all, with its signature Tyrant style and characteristics poking through its timeless melodic fabric.
Striking jacket graphics in stark primary colors also make the EP a stand out. “Dance the Night Away” is available as an introduction to those just now catching up with the Tyrants, or as a toast and tribute to a cherished duo’s sustained success.
