iTunes Editors’ Notes

Active Child is the work of Pat Grossi, whose sweet falsetto brings a legitimacy to his romantic electro-pop. He returns with this no-nonsense six-song EP, which builds on the magic of 2011’s full-length You Are All I See. British electro-pop diva Ellie Goulding upped Grossi’s profile by making his song “Hanging On” the lead single on her 2012 album Halcyon, and here she offers further support with the duet “Silhouette,” the EP’s clear highlight. Rihanna collaborator Mikky Ekko puts vocals in there with Grossi on the appropriately named “Subtle.” But Grossi's also quite capable on his own. He produced this EP in his home studio, where tracks such as “Calling in the Name of Love” and “Evening Ceremony” present their own definite atmospheres and approaches. The opening wordless track—“She Cut Me,” with Grossi’s vocals still playing an important role in the mix—conveys its emotional content via rhythmic shifts and truncated melodies. And a pure frustration is evident on the romantically neutered “Feeling Is Gone.”

Customer Reviews

Only good thing from working at Macy's

Working at Macy's, I heard Playing House and automatically fell in love with his voice and his music. Then I heard Hanging On and I was just blown away. His new EP is amazing. I can't wait for the album.

Revolutionary!

His music brings tears to my eyes, allows me to fully engulf myself in emotional bliss. If you like ultra-fresh, ambient/melodic electronic beats mixed with some amazing instrumentation, then you might want to look into ALL of his stuff.

I've been listening to active child for a minute now, my favorite songs being evening ceremony, hanging on, high preistess, all the others being great as well. He has easily become one of my top 5 favorite artists, ever.

:o)

LOVE EVERYTHING HE DOES.

Anything he touches becomes a magical journey of his expression. Anything he creates I will buy. Just what my life needs and it does the trick every time.
