The Motion Epic

Ladies & Gentlemen Welcome Back to the 80s

The Motion Epic is a Synth-Pop/Retrowave Project comprised of Singer/Songwriter Pat DiMeo and Producer Dre K of Kingsway Studios.

The 1980s were a time of bright colors, high energy, big hair and expansive dreams and ambitions. For those who experienced it first hand, it was the height of pop culture as movies, music, television, fashion and even politics were more upbeat and optimistic. Succeeding generations see it as a fascinating, uncomplicated bygone era with iconic imagery, sounds and styles that continue to influence us to this day. The 1980s were a significant time for so many people, and they continue to inspire and entertain.

Pat DiMeo is an artist who wants to bring that positive tone, enthusiasm and fun back to concert venues and home audio systems through his innovative Retro Pop music and live performance experiences. DiMeo is more than just a musician and songwriter, he is a cultural touchstone, whose very appearance, approach to his original music and showmanship are more than simple adaptations of 1980s couture.

“The sweet synth-pop goodness of The Motion Epic. The Addicted Music Department loves these tunes and are eagerly awaiting this release.”

“Synth-pop dancer The Motion Epic incites an ’80s glitter-rave in much of his work, and on the heels of “Temporary Lovers,” he heaves out tear-soaked provocation with “Ulterior Motives,” a burning out of the end of a cigarette, remnants of smoke curling his nostrils and tattooing his skin.”

“Love is in the air for this one. Even for us at the office, here at CHF. We’re not the best looking chaps, but with this single ‘Bad Behavior’, we think we’ve got a shot.”

"Simply put, Midnight is an amazingly tight release that is big on “feels” and on creating authentic sounds thanks to that rich analog synthesizer which is the centrepiece here.”

“Think Madonna and Mr. Mister collaborating on a song for a John Hughes ‘coming of age’ film, not only do you encapsulate much of the 80s, you also capture the purity, drive and energy of the song.”
