“Glad I Met You” is the first single off D. Gookin’s first EP, When You’re Lonely Everybody’s a Celebrity. This balmy neo-disco song rolls along seamlessly, with twinkles of chime and sweet flute, until some well-placed scratching reminds you that Mike Birnbaum (D. Gookin) is there making it all come together. A high-pitched electrified soloist fades in and out for the chorus, giving way to a shiny group chant on repeat. The retro synths and funky rhythms make this upbeat track one for the good times.

The talented drummer, vocalist, and DJ will be heading out on tour with label mates Worst Friends and Mux Mool on Oct. 2, beginning in New York, then heading west. Lulu McAllister
