Mihai Popoviciu returns to the label with an incredible new EP. Remix support comes from Frink and Pornbugs. Legendary Romanian producer Mihal Popoviciu broke into the scene way back in 2001, over 20 years later his back catalogue, including releases for Poker Flat, 8 Bit and Bedrock, showcases just why he’s considered one of eastern Europe’s most innovative artists. Given his gifted talents in the studio, it wasn’t long before he was travelling across the globe DJing at clubs and festivals as far flung as Thailand, Canada and everywhere inbetween. For the digital release, two originals and two remixes make up the pack. Opening with ‘Jewel’ skipping hats and a low slung bass welcome you back to mind of a master. Deep disco-y sweeps add melodics to this subtle head nodder that hypnotises in the sweetest way. Grooving you to bliss is Mihai’s mission, and boy, does he deliver! Next up, the second original, ‘This’ takes us deeper into the groove. Funky deep bass and a vocal refrain “This is the real thing” kick things off before airy pad sweeps and chords add the meat of the melodic content. Teasing out the key changes over the mid section the story unfolds with class. For the first of the remixes, label bosses Pornbugs take the vinyl-only original ‘Only’ on a merry ride. Beefing up the groove and phattening the drums, they transform the track into a solid uptempo peak time monster. For the finalé, Spanish deep house hero Frink reworks ‘This’. Turning the dail to 11 from the off he teases the original motifs into a sultry pleasure palace of vibe. An EP full of secret weapons for months to come.
