Mihai Popoviciu – Sleepwalking – Poker Flat Recordings

It’s almost all in the way the bassline grooves and moves you in inevitable ways when something smoulders as much as this does. Driven by punchy drums the unfolding sensation of drama soon gathers pace with the addition of grainy synthesisers capturing the ever evolving sense of adventure. Apart from occasional vocal touches it’s pretty much all down to the addictive rhythms, and they are certainly irresistible. Francesca Lombardo then adds sparkle into the remix with punctuating keys bouncing off Acid attitude and effervescent melodies.

Release: November 22

Mihai Popoviciu – Fiction – Poker Flat Recordings

Mihai Popoviciu delivers the kind of loose fitting, liquid fuelled funkiness that is unfortunately absent in so much music today. It probes at the corners of the stereo with chiming bass hits, shuffling drum patterns alongside questioning vocals, sometime spoken sometimes sung on the infectious standout, I Should. Twisted, follows with more robust rhythms aimed for the dancefloor boosting darker atmospheres, while Fiction feels more cosmopolitan in turn via its deft sprinkle of breezy synth lines. Interconnected completes this first rate release with a splash of smoky Chicago replayed just like the first time care off pulsating 80’s drums, the spoken word plus tinges of hot Acid colouring the grooves.

Release: March 24
