Broken Mirror Single/E.P.
TBR: 27th October.
Cool grooves spring immediately from the first release “Mirrors”, the A-side of the single/EP, a retro inspired pulse keeps the time alongside some happy clappy hi-hats while a spacey wobble throws everything slightly from side to side. The loop builds slowly creep their way into the mix, as every progression takes form, something new calmly enters the sonic experience and without quibble, suits the pre-made sound fabric perfectly. As the piece evolves, a quirky melodramatic yet fun-loving use of scale manifests in a leading melody which seems to carry no repetition at all. This kind of composition leans heavily on the principles of jazz.
The double B-side, “Broken Mirror” and a remix of it, take a slightly darker side of the same initial framework. Although similar in may ways to the A-side, the presence is gloomier and something that may match the atmosphere of an underground club complete with strobes and brightly coloured beverages. Totally different perspectives give the sound a new flavour, with a similar tempo and formula, the rest is original and as fresh as the opener.
It's been a prolific year for Mullaert, Broken Mirror being the third short release by the multi-musical composer and mixer. Techno vibes from one end of his reach mingle with classically inspired whistles and pitch work that could only have been reflected from the performances recently made with Tonhalle Zurich Philharmonic Orchestra. This previous experiment had successfully connected the worlds of traditional classical music with modern-day electronica, and perhaps it is a sign of more things to come.
The release is available to pre-order on vinyl from Amazon UK and soon also on Amazon US.
