Barcode 4250382426981 Rel date 28 April 2014 Tracklisting A. Time B1. Stay B2. Paper Box More exquisite heat from one of the most consistent producers out there. Mihai Popoviciu has been racking up an enviable discography in the past few years, as releases on Highgrade, Hudd Trax, Bondage Music and Popcorn Records testify. This, his latest outing on home-from-home Poker Flat, suggests we may yet have the best to come. ‘Time’ is a low-slung slice of electronic funk, featuring a dirty bass line and lazy, growling synth skirmishes. The feeling is tech-y, underground and analog - a perfect vibe for the Romanian’s killer grooves. ‘Stay’ drops a gear and cruises into even deeper territory. The melodies entwine to build a lush deep house groove, punctuated by a wonky lead and punchy, insistent drums. Popoviciu manages to hold plenty back, before unleashing a fierce drop. ‘Paper Box’ maintains the stripped-down sound design, leaving plenty of space of Popoviciu’s signature synth squiggles, stabs and fragments of melody. The result is a slick, grooving piece of futurist dance music.
