Bucurie – Mirror Time EP [feeder sound]
The fourth pressing to arrive from the Romanian imprint feeder sound is titled Mirror Time EP and features three intriguing cuts signed by Mihai Dinu aka Bucurie. Well-known in the international scene for his collaborations with Depth Over Distance, Otaku, Sanguina Records, Stamp Records, Hubble Recordings, Honne Music, Concept as well as for his independent releases on Bandcamp, the local DJ and producer brings forward a distinct sound that blends his deepest thoughts and feelings with hypnotic and vibrant microhouse or minimal techno music.
The artwork for this 12″ was carefully created by Maria Bălan as a part of the label’s ongoing live streaming events which brings together musicians and visual artists in order to connect the two different creative fields, expand beyond their borders and deliver fresh cultural alternatives.
With Dragutesku, Piktor and Oana being the ones that so far contributed to the catalogue, feeder sound stands on solid grounds, enjoying the support of a worldwide movement that can interact with the platform in numerous ways. Bucurie‘s productions have been noticed by the team for quite some time now so this record was a natural step to follow after his participation in the podcast series, the exclusive premieres and the EP Review sections, as well as on one of the live streams.
Side A is reserved for “Spacefunk”, a wobbling uplifting journey designed with a solid bassline, steady-paced percussion and eerie ever-evolving background effects. The reverberations and the subtle intertwined textures create a mysterious feeling, like being lost in space and letting the spiralling sounds guide your path.
On Side B we find “El Espacio” rolling with a warm vibration built with a prominent broken beat that elegantly merges with euphoric melodies and bright progressive arrangements.
“The Call” closes the EP with a driving dubby sound. Here, the atmosphere appears to be dimmer, being lead by delayed notes, subtle maritime chords and spacious breakdowns.
