Kicking Off the Work Week Right with Draft’s Unique “Patience & Time” EP

Man, mau5trap has been putting out release after release of solid gold! To start off this work week we have the latest from mau5trap veteran Draft and his newest EP Patience & Time. For those who haven’t heard of Draft, he exploded onto the scene in 2013 when he released his first Phryday EP under the UK electronic label Pilot. After gaining plenty of acclaim for just the one release, he released two additional EPs in the next year with Pillage and Makeshift Constellations before being picked up by mau5trap.

Now how does Patience & Time hold up?  The EP is actually quite solid, as we here at MiR enjoy the ethereal machinations of both “Letheia” and “Feeling Forever”. Patience & Time is not only ethereal but ominous and a unique EP that could only belong at a label like mau5trap. Draft draws listeners in from the very first track and definitely will not let them go. Patience & Time is my platform to push boundaries. It is raw, yet homely, passionate, yet cold,” says Draft. “It’s baring my scars for people to witness, stare at, and grow to adore.”

Make sure you give this Patience & Time EP a full listen below!

Another Enhancement: Arcando Ft. MenEnd “Is It Possible”

Enhanced Music has been enhancing our music playlists for quite a while now, so it is always quite the surprise when they bring us their next release. This week we have the first Enhanced production by newcomer Arcando with “Is It Possible”. Arcando has been rising in the Dutch electronic scene for a hot minute and has even become an official remixer for Hardwell and Armin van Burren! What an achievement to work with two major powerhouses in the genre.

As for his first Enhanced release, “Is It Possible” is a delightful end of summer anthem from some of the freshest talent around. His first production is actually a collaboration with Mexican R&B singer MenEnd, whose vocal work just makes the track absolutely mesmerizing. Don’t take our word for it, as Arcando is the only one who can describe it accurately:

It started all with a moombahton drum groove I had for the drop. On top of that I made some chords with a Nexus piano and replaced the sound with a pluck. Then I made the vocal lead for the drop and tried to make it more interesting by adding a slight change every 2 bars. I made the break and build up in 3-4 days and sent it over to the vocalist MenEnd. He wrapped up the vocal line and lyrics and sent it my way. I played around with the vocal, so the track would get more unique and exciting. That’s how Is It Possible was born.” – Arcando

NEW FROM SPINNIN’: Brazillian Powerhouses Vintage Culture & RICCI Collab on “Later”

It is about time that we gave the Mir treatment to a new record label. This week we are checking out the latest from massive label Spinnin’ Records, who bring us “Later” a new collaboration between artists Vintage Culture and RICCI. These two are the latest and biggest producers out of Brazil, making a name for themselves after performing different sets at Lollapalooza Brazil this year. These two artists are quickly becoming the most popular electronic acts out of Brazil and are going to continue with performances at Rock in Rio as well as more releases for RICCI over on Sony Music.

Now “Later” is a decent example of a summer anthem out of the Brazillian electronic scene right now. The track is not only heavy on the synths and features sultry vocal work, but is almost guaranteed to fill the venue where it is blasting through the speakers. The warbling yet driving bass line will keep you dancing long after the night is actually over. There is plenty of chemistry between these two Brazillian powerhouses that we need more, more collaborations the better.

Make sure you give “Later” a full listen below:
