RELEASE: Mia Dora - Romanticise EP
We genuinely don’t think the anticipation surrounding Mia Dora’s ‘Romanticise EP’ could be any greater had High Sheen decided to giveaway free money with every copy. Quite unbelievably, it was way back in December 2010 that we first featured ‘Random Romantics’, describing it as ‘Joris Voorn sparring with Hot City’ - pretty accurate after hearing it again nearly two years later. Since then of course Mia Dora have maintained a steady hype with remixes for Roots Manuva and airtime on Radio 1.
If you’re a regular on some of Glasgow’s cooler floors you will have heard most of the tracks featured on the EP already, each time gripping the dancefloor with a sense of ‘what the hell is this?!’, followed by an instant trip to the DJ booth to find out. But it’s not just the incendiary lead track which makes this EP essential. ‘Hypnotise’, ‘Freckles’ and a collaboration with fellow High Sheen artist HaHaHa all break what we’re unafraid to describe as new ground. What else sounds like this right now? With a heady mixture of low-slung bass, shuffling beats, techy undercurrents and more than a touch of Hip Hop swagger, the summer of 2012 just got very interesting.
