Local Heroes: Mirrors ft/ Amy Lyon – Hypnotize

LOCAL HEROES: Mirrors ft/ Amy Lyon – Hypnotize

A match made in heaven? Following on from the exceptional ‘When We Make Love’, Mirrors returns this week with a House/Garage hybrid which will appeal to fans of Disclosure, Dusky and T.Williams alike. Enlisting the vocal talents of Amy Lyon (fast becoming Glasgow’s go to girl for a lyrical hook-up), ‘Hypnotize’ is a perfect example of just what the young producer is capable of.

We’re a bit late on this, but if there’s one band you should be looking out for in 2013 it has to be CHVRCHES. With support coming in from the likes of Annie Mac, Rob Da Bank and em, Porter Robinson, the Glasgow-based trio are very much about to take things to the next level. Recent single ‘The Mother We Share’ is nothing short of sublime, fusing heart-breaking emotion to epic synths and a soaring chorus. Quality from start to finish.

Damn, Sei A has done it again. If you like your Tech House dark, disturbing and hard, then this latest release via the Hemlock label will have you banging your head against the wall in no time. Entitled ‘Hyphen’, you can expect swirling synths, industrial basslines and a pounding kick to take you deep into the Twilight Zone. David Lynch would approve.

It’s been a truly fantastic year for This Is I, and with a number of high-quality releases under his belt, you’ll be happy to hear he’s still got time to knock out the odd free download. Sampling the Dr Dre classic ‘Forgot About Dre’ and twisting it round a deep, introspective bassline, the producer stays true to form, taking things straight to the dancefloor with a refined and subtle edge.
