Discover Mihai Popoviciu :
Mihai Popoviciu joined the team for the fifth vinyl release of the Popcorn Records’ fabric. From Sibiu, Romania, Mihai is known and respected as a major producer, being part of the Highgrade family, and freshly signed on Poker Flat Recordings.
We begin this record with Sortable, evolving with a deep vibe around a subtle patch that conveys you in weightlessness. The whole theme is sprinkled with a synth that unconsciously reminds you the cue of a famous pink comic of your childhood… D’Julz (Bass Culture, Circus Company) have been seduced by this original track, and gave us a great rework by using all the elements in a total different way, focusing on the drum’s effects.
On the B face, Blur close this records with melodic patches and slight strings flying around a deep bass for a perfect summer result.
