Off the back of a single on Moda Black, and a remix of Romanthony on Glasgow Underground, British duo Mia Dora drop ‘You In The Future’ via Kerri Chandler’s MadTech imprint. Released as a Beatport excusive, it gets its general release on the 25 November. Mia Dora, have been making a name for themselves since stepping onto the scene in 2010, earning their initial wave of support off the back of remixing Roots Manuva’s, ‘Get To Get’ for Big Dada, which was picked up by Radio 1’s Giles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbs and Rob Da Bank.
The duo have been signed up by Jaymo & Andy George’s Moda imprint, and have firmed up their name as possibly one of the hottest acts of 2013 having been enlisted to rework Romanthony, Walker & Royce and Grum. Title track ‘You In The Future’ kicks things off, seeing the duo embrace a rawer, more upfront focus in comparison to previous singles. Smoothly shuffled drums lead the way, while cosseting Rhodes, a bumpy, sub-driven bass-line and a classic organ hook build the melodic movement. Things intricately evolve throughout the tracks seven-minute duration, with baroque changes in the structure, and additional elements such as a hypnotic acid line, keeping things intriguing and evolving dynamically as the record blooms. Following is ‘After The Dog’, the duo again opt for a rough and rugged feel with the drums, while an insistent rounded sub bass drives the groove, and consistently varied classic chord stabs fuel its energy levels. Drawn out reversed sweeps then build tension alongside sporadic percussive rolls, to create an impact when reverting back to the sturdy foundations. To close the release Mia Dora offer up an ‘Extended Edit’ of ‘You In The Future’, drawing out the groove for extended mixing. Check it out below.
