MIdmir - Step Into A Dream
"Step Into A Dream is the debut album from Midmir, collaboratively written and produced by Jonathan Jindra (Trills) and Frank Dambra (Arctier, Track53). The respected talents of both artists fuse together to produce a spark flurrying with a sparse palette of colour-changing, genre-morphing tracks.
Newport Riverbed eases us in with bendy synths stretching around deliciously laidback beats and melodies which eventually navigate into wavering atmospheric ambience. Erazi shines through elements of jazz whilst Step22 and Acidto dissolve into wide-open halls soaked in distant house chords and dripping with acid. The journey peaks with Cathode Blue and I Remember Her Handwriting, both epic in scale and build-up, ultimately climaxing in a spirit-lifting experience, leaving an urge to revisit and peel back the inner depths underlying this entire piece.
The great variety of shades and styles provided by each unmistakable artist meld together harmoniously. A sublime listen!"
