In “Mood Swings” EP, Miguel Migs and Shades Of Gray have come together to deliver a fine Deep House affair drenched in rich textures, subtle undertones and moody melodies. Aspects of both classic and modern deep house intertwine expertly on these four tracks, creating edge and dynamism that is dance-floor ready.
The release starts off strong with “Create a Mood,” a truly deep groover of unparalleled freshness. With richly textured vocals, zippy synth stabs, lush layers, and tightly woven percussion, this track creates a mood of total allure and classic deep house appeal. “Down Underground” brings the late-night party vibes with a thick, sinister bass-line and a hypnotic vocal taking you deeper underground and telling you to dance ’til dawn.
“Let Me” is a feel-good moody jam with a thick, chunky bass-line, sparkling synths, hearty handclaps and an undeniable female voice that teases: “let me”. The “Salty Dub” channels more bounce with extra layers of throw back synth chords and a double-boost of boogie.
Smoke N’ Mirrors is proud to present, alongside our Inside/Out Winter Music Conference Party, a compilation featuring the best of the label including tracks from Crazy P, Death on the Balcony, Edit Murphy, Thugfucker, and more. This 10-track compilation will give you tastes of cosmic funk, acid-y analogue sensibilities, throbbing underground deeptech and more. Everything you need to take you from late-nights to early-morning and all of the debauched hours in between. With this compilation as it’s official soundtrack, Smoke N’ Mirrors is turning Miami Music Week inside out with the true sounds of the underground.
Smoke N’ Mirrors is on a roll this month bringing the best talent in tech-house and nu-disco to San Francisco and Miami.
Starting with San Francisco on Saturday, March 16th, the Smoke N’ Mirrors residency at Monarch continues, backed by grooves from UK’s rising Maxxi Soundsystem. Maxxi initially came to the public eye with his edit of “Criticize,” getting charted by renowned selectors such as Jacques Renault and Permanent Vacation. Since 2011, he has released a handful of promising EPs, including his recent 4/5 Resident Advisor rated Regrets We Have No Use For single on Hypercolour. Keep an eye out for his remix of Smoke N’ Mirrors resident Shiny Objects’s forthcoming single Higher Ground and catch him this weekend with support from Lance DeSardi, Shiny Objects, and Bachelors of Science’s new house alias Sleight of Hands.
Next week, in San Francisco (again!) on March 22nd, Smoke N’ Mirrors returns to Monarch in collaboration with Lights Down Low to bring disco edit flavor makers, Tiger & Woods. Tiger & Woods have been an SF favorite for a minute now, bringing out heads from all edges of the San Francisco house scene to parties put on by fellow tech-house purveyors As You Like It. Support comes from locals M3, Lights Down Low’s Sleazemore, and Shiny Objects.
Lastly, if you happen to be in Miami for WMC/Ultra, you’ll be pleased to know that Smoke N’ Mirrors has teamed up with The Electric Pickle and Red Bull Music Academy to put together a heavily stacked line up for Inside/Out, including exclusive sets from DJ Harvey, Osunlade, along with a slew of other performances from SNM artists, such as Maxxi Soundsystem, Edit Murphy, Death on the Balcony, Shiny Objects, along with friends, Jacques Renault, PBS Streetgang, PillowTalk, and more. Needless to say, this party goes on into the wee hours of the morning.
