Came across this compilation and you guys gotta’ make it yours. Showcasing an impressive range of styles; from acid to 2-step, garage, house and techno, this collection of tracks comes from the label March’85. I’m working on a Disco Droppings interview with the label head Ghostek, and my research led me to this release. Happy to see that my friends Arctic and Minerva¬†are featured in the tracklist. Arctic opens the compilation with “Kings”, a track I heard on his Soundcloud a while back, hyped to see it get a proper release. A stand out favorite for me on Tracks 4 My Mom is Ed Motion’s “Everyday”. Perfection.

Mirror State – Into The Night

Although Mirror State resides in Melbourne, Australia, his tracks channel the hazy, water-soaked environments of the Northwest. Over the years I’ve followed this dude, building many features for him on Disco Droppings, most recently this interview. His ability to reinterpret Garage and 2-Step has remained fresh. It feels like very personal music, close to the heart. You can grab his most recent EP below, been playing this out in my car and in DJ sets, brilliant work.

For best results, listen to Mirror State while it’s raining and/or at night.

P.S. He has his own show on Sub.Fm which you can stream Saturday’s from 11pm-1 Pacific Time. He later uploads many of the sets to his Mixcloud page.
