Bottom Forty

Bottom Forty is a mirror ball in New York, a basement in Chicago, a cruise in L.A. and a night in the desert.

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.

As you may have noticed, a lot of my Bottom Forty posts are intertwined with my blog, Disco Droppings. I’m an evangelist for the artists I feature, through blog features, DJ sets and in conversation with friends. Brooklyn’s Sleepyhead first came to me through Mirror State, a producer based in Australia with a show on Sub.Fm. One day I was tuned into their streaming app, and caught him playing “Nothing Changes”, off Sleepyhead’s My Lyf / Together¬†release on Embassy Recordings. It’s a deep and hypnotizing song, one that really stays with me. He’s also got the fantastic Motions EP on Trouble & Bass. Love the warmth and depth in Sleepyhead’s productions. “Late Nights” is available for free download, just click on the track name in the Soundcloud player..
