Mirror People is a Portuguese new wave-disco musical project fronted by the multi-instrumentalist, DJ & producer Rui Maia. After a string of solid releases on labels such as Discotexas, Permanent Vacation, Gomma and Exploited, Mirror People steps up to deliver a on his own label, Belong Records.
Title track ‘Dance The Night Away’ opens things up, a funk-infused disco track, with funk guitars, pulsing bass and an emotive string section, featuring Italian duo Hard Ton, providing lush vocals and Sylvester styled falsettos.
‘Look Out’ is a perfect balanced combination between Maia's early 80's NYC 'Talking Heads - Larry Levan - Arthur Russell' inspired production and classic Chicago House vocals by the DFA / Defected producer James Curd. The track employs a solid beat, a brass section and experimental guitars.
The Pixel82 remix of title track ‘Dance The Night Away’ then rounds things off and gets things moving with a more house focused style layered with a punchy bass line and protruding rhythms.
Supported by Tiga, Danny Daze, Pete Tong, Matrixxman, Rework, Dusky amongst others.
