Over the past six years, Joe Moses has done it all. Under his Need For Mirrors name, his efforts have resulted in a series of releases which have rightly been labelled as classics. From Metalheadz and Playaz to Dispatch and Spearhead, NFM has been everywhere.
Also one of the names behind the legendary London d&b night Soul In Motion, Need For Mirrors' quantity is easily matched by his quality. His excellent music continues on HZN093, the Lvrs EP for Horizons Music, which contains three tracks on the physical release.
Wow' is the a-side, bringing elements of the old skool to a decidedly modern pallette. A slow burner, this one sets its stall out over a delayed intro. Dropping down into some classic late night vibes, the tune picks up to display its full beauty. NFM create the atmosphere, with some live sounding effects and rolling beats. Feel the pulse and feel the flow, this one is simply Wow.
On the flip, 'Down Time' again runs with a retro inflection, this time upping the pace and letting the sounds envelop your very soul. Playing around with melody and tempo, Moses creates a new world at every turn. One minute there's a liquid vibe, before adding in more bass, this is truly a tune for everyone. 'Lvrs' meanwhile, brings things down a little, with removed synths marking the backdrop for funky, jazzy chords and some frankly brilliant drums. There's different sounds creeping in all the time, so look forward to this one surprising and delighting you.
