The latest roller from Need for Mirrors erupts with midnight color. A deep, primal bassline lurches up, taking "Horus" alongside the tattered landscape of some crumbling empty city. Need for Mirrors is joined on the A side by HLZ and Mikal, ensuring that the listener's experience is at times quite dark, even while meaning to feel placid, frozen in motion at the breakdown: something chromatic, a near-piano riff, glissandos into space. This is drum & bass. Need for Mirrors continues with Mikal on "Solomon," keeping to the same sub-station wrecking standards, starting slowly with slightly shuffled hats and a two-step break before voices shouting overtop of the quaking bottom-end remind us, or perhaps they remind these artists, that everything can be made alright.
