Romania’s Mihai Popoviciu is a name synonymous within the musical worlds of house and minimal across the globe, with his slick blend of restrained yet impactful productions combined with an effortless style within the booth taking him from notable venues including S.A.S.H in Sydney to fabric in London and Kater Blau, Berlin in the past few months alone. A regular on the likes of Poker Flat, Inermu and Bondage Music, whilst also releasing a string of stand-out EP’s via his own Cyclic Records, Popoviciu now delivers his first full EP on Gruuv having featured on the label in late-2018 to remix fellow house-favourite James Dexter as he reveals his latest three track EP entitled ‘Somehow’.
Title cut ‘Somehow’ gets things moving as Popoviciu goes to work fusing simmering acid lines with infectious vocal hooks and trademark slinking rhythms, whilst ‘Dublearic Rhythm’ takes a more paired-back approach utisiling dubbed out chords and slick percussion arrangements throughout. Closing, ‘Right Side’ pairs further impressive chord work with bumping sub-bass to shape up yet another quality outing on Gruuv from one of Romania’s finest house talents.
You can now listen to the full premiere of ‘Right Side’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
