Video Premiere: Need For Mirrors – Boys
Roll up, roll up… the DT fair is in town and we’ve got another exclusive for you lovely people to enjoy before the weekend with a video premiere from the London based Need For Mirrors. Titled ‘Boys’, the track infuses grime with techno over crispy rolling beats and we think it’s going to make quite the splash following its arrival via his own Zoltar imprint.
We’ve been tipping techno/grime hybrid for a while now and after hearing ‘Boys’ we’re sure you’ll understand why. A forward thinking track, with the bassline taking cues from Bristol as much as it does Detroit and the cocktail of influences combining the sounds of the Motor City with vocals that echo the streets of London’s recent grime resurgence, we feel this track is miles ahead of what’s going on in drum and bass at the moment.
Now, on to the video. The visuals are stylish and pleasing, the clip taking us on a journey through grimy London estates with a grainy feel which compliments the music perfectly. Check it out below.
Available now on 12″ vinyl and as digital download.
