Mia Mendi return to their melodic roots for another strong two-tracker on Watergate Records.
The Manchester duo have been in plum form, previously enjoying credits on the Oberbaumbrücke imprint with the excellent ‘Ubi’ EP with Thomas Gandey and last year’s ‘Robosynapse’ outing, which saw them explore nostalgic-tinged soundscapes including nu wave, synth pop and cosmic house.
‘Enter Machina’ sees them coming full circle to craft a pair of sleek melodic gems. The title track is a gutsy rollercoaster that swings between dreamy soundscapes and full-bodied psy-laced progressive with loads of builds and drops along the way. A thrilling cut. ‘Distant Present’ doesn’t let up the spicey intent. A stunning composition that touches on tech, psy, prog and vocal-led electronica that’s made for big moments.
