Mitiko – Nights Near The Fire
Mitiko (Sacha Mitich) fires back again on Disco Fruit Records, a label and lovechild of Tonbe, that has put out 7 megatons of amazingly good records since 2014. Mitiko rose to our attention with his incredible edit of Change’s ”Let’s Go Together” last year (also on Disco Fruit). Disco Fruit, a Serbian label, has a distinctive design to both their sound and their covers, the latter relying on an approach that lends more than a little from the Grand Theft Auto universe. Contemplated disco crimes.
With ”Nights Near The Fire” Mitiko conjures up a magical and lush R’n’B loop, and builds up an almost sexual vibe. A slow and driving beat gets company from a deep and lingering bass hook and leads into a looped vibe. Dubby, floating vocals flies around the mix, creating a dubby and laid back, yet super sophisticated atmosphere.
This is a different avenue for Mitiko, whose main output has a more melody driven approach. Although we’re suckers for classic melody hooks, this is a welcome variation in our book!
