Broadwalk boss Julio Bashmore has recruited Kowton – himself fresh from that charmed Peverelist collaboration for Hessle Audio – for a new joint effort.
The track, premiered on Jackmaster’s In New DJs We Trust Radio 1 show, goes by the name ‘Mirror Song’, and is the pair’s first team-up to date. It’s an effective synthesis of the former’s pop sensibility and the latter’s muscle; the frazzled house backing comes over like a radio friendly rework of Two Dogs In A House, and the hook is another ringtone-ready Bashmore earworm.
‘Mirror Song’ will get a proper release in May as part of a three-track EP, also branded Mirror Song. The record will also feature Kowton’s skeletal ‘And What?’, plus a techno edit of the title track. A limited 12″ version of ‘Mirror Song’ will also see release as part of the Record Store Day festivities on April 20.
Mirror Song is due on May 5 on Broadwalk. Click below to stream.
