Let’s drift away with Portuguese producer/DJ Rui Maia’s, aka Mirror People, stellar new single “Come Over”, full of bright melodies, which features the lovely vocals from Iwona Skwarek of Polish synth-pop duo Rebeka. It only takes one listen to fall in love with this song. A rather dream-pop affair, “Come Over” finds Mirror People doing something different, this time showcasing his softer side.
Mirror People and Rebeka are no strangers to working together, they’ve already dropped a delicious, disco-infused track, called “Nothing To Give”, which was released last year on the mighty Discotexas.
Mirror People’s “Come Over” is out now via Discotexas. Get it here.
In related news, Mirror People has recently started his monthly “Obscure Disco” series, giving away disco edits as a free download for a limited time. You can check it out here.

What better way to start your Monday than with a delicious picnic, offered by one of our favorite labels, Discotexas. Today, the ever-excellent Portuguese label dropped its second “Discotexas Picnic” compilation just in time for summer.

Helsinki-based producer Jesse Oliver, whom you may remember from his collaborations with fellow producer Jay Lamar on last year’s “Diamonda” EP, has retured to Discotexas with his first solo release titled “Oceans”. And it’s a great one!
The release consists of two original tracks, “Oceans” and “Nicodemus”, and a fine remix by Portuguese producer/DJ Rui Maia, better known as Mirror People. The disco-flavored title track is our favorite cut on that EP and it’s certainly worth a listen. Give it a spin above, and take a long ride along the ocean.
Jesse Oliver’s “Oceans” EP is out now on Discotexas. Get it here.

The video is a remix version of the original work “SCANTS” (ANTS in my scanner), an intriguing project by French filmmaker François Vautier.
