Mirror On The Wall itself bucks the current vogue for sampling the vocal from Akabu’s Ride The Storm, and plumps for a near-identical intro instead, before settling down into a soulfully-inclined deep houser with busy percussion and male vox. Bitter Love is also soul-inflected but in a more bumpin’, garage-y kinda way, with skippy beats, organ stabs and female vocal cut-ups. Untitled Jam 01.0002 (yes, that’s what it’s called, I checked) is a more straight-up dancefloor bumper of the kind you might find gracing an IKs or DiY set, while finally Ain’t Cost A Thing takes us to a more spaced-out, late-night, tech-soul kinda place.
Bitter Love takes the gold for me but, as ever with LMD, the quality’s high throughout.
