Mirra + fay (RU) LIVE
Mirra – the Moscow musician, one of the most promising on the Russian extravagant electronic music scene. Artem, brought up on Dutch Happy Hardcore and UK Breakbeat Hardcore since the childhood, has managed to pour the soul even in such, apparently, rigid and uncompromising style as Breakcore. His music is full of melody and vital energy, constant aspiration to experiments and a drive – he perfectly feels a present rhythm, combining in reasonable proportions idm, drum’n’bass and breakcore. It can be safely told – Artem has opened his own new style – romantic breakcore. In January 2007 appeared his first release on label Acidsamovar – AcSa003 Mirra – Never Knows Best. Mirra became the first in Russia who has let out the breakcore release on a vinyl record. In the summer of 2007 Mirra meets well-known Moscow MC, the vocalist – Fay, – and they create joint project Mirra+Fay, acting since then exclusively together. In this time the collective has time to let out composition Firefly on vinyl Various Artists, and as some compositions on various collections and digital labels (Make shift). In 2009 the duet played on one of experimental parties Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot in Rotterdam. Shaking to depth of the soul, expressive and sensual Fay’s vocal has lifted Mirra’s music to new level, and bright, qualitative and original Mirra’s music has allowed to open all potential of talented singer Fay. Everyone, who just once visited Mirra+Fay’s live performances for a long time remains under big impression – rare music capable to exhale so much positive emotions!
