A key figure of Items & Thingsʼ output since early 2012, Miro Pajic first appeared on the label with a remix of Marc Houleʼs “Undercover” (IT011), his debut swiftly followed by contributions to the Variables compilation (IT016) and a joint EP with Carreno is LB and Vicky Montefusco (IT018). “Reset Reset” marks his highly anticipated (and long-overdue!) solo EP for Items & Things.
From the discordant groove of EP opener “299” through the jagged hats and haunting reverberated synths lines of “Acid Friend”, the six originals on “Reset Reset” have been carefully crafted with the dance-floor in mind, capturing both Miroʼs trademark production warmth and hard-hitting dance-floor power. With the haunting female vocal of “Angles”, the mid-tempo machine-funk of “Ghettonup”, the sawtooth swagger of “Bleep Clone” and the serrated sample magic of “Moon Two”, these are pieces that sit somewhere between the romantic eeriness of Kubrick-esque soundtrack material and both the surreal and driving rhythms of contemporary house and techno. Miro's inspired and conceptual sound architecture is one that shines in a variety of interpretations that are both abstract and powerful, enrapturing the listener both mentally and physically.
