We have an interesting single in the shape of ‘Nothing to Give’. The record came about as a collaboration between hotly tipped Polish duo Rebeka and Lisbon disco don Mirror People and evolved into a record that sees the two acts each recording their own version of a single composition. An initial sharing of ideas and musical parts led to the development of new concepts and different directions laying the way for this unusual approach at
a collaborative release and bring through two very different takes on things.
Rebeka is made up of charismatic vocalist Iwona Skwarek and talented producer Bartosz Szczesny; the pair have had quite a buzz around them, even prior to their superb debut ‘Stars’ on Discotexas last year. Mirror People AKA Rui Maia should need little introduction with a string of stellar releases for the likes of Permanent Vacation, Hands of Time and of course Discotexas.
The single opens with Rebeka’s version of ‘Nothing to Give’, a pulsing three and a half minute plus arrangement that puts Iwona’s emotive vocals at the heart of things with a stirring mix of pads, synths and bubbling bass working around her. The Mirror People version comes next with Rui taking things into extended 4/4 territory with a rolling disco take that brings a certain sunshine to this superb song.
This is an unusual and unique approach to collaboration that has yielded stunning results, enjoy!
