Genre/Influences: Dance-pop, wave-dance.

Jian Outworld & Simona ReginaBackground/Info: Jian Outworld started to write music which seemed to be inspired by music genres like trance, electro-dance and future-pop. He was joined by singer Simona Regina and achieved a few tracks, which can be heard on “Mirror Soul”.

Content: The main source of inspiration clearly appears to be pop-minded although mixed with dance elements. The opening title-song sounds somewhat evasive while both members are singing on it. You get the robotic-like vocals of Joan Outworld next to the clear and powerful lead vocals by Simona Regina. “Mirror Soul” moves on revealing similar influences, but a bit more ‘new-wave’ inspired on later song.

This EP features 3 original songs plus 2 remixes. The remixes inject the real ‘dance’ touch to the production.

+ + + : “Mirror Soul” is a mix between pure dance influences on one side and electro/new-wave pop on the other. It’s well-crafted, somewhat dreamy and yet very danceable.

Among the remixes I especially recommend the more groovy-like remix of “Forbidden”.

– – – : I think it’s not an easy thing to mix different genres although the result is quite successful. It’s just a pity that the remixes (which are quite good) are only into dance-music. It would have been interesting to hear a remix made by a real electro-pop formation.

Conclusion: “Mirror Soul” is an interesting debut and I sincerely hope that both protagonists will work again on new music.

Best songs: “Moving On”, “Mirror soul”, “Forbidden – Black Cloud Rmx”.

Rate: (7).
