New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Hailing from South England, Miro (Monty Hancock) is making himself known for combining the intensity of dance music with the emotive elements of piano and ambient music. This fusion creates a distinctive style which takes advantage of the entrancing essence of electronic music whilst simultaneously tugging at your emotions with his impassioned piano playing. Miro touches many genres of music with his unique style, from House, to Dubstep, to scoring and writing classical piano books.

Beginning his music production journey in 2011 under an array of fleeting aliases, he finally settled with 'Miro' in 2015 and has since gradually been making himself known through the electronic music community. His remix of Lauv's 'I Like Me Better' has been his most popular release, with over 5 million views as of writing, and airing on SiriusXM over the summer of 2017. He released his first piano book 'Threadneedle' in November 2017 which is available on paperback on Amazon, and his second piano book 'Spine' in June 2019.

He was a founding member of the 'New Dawn' label, he continues to consistently release with them since he started in 2015. He also works closely with BlueBedroomRecords and has released his 'Voices EP' with them in March 2019. He has featured on popular YouTube channels such as MrSuicideSheep, AminiumMusic, Arctic Empire, AirwaveTV, and many others.

Miro describes each track on the album:
Deconstruction is a bass-centric electronic track with a heavy distorted bass as its main element. Combining elements of UK garage with dark minimal techno creates the intense atmosphere in the song. Deconstruction is in 7/8 which is an unusual time signature considering the genre, which keeps the groove slightly off balance.

Reconstruction is another compound-time signature piece using 13/8 manifest the sense of unbalance, but still seeming directional. Reconstruction is a more atmospheric and melodic answer to the precursory Deconstruction.

Twist is a nod to the trance genre. Melismatic female vocals with heavy reverb alongside a male choir coloured with distorted synths and percussion building in each section creates a dark and intense atmosphere.

The first half of Codex is a halftime 5/4 drum beat, which builds slowly — adding more synth and atmospheric elements as the track progresses into an elusive four-on-the floor type beat.

Gaslight is a minimal-techno track making use of primarily ambient style synths and a piano to accompany the drums.

Amongst the prevalent UK garage influence across the album, Circle Line is the one track which is an intentionally dubstep/garage track. The ambience is a vital component with this track, heavy use of foley in the percussion to the field recording of the London tube compliment the atmosphere alongside the traditional sounding synth pluck and automated Reese bass.

Pertaining to the theme of experimenting with rhythm across the album, Inertia make use of swung rhythms in the main synth arps in both sections and also the slightly swung shaker rhythm throughout the track. Inertia has a sound design serving to evoke a sense of nostalgia to the era of 80's Synthwave.

The concept behind Revive was to try and implement as many nostalgic elements across the album into the ending track, from the use of the piano, to garage drums, to ambient texture, and an evolving complex drum pattern. The synth throughout is panned left to right with an alternating triplet delay which gives it a composite rhythm which is constant throughout the track yet not always easy to follow.
