As the year of 2011 is steadily coming to an end and setting excitement and anticipation for what’s to go down over the next 12 months, Torondo based Mark Mendes combines forces with fellow Montreal duo Paris & Simo for 2011’s last release from Starter Records. And as the track title would suggest, this collaborative effort from three talented Canadians showcases a graceful charisma in its summerish synth filled lead and a certain powerfulness in its complementary bottom layers that, combined, make for Aura to spread euphoria. Although things were left quite uncertain in terms of Mendes’ release of Telos and the take on Someone Like You with Thomas Gold earlier this Fall, the Starter Records label head wanders a tad out of his ”techy” comfort zone to team up with the Canada duo known by their recent appearances on Musical Freedom and Revealed for the six minutes of pure progressive house bliss that are Aura and to finish the year off in grace.

‘Aura’ is due out December 28th.
