DESCRIPTION

Manuel Tur has been making some great music recently, whether it be as one half of the Ribn project with partner Langenberg, on numerous remixes alongside Dplay or solo on a variety of labels such as Mild Pitch, Pokerflat, Freerange, Mule Music, Drumpoet and now Delusions Of Grandeur.

Fianchetto opts for a dark, spaced-out and deeply hypnotic vibe full of warm, subby disco beats, shimmering Rhodes and echoing horns. A masterful production from Manuel that is loaded with atmosphere and sounds mighty on a big system. Next up we have Beasts And The Birds which goes for a heavy looped up disco approach full of raw Detroit sensibilities and attitude. Finally, Tim Toh (much respected and sickeningly young German producer releasing on Soulphiction’s Philpot label) stretches out Beasts And The Birds into a 9 minute journey into abstract dance. Once again, we’re talking unrefined, no compromise house music here, the likes of which you won’t be hearing on an MOS compilation anytime soon.
