DESCRIPTION
With the Manuel Tur LP Es Cub just about to drop we present you
DJ’s and vinyl aficionados with the first of two separate 12’s
highlighting Manuel’s brilliant third album.
In 2012 Manuel spent a year living in Ibiza, the birthplace of his
father and somewhere he has always felt a strong connection with
despite never having lived there. This period became something of a
sabbatical, a year of orientation both privately and musically and
despite managing to visit not one single club in his entire time
there the esoteric and cabalistic nature of the island clearly
became a big influence.
Ara Anam sets the tone with it’s warm, minimal approach, a sure-
fire dancefloor pleaser highlighting Manuel’s production skills and
giving a glimpse of the new direction Manuel has taken with this
LP. Next up we have title track Es Cub (taken from his pet-name for
his impromptu studio set up in a box room in his Ibiza home) which
continues with the deep, techno influenced sounds.  Hints of
clipped minimalism combine with the driving, analogue synth sounds
of say Baikal or Amé.
Flipping over we’re treated to About To Fall and Werk containing
both depth and a certain majestic beauty gained from the simple,
stripped back rolling beats and flowing pads.
Expect to be hearing much more from Manuel in the coming months.
He has become in demand for his mixing skills, working regularly
with Andre Hommen for Objektivity, Shit Robot for DFA and Marcus
Worgull for Innervisions.
