DESCRIPTION

Manuel Tur returns to Delusions following his recent classic Most Of This Moment on Freerange and proceeds to throw another whacking great curveball
for those who have think theyʼve got his game sussed. Itʼs quite safe to say the last year or so Manuel has continued to push and redifne himself as a producer, refusing to stick to one sound or repeat himself which has resulted in some amazing releases aswell as some fruitful collaborations. Recent remixes for Permanent Vacation, Diynamic and Dixonʼs Philomena label all display his deeper, left-of-centre and more techno-edged sound. Here on Delusions we have the (bi) polar opposite in the form of the Foolinʼ EP.

The title track is a beautiful slice of soul-drenched house which goes for a classic sound with simple horn chords, rolling bass and incessant claps spicing up the groove. A simple vocal refrain is spun in like a DJ drops an accapella and once heard thisʼll be stuck in your head for days. A firm fireside favourite with all of us here at DOG. Thereʼs also an instrumental version of Foolinʼ for those with vocalitis.

Flipping over we have The Traveller which sees Manuel head down slightly more familiar territory with a heavy, lo-slung groove providing the backdrop for some Axelrod-style strings and horns, live bass and floating vocal adlibs. A subtley haunting soundtrack feel pervedes as the arrangement developes but the relentless driving beats make sure this track never strays far from the dancefloor.
