DESCRIPTION

Mosco fell asleep and awoke days later with Red Axes. This is their joint offering for the ESP
Institute. Dikembe Manutu, the fictional character who’s name gives title to our thumping A side,
establishes a lush theme based on meandering steel drums and reverberating toms while a slew
of rich percussion leads us through the jungle on a melodic galloping bassline. Once this deep
groove gets us rolling, we’re treated to a variety of twinklling melodies that float high above. On
side B, Rage In The Cage is a true live drum machine jam, full of bleeps, detuned toms, abrasive
cymbals, and plenty of left turns. We can only imagine the mood in the studio as these three old
friends frantically smacked buttons and tweaked knobs, creating happy accidents and loving
every menacing moment of chaos as they stirred this cauldron. These two songs will make you
thirst for exotic nectars.
