Manonmars and Bogues face off with Ishan Sound and Neek
This is one to snap your head off, straight from the Young Echo firmament. Ishan Sound and Neek join forces to lay down some next level riddims carrying some of Manonmars and Bogues most incisive flows to date. If the names are new to you, track back to get acquainted. If you’re aware already, then this crossing of swords should be very exciting indeed. Pure firepower slated to drop early 2022.
ASTRYD meet Machine Woman, Delay Grounds and more uptown
Claire Sawers’ interview with ASTRYD from earlier in the year highlighted their work in experimental techno as promoters of queer-centric parties, live performers and DJs. Following up on their debut EP Blind Summit, the Bristol-based duo have invited four producers to deliver new abstractions of their original tracks for the Blind Summit Reworked EP. Amongst the excellent results from their findings, which lean heavily into modernist techno territory, is this snappy, industrial-tinged version of ‘Allocated Leisure Time’ by Memory Play. Be sure to check the other sure shots from Machine Woman, Delay Grounds and El Hardwick too though.
