Hot on the heels of his LOW BATTERY debut and the announcement of his next EP on Shall Not Fade, Club Glow co-founder Mani Festo readies his latest arsenal of breaks-fuelled dubs for the Lobster White Label series.
Having become one of the go-to names for high quality electro, breakbeat and jungle over the last few years – thanks to releases on Sherelle and NAINA’s Hooversound Recordings, E-Beamz and WNCL Recordings – the UK producer picks up where he left off, re-imagining rave futurism and hardcore sounds through his own distinctive lens.
‘Digital Projection’ is a terrifying cut of grime-laced jungle. Stripped-back, but packing a punch, its large, alien-like wubs will make even the cleanest of ravers need a shower afterwards. ‘Jungle Poison’ reconsiders the typical junglist template with a dose of 2-step influence that makes for a high-energy cut of bouncy UK fusion.
The tempo drops as we venture into 130BPM breaks territory on ‘Roam’ – it’s introspective and melodic aesthetics providing a moment of calm from within the eye of the storm – before ‘Sleepless in West Norwood’ captures that distinctive warehouse rave energy with a sequence of breaks-scattered techno.
