After Mani Festo’s last contribution to our techno-oriented Basement Tracks series, a sequel was a no-brainer. It’s no exaggeration to say that over the last couple of years the DJ, producer and label boss has become widely recognised as one of the UK’s most exciting techno artists, given his easily identifiable sound, each release just as bold and hard-hitting
as the last - this one included.
Synkron EP boasts Mani Festo’s ability to create raw, industrial electronics which never sacrifice movement nor swing. Each track is crafted with a precise direction, some via industrial electro instrumentals (‘Barricade’); others with acidic accents and the introduction of breaks (‘Grass Snake’) and another with hard techno proclivities (‘Synkron’). If this weren’t enough, we’re stoked to draft in iconic Bristol producer Addison Groove who adds sharp rim shots and spasmodic synths to ‘Barricade’ to give it even more movement and body.
