mgun - Resin EP
Exceptional side of tape-manipulated techno-house experiments from Detroit new waver, Manuel Gonzales aka MGUN for the DBA label. As the latest in a long line of 313 splicers stretching back to Anthony Shakir - who used to be the in-house tape engineer at Metroplex - on the 'Resin EP' MGUN revels in the nimble, hands-on possibilities of reel-to-reel recording techniques on six tracks ranging from zippy vignettes to low-slung grooves and pacy techno bangers. The quickstep shuffle and almost-baroque melody of 'Assumptions' opens beside a woozy, wigglin' jacker 'Funkshun' and the knotty 150bpm wormhole jit of 'Migraine' for the mad cats while the flipside swerves from fugged-out abstraction a la Actress on 'Flutter', to a flanging killer called 'In The Road' reminding of Specter's 'Pipe Bomb', and a sluggish beatdown bumper titled '90 Sumtin'. It's a genuinely rarified sound, coincidentally sharing much in common with Delroy Edwards' recent LP for The Death Of Rave, but ultimately a sterling product of the D. Recommended!
