Boomkat Product Review:
Gargantuan slingshot from one of 2016’s definitive artists, putting down the cold-ass kicks and mentasms of Equality Now backed with a smart bit of tribal minimalism and a pocket of tender ambience.
Thanks to its super-minimal, unyielding construction and the stoic, stentorian repetition of its message, Equality Now is one of the strongest dancefloor hammers in its field right now. We’ve recently tried and tested it at the business end of a warehouse party and can fully attest to its ‘floor-dominating strength on a proper soundsystem, or even MacBook speaker for that matter.
The other tracks are fine examples of Mannerfelt’s versatility, swapping the rigidity of Equality for drily supple tribal drum friction and dissonant electronics in Breaking Pattern, and evaporating into ambient abstraction with Rules, Rope & Strings.
