Manu Louis - Coltan Major Harmonics: Music For Escif's Magic Piano [IGC037]

Coming in via mail from Spain is Manu Louis' most recent 7" release named "Coltan Major Harmonics: Music For Escif's Magic Piano", seemingly themed after and influenced by an interactive installation piece by Escif which we're admittedly not familiar with. Opening with "Coltan" we see the Belgian artist explore multi-layered vocals over crisp, stripped down Electronica-infused beat structures, coming together in a well groovy, lo-fi Leftfield R'n'B manner and providing a romantic, intimate soundtrack and possible future favorite for those in the know whereas "Avec Ta Danse Tue-Moi (DJ Monte La Voix)" speeds up things for advanced dancefloors whilst indulging in a hefty 808-low end, French vocals and more Electronica references which, in some way, evoke sweet melancholia-infused memories of the late 90s / early 00s when venues like Hamburg's beloved Astrastube were still the place to be. A record that would been on heavy rotation in baze.djunkiii's former "Die Gesellschaft Ist Krank" events for a reason.
