NOT AN ANIMAL

Some truly wigged out, highly electrified galactic buzz on this new EP from Bodgan. Leading in with the ethereal thrumm of "Parovoznikov," riding a stuttering arpeggio and leaving plenty of room for the punchy drums and fluttering synth touches. Justin Van Der Volgen does a sensitive job of the remix, embellishing the core of the track with delicate chime refrains that add a tenderness to this muscular club jam. "Listopad" is a more mellow affair, but there's no shortage of fuzzy, vintage lead lines to bathe your ears in. Kito Jempere does a more drastic reinterpretation with his version of "Listopad," injecting a little acid and proto house bite into the track. Sounding super fresh this Not An Animal comes eager to please... get involved!

Machete Savane

Manticore - Inc. Jonny Nash / Ian Blevins Remix

Not An Animal keep up the good stuff here with a chugging dancefloor bomb from Machete Savane, the production alias of label co-owner Andy Bainbridge and kindred spirit Saul Richards. Switching into progressive disco mode Andy and Saul channel the cosmic spirit of Harry Thumann for the frankly MASSIVE "Manticore". If you're not up on your mythological creatures, the manticore was Persia's answer to the Egyptian Sphinx, and I guess this tune is Machete Savane's answer to Thumann's "Sphinx". Taking a pulsating mid-tempo and running with it, the duo add throbbing bass, sky-scraping feedback and star-blazing guitar licks, twinkling arps, expansive mallets and all manner of maximal disco shizzle to turn out a contemporary cosmic killer! Play it at -8 and watch the colours bleed! Remix wise, there's a very much 'night and day' choice to be had here, with Johnny Nash (Land Of LIght) providing his trademark blissed-out ambience to a beatless rendition and Ian Blevins taking the original even further into dancefloor territory, upping the tempos and evoking the drive of Paperclip People. Blasters at the ready folks, this is proper space music from the thus-far faultless label. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Machete Savane deliver a mid-tempo chuggathon here, which does it's very best to update the kaleidoscopic magic of German genius Harry Thumann. Coupled with a nebulous ambient version from Johnny Nash, this is one hot spacecraft, kids.
