TRANSMAT

Breakthrough release for young South African artist Mbulelo. The EP contains 4 fresh cuts merging techno with African coded rhythms. 'Origins' is a hypnotic trance-like percussive centred with beats and rhythms reminiscent of Femi Kuti, but without being too organic.
'Robotic People' seems to be the track people are talking about and calling it a banger. It is darker than 'Origins', edging on techno but not quite there. It can be a bit dense and claustrophobic at times but not in a bad way. 

On B Side we are greeted with melody, which is going to be the narrative on both 'Orchestration' and 'Panacea'. B1 makes heavy use of the 808 and beautiful melodies, all of it underpinned by a broken techno beat that manages to be solid yet warm and inviting. Closing ceremonies, is my favourite, the banger. It is actually not a banger, it is almost like a homage to Henrik Scwharz. Beautiful melodies, xylophone-like instruments looped and telling you a story. It is a pleasant, calm, warm and soothing way to end thiese very good 4 tracker by Mbulelo on legendary label Transmat. Heavily recommended summer vibes. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: High quality 4-tracker by new kid on the block Mbulelo. South African percussion heavily filtered though the machines riding along soothing melodies. Not bad at all.
