OUT NOW: William Forest & Max Cue “Painted Dream” **MNL**

MNL075

William Forest and Max Cue are back on MNL after the release of ‘Odd Shaped Eyes’ on one of our ‘Seasons’ EP’s earlier this year. The duo from Belgium serve you with a beautiful new song titled ‘Blighted Shade’, an emotive piece of work. Melodic techno at it’s finest!

On remix duties we welcome Namatjira on board, a Dutch artist that has been on the forefront of the progressive house scene for quite some time now with a proven track record with releases on Hope Recordings, SexOnWax, Lowbit, Balkan Connection and most recently his well received album on 3rd Avenue, a label which is also not a stranger to Max Cue.

So it’s up to you, the consumer; will you go for the emo-techno touch of the original, or do you lean more towards Namatjira’s progressive workout? Heavy pickings!

OUT NOW: Dustin Nantais “Cloak” (Max Cue Remix) **MNL**

MNL069

“This is Max’s fifth appearance on MNL and he has certainly found a home on the Manual Music family of labels, having released his critically acclaimed ‘Mindfulness’ LP along with a slew of singles and remixes over the last few years. Most recently Max appeared on Proton’s Particles imprint and remixed Huminal’s ‘Pocket Universe’ to rave reviews. For those unfamiliar with the ‘Cloak’ original it was a chugging prog house beauty and Max has overhauled it into a gorgeous electronica cut with swirling textures and a bevy of hypnotic motifs. The lead hook has been reprocessed into a sonic haze while a bed of broken beats and shuffling rhythms gradually build tension towards a dramatic break. A tastefully epic conclusion closes both the track and EP off on a strong note and definitely leaves you wanting to hear more new material from Max.” Mitch Alexander @ http://www.change-underground.com
