Manuel Tur returns to Freerange following some brilliant EP’s including Foolin’ on Delusions Of Grandeur and more recently the sublime deepness of About To Fall on Mildpitch, the label he runs with Dplay. Recent remixes for Jazzanova, Azari & III and Wildbirds And Peacedrums on Dixon’s Philomena label show a creativity and drive for forging his own sound which leads us neatly to his forthcoming LP: Swans Reflecting Elephants.Manuel Tur returns to Freerange following some brilliant EP’s including Foolin’ on Delusions Of Grandeur and more recently the sublime deepness of About To Fall on Mildpitch, the label he runs with Dplay.

Whilst we wait for the LP’s release at the end of April, we’re happy to offer a taste of what’s to come with the single Back To Me which comes complete with Jimpster and Damiano Von Erckert remixes. One of the sweeter and more soulful tracks on an otherwise fairly hard-hitting and experimental electronica LP, Back To Me gives a glimpse of Manuel’s sensitive side with looping disco beats, phasing Rhodes pads and gentle vocal. A refreshing naivety permeates the track with the bassline creating an almost simplistic pop sensibility in the track. Jamie Odell goes back to the raw on his JImpster Dub version of Back To Me, focusing on the beats and bass but with a hey dose of dub FX and cut up string chords to keep things twisted. Deep and dubby but not lacking in bass heavy drive, this interpretation will keep the dancefloors locked into it’s spaced out groove and hypnotic vibe. Next up is Obsidian in it’s original form, the antithesis of Back To Me and proof if needed as to why Manuel Tur deserves reverence as a dedicated and focused producer who isn’t afraid to push himself outside his comfort zone. What we have here is an intense, driving techno track that sits somewhere between Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier and Slam. A definite old school sound pervades with nagging vocals and distorted FX adding intensity within the arrangement while the filtering bass and crunching snares drive the rhythm along. Finally we’re happy to introduce a remix from an exciting up and coming producer called Damiano Von Erckert from Cologne. With only a couple of productions to his name on his own vinyl-only label Ava he’s generating a lot of interest and here he steps up to deliver some seriously raw and jacking music with a definite lean toward old school Detroit techno. Simplicity is the key on his Raw Dance Mix with a simple bouncing bassnote providing the foundations while the looping vocals bring the heat to the basement!
