BROMELAIN / MANZANZA ‘Nocturnes (Dub mix)’

Written by on March 5, 2018

‘Noctures’ is the collaboration between producer Bromelain (Nick Hyder) and African musician Sam Manzanza (father of Myele Manzanza). The release features 3 alternate mixes of the same tune, all with their own distinct flavour: the club friendly ‘Tech Mix’, the livelier percussive ‘Afrobeat mix’, and the deeper Rhythm & Sound-esque ‘Dub mix’.

“This collaboration is a meeting place between Congolese improvisation and robust Dub Techno that evolved naturally over 2017. Our sound world is based on a directional, no nonsense approach to rhythm mixed with a muggy, heavily processed top layer.”
