Celebrated Hang player, percussionist, producer and composer Manu Delago releases his third solo album on 27th January. ‘Metromonk’ finds this boundary-testing artist distilling and delicately exploring extremes of dynamics and mood; manipulating the Hang in experimental and inventive ways.
Additional touches come from vocalists Douglas Dare (Erased Tapes), Pete Josef (a 2016 Gilles Peterson Worldwide Award nominee) and Isa Kurz, and legendary trumpeter Erik Truffaz (Blue Note), while Matt Robertson (Björk, The Streets, Bat For Lashes) reprises his regular role as co-producer.
The lead single from the album “A Step feat. Pete Josef” has been received well and supported by the likes of Lopa Kothari (BBC Radio 3), Jason Kramer (KCRW) and earnt an impressive 9/10 from DJ Magazine who thought the track was “Beautiful in absolutely every way”.
