Nerang Recordings
Russia’s Gennadiy Manzhos has had tracks out through two of this reviewer’s favourite labels, X-Kalay and Furthur Electronix, and he’s developed a lush hybrid sound that pulls off the difficult trick of being melodic and floor-focused at once. His latest for the strong Nerang label features masterful lead cut ‘Funky Detune’, which matches a spacious feel and soaring string tones with an unstoppable acid bass groove and tough drums: it’s heavenly. ‘Dangerous Groove’ is purist electro-funk, and a joy, while ‘Electro Foreva’, though not especially original, hits hard with its crispy snare, and bass that wiggles all over like a funky worm. As well as two house tracks, there is the mellow ‘Autumnesia’, rounding out a magnificent selection.
