Spawned as Danny 'Dubble D' Ward’s alter ego last year the Moody Manc series of EPs have attracted huge attention from house music circles. For the next release on Fly By Night Music he starts off softly with ‘Clear Mountain’, where soft piano triads grow ever closer before a low-slung boogie bass sets the groove, and a lucid jazz trumpet completes the scene.
Second in line is the underground ‘Message’, fitted out from the start with bouncing toms and pulsing beeps and bleeps. A fully dubbed out vocal twists silken atop a chorus of stabbing chords and rushing synths, which may cause euphoria. Cole Medina finishes the vinyl version of the EP with his rework of ‘Clear Mountain’, taking the jazz influences a few steps further and creates a full on slow motion prog - apocalyptic jam! And as a digital bonus, Danny slides up the tempo fader to max on ‘Scrub’, a full on percussive club pumper, with a bouncing low end, punctuated with syncopated synth stabs and one really grooving cowbell! It’s out December 3.
