San Francisco’s Manjumasi kicks off 2018 with one of the label’s most majestic releases to date. The ‘Cathedral EP’ from Moscow duo Doyeq features three originals and a pair of remixes by veteran producers Audiofly and Love Over Entropy.
The first tune ‘Another Day’ opens the EP with a deep melodic tinge, soft stringy pads setting the mood as a solid groove builds its way into the track. A steady progression gives way to a beautiful melodic interlude, laced with lush but subtle vocals. Next up is the title track ‘Cathedral’ which moves into darker territories with a brooding string section layered over an insistent bass-driven groove. Finally, ‘Damp Thoughts’ showcases Doyeq’s range, with a lo-fi groove that explores the edges of their sonic palette, meshing silky analog instruments with frayed digital artifacts.
The first remix comes from hugely respected duo Audiofly, a toughened up interpretation of Cathedral that situates the sanctuary squarely on the dance floor with an upfront kick and bass section that adds late-night edge. On the other end of the spectrum, Love Over Entropy offers a beautifully textured and sweetly-tinged ‘M is for Moody’ remix of Damp Thoughts, an emotionally mature and complex effort which is at once haunting and gently reassuring.
