Rodamaal, Manoo and François A – « FORTUNE EP » 069 BUZZ [Buzzin’ Fly].
Delivery from: Jun 10th on Buzzin’Fly
It is no secret that Ben Watt has chosen to close his acclaimed label Buzzin’ Fly to new music after ten great years as one of the UK’s leading dance independents. But the label has chosen to go out with a bang with one final single. Unearthed from the vaults are two dazzling tracks from cornerstone artists, Rodamaal, Manoo and François A.
Rodamaal’s ‘Fortune’ was originally completed back in 2007 but scheduling problems prevented it from being released at the time. Produced by the Franco-Portuguese trio (Rocco, Darkmountaingroup’s Alex Santos and Manoo) it is a stark but emotionally-charged deep-techno masterpiece, that deserves its place alongside their other classics for the label, ‘Musica Feliz’ and ‘Insomnia’. On the flip, and originally produced in 2005, is ‘Other Places’ a long-lost track by Manoo and Francois A. Full of summer shimmer and heavy bass tones, it was produced by the duo during their heyday at the label, and was a secret favourite of label boss, Ben Watt.
