For the second release on Futurepast, MGUN aka Manuel Gonzales offers a fresh take on his Detroit roots with three tracks that escape the usual categories. No two subsequent bars are identical, simultaneously reflecting and satisfying our curiosity. Gritty drums and panned-out synth sequences in “The Nerve” result in a suspenseful yet unmistakably energizing step. “Snap In”, with its funky, reverb-soaked highs and hefty breakbeat, demonstrates MGUN’s talent for folding in his electro and hip-hop influences. “Intent” recalls a dreamy, vintage slideshow projector, misplaced memories lining up in a heartfelt procession. Each track taps into an elemental feeling within, fitting snugly into Futurepast’s time-traveling vision.
A1 The Nerve
B1 Snap In
