Daniel Maunick – Musica Encantada EP – Far Out Recordings

I guess the singular thread spun throughout each of these productions is that of life assuring, soulful intensity. That, plus the heavy-duty amount of funk ingrained into each of the four numbers. Excitement drips from every pour of Daniel Maunick’s, Hurt Feelings as the rush of energised percussion plus deep bass start this new EP with a definite bang. The drums provide an array of intricate patterns while the instrumentation plays like it means it. A Chance To See Again sequences the distinct flair of Detroit next, with the succinctly irresistible Africana playing like a drummers paradise in Latin. The self-explanatory Black Magic (vinyl only) completes care of punchy piano alongside more hot, rolling grooves compacted by that signature intensity.

Release: October 23

Daniel Maunick – A Vicious Circle – Far Out Recordings

Sometimes certain types of music sound like your life is playing on a revolving loop of one musical idea. But in this case Daniel Maunick takes the process of reworking the past over sizzling hi-hats and drums, and points it in the direction of enviable joy. This release has been limited to a run of 300 vinyl-only copies which begins with the Disco pump and grind of The Morning After. Smouldering over the night before the drums capture that certain point in time as vocals fly soulfully over the grooves, while irresistibly syncopated basslines keeps the energy levels elevated. Next are the Jazz-Funk flavours of A Vicious Circle, followed by the early eighties influences that achieve a One Nite Stand.

Release: March 1
