~ Mano Le Tough
- Label: Buzzin Fly
- Cat Number: 063BUZZ
The ‘Stories E.P.’ marks the debut release on Buzzin' Fly from Berlin-based Irishman Mano Le Tough. A firm fixture on the Berlin club scene, Mano's reputation as a DJ developed out of his residency at basement club Kleine Reise, where his eclectic sets of disco, house and bass music garnered our attention. Following the delivery of a standout guest mix for the Buzzin' Fly Radio Show, Mano sent over a collection of demos that blew us away with both their texturally lush electronic sound and Mano's strength as a song writer.
Where previous instrumental-based material has appeared on labels such as Mirau, Dirt Crew, and Prins Thomas' Internasjonal, the 'Stories E.P.' marks the beginning of a new musical chapter for Mano: the introduction of his own voice and songs. On 'Stories' and 'From The Start' rich backdrops are built from drums, loose handclaps, woodblocks and toy percussion, twinkling pianos and rasping synths. It is part edgy, part dreamy. Manos’s voice, when it arrives to deliver his simple lyrical motifs is unaffected and plain, uncertain but clear. The results when set against the warm splintered undertow of the beats are heart-snaggingly atmospheric and affecting. The closing instrumental 'Take It Back' builds from the same components but peaks with a beautiful unspoken blunted euphoria - a perfect sunrise moment.
MIDLAND 'Love Mano's stuff! A lovely dark horse with excellent vocals.'
RIPPERTON 'This EP is a pure beauty. Smile, love and sunlight through the speakers.'
ALAIN HO (DJ YELLOW) 'Another killer EP from the Buzzin' Fly crew. Always been a huge fan of Mano's work - the idea, the quality and the sound is on top. A 5 star release.'
TIM GREEN 'Really incredible release. Stories is beautiful, the chords and vocal create such a great atmosphere. Am especially liking from the start, more for a dj set point of view. Great synth sound/hook. Will support these tracks for sure!'
HRDVSION (WAGON REPAIR) 'Mano le Tough is gold! Love this new EP! I like the vocal tracks a lot, but I LOVE "Take It Back" especially the loose synth work! Great job!'
