037 – Dam Mantle
Adopted Glaswegian and Canterbury originator Dam Mantle has long been a producer we at Crack have revered, not least for his varied and original production talents, but also for his intelligence, music knowledge and his ability to condense the music scene with a awesome common sense and outgoing approach (see our recent interview with him). Crackcast 037 sees him escaping from some of the more avant-garde influences that defined his recent album Brothers Fowl, to lay down a superb mix that keeps techno as its primary staple throughout a pulsating 45 minutes. Through differing paces and moods, the mix touches on the rich variation present in the genre in a short space and acts almost as a blueprint for those unfamiliar with the diversity present in techno.
