Early Sounds sister label Periodica presents Whodamanny
The member of Mystic Jungle Tribe presents sounds from the CZ-101.
It’s no secret that we’re fans of the work of the exotic, unusual work of the Early Sounds collective. It’s also no secret that we rate freaky sounds, and so the premise of, “the freaky side of Early Sounds Recordings,” is an enticing one indeed. That’s just what Periodica is billed as, a label that exists to present more esoteric fare away from the focused output on Early Sounds. So far we’ve been treated to tapes from MCMXC and Icio Omegha, and curious collections from Mystic Jungle and Manny. The latter’s lo-fi Sk8 Beatz Volume II release was a celebration of dusty electro grooves, while he also lent a hand to the first selection of crusty techno on Sk8 Beatz by DJ Belmont.
Now Manny widens his name and his remit to Whodamanny, presenting the delirious sounds of Cosmic Morphology. The meandering nature of the LP from the member of Mystic Jungle Tribe and The Normalmen is in fact a tribute to the Casio CZ-101 synthesiser, comprised of skits, sketches, noodles and occasional grooves sandwiched together across nineteen tracks. It’s a pretty wonky ride as you would expect, but it’s equally rich in wonderful sounds coaxed from the much-loved synthesiser. Take a dip in for yourself by way of the SoundCloud player below.
Periodica will release Cosmic Morphology by Whodamanny on June 7.
