Made in the basement of an old tram station circa 1990 in a town that was probably London, Hugh Manes first and only release so far consists of hidden gems on a vintage DAT.
Brought to RB’s attention via ye olde message board on DJHistory.com, “Back Life” is the name of this EP’s back bone. A reflexion about golden age deep house, early morning baby powder dreams or epiphanies on strawberry fields. “Hard To Finish If You’re Finish” and “My Midi Is A Mess” are the continuation of those visions, while “Fukdemdiscoidkids” via a Tuff City Kids edit is a rough and ready beat track. A Stupid Human effort.
Released: Jul 2013
