Manual | A Familiar Place (Static Caravan)
A man whose past releases rubber-stamped his skills with downtempo electronica; Dane Jonas Munk is the mask behind Manual. Munk's passion is for heartbeat micro-electronics that have their roots belonging somewhere back in the unearthly outer-reaches of the late-80's. 'A Familiar Place' is a limited edition single featuring four tracks that ache and sigh in all the necessary places. From the minute clicks 'n' cuts of the title-track to the dreamy washes of closer Horizon, this is not unlike what Angelo Badalamenti might produce in a 3am haze alongside a heavily sedated Orbital. Lush is the word.
