The Maghreban is back with new double A-side 12” ‘Lose It’ / ‘Wrong Move’ for Black Acre.
With a diverse background working under various aliases and guises in drum & bass, hip-hop, jungle and old pirate radio hardcore, The Maghreban brings a bit of everything to the table on the new 12”.
’Lose It’ is introduced by stark claps and disorienting genie noises on a front to back beat, before evolving into a sly six-minute house mongrel. ‘Wrong Move’ puts together elements of break beat, dub and mutant bass to lure the listener into a vaporous electronic dystopia.
The ever-surprising and elusive Joe hits us with sounds that I never knew existed. Shout out to Daphni/Caribou/Dan Snaith for playing "Tail Lift" - an out there melodic adventure with whistles, bells, drums, and perfectly placed vocals. One of 2017's best tracks according to Resident Advisor, Mixmag. "MPH" has been reverberating in our consciousness since Joy O played it years ago. Joe is consistent and a master at unique musical bangers. Top level production and wacky in the best way possible. Edward
