Humanoid - 7 Songs - 5th July on De:Tuned

Post by Ross » Wed May 12, 2021 12:36 pm

Image
A1. "Truc"
A2. "Last Seen"
B1. "Pyramid 17"
B2. "Swerver"
B3. "Osculated"
C1. "Hed Set"
D1. "Seen Last"
12" + 10". Digital. No CD.

Humanoid invades De:tuned with a new and highly anticipated 7 song album of classic acid cuts. Flashback to the '88 acid-house spirit! Brian Dougans embarks on another journey of 303 breakbeat euphoria followed by fast, frantic and beat driven productions. The additional 10" completes the hallucinating trip with 2 floating acidic corkers.

Kevin Foakes (Openmind, DJ Food, Ninja Tune) created all the graphic work. Mastered by Matt Colton at Metropolis and pressed on 180 gr vinyl. A separate digital release will also be available at the usual digital shops. Stay tuned!

Clips on Juno.
Sound-wise, a move away from the more complex IDM sounds of Built by Humanoid, mostly four-to-the-floor beats, squelchy 303 lines, atmospheric pads. Reminds me a little of some unreleased FSOL material like 'Eleven Hot Knives'.

Lots of Acid here. Sounds great and very Humanoid.

Woah yeah completely going back to 80s Humanoid - great to see the shifting around of styles for this returning alias!

De:tuned have just said on Facebook that it's been delayed to 30th July now.

Love vinyl releases these days, they add a wonderful sense of tension, guessing just how many weeks or months you'll have to wait after the initial release date before you actually get a copy.

First listen now, really solid so far. 'Pyramid 17' has what sounds like a Lifeforms sample in it, tying in with the regular returning of sounds over FSOLDigital. Hed-Set is a collab with Will White (unsurprisingly, given that's also the name of their production team).
And, weirdly, Gaz receives co-writing credits on the album.

Publishing dates it as 2020, so I'd imagine it was probably knocked back quite a bit by Covid and the general vinyl meltdown at the minute.

CD version coming out on FSOLDigital on 19th November:
https://www.juno.co.uk/products/humanoi ... 846053-01/

The title is misleading as the CD version features seven bonus tracks.
Truc
Last Seen
Pyramid 17
Swerver
Osculated
Hed_Set
Seen Last
Tower
Battle Storms
Turrek
Co-Pilot
Monthuk
(K D P)/12
The Far Point

Far Point and Tower were released on compilations and Co-Pilot was on the Built by Humanoid bonus EP, that still leaves four unheard tracks though.



CDTOT 83, which is the next number up from WHE, so I would take that as confirmation that we're not getting Environment Seven this year...

So this started out as an EP but now it became an album, didn't it?
Ok, I'm in :D

Nearly picked up the digital version of the 12'' so am happy my terrible speed at picking up new releases has ended up paying off for me :D
