Preview Mumdance and Logos’ Upcoming Album on Tectonic
Clips for all ten tracks on the pair's 'Proto' LP have been shared ahead of its official release later this month.
Earlier this month, Mumdance and Logos announced that a collaborative album was in the works for Pinch’s Tectonic label. Entitled Proto, the effort won’t see an official release until later this month, but clips for all ten of its tracks can now be streamed via the label’s SoundCloud.
As we previously reported, the record finds the two UK producers (both affiliates of London’s now-infamous grime club night Boxed) zeroing in on the “very brief sparks of innovation when new scenes were just forming and genre rules and paradigms were still grey areas,” with a specific focus on “early bleep track days when imported American techno was starting to be appropriated by the UK, the 93-94 proto era when hardcore was morphing into jungle, and later when the darker sound of tech-step reared its mechanical, dystopian head.”
Proto officially lands on February 16, and album previews can be heard below.
