Mango Tree / 2_12

A 2 track techno single (10m 1s) — released November 29th 2010 on Awkward Movements

Awkward Movements returns to release the debut from London's Dodger Man – one of the most talked-about new producers of the last 12 months. And with good reason, Dodger Man's multi-instrumentalist background opened the door for his high-profile sets bombed with back-to-back dubs of his own creation.

His workings played-out live have gained him a reputation as one of the top emerging DJs, the height of which came following an impressive set at Bloc Weekend, after being hand-picked by Joy Orbison to share the bill. The natural alignment with Awkward Movements has served up his highly-anticipated debut record, and it doesn't disappoint.

Marking Dodger Man's official debut, Mango Tree steps in where the underground bass sound's left off. Combining the same elements that pushed Floating Points and SBTRKT to the forefront in 2009 with the vibes that future garage has brought in 2010, Dodger Man takes it up with a deep bass rhythm, crunchy hi-end synth and drums for the decks and dancefloor.

Bridging the gap between tech and dub, 2_12 is the stripped down evil-twin on the B-side. Take a complex 22 track and strip it to its core without losing it's personality and you've almost arrived. A uniquely complex tune – wanting to burst out but eerily contained in its black hole minimal approach of grinded synth stabs and one-shot styled drums.
