On HI-TECH TONGUE, MANS O has prepared 6 club-drum based beats as the canvas for 9 vocalists singing in Wolof, Spanish, Berber, Catalan, Darija, English, French, and Creole. Ikram Bouloum, Khadija Zhar, Gitano del Futuro, La Rana, and Opoku, MBODJ, Mookie, B4mba, and Baba Sy from Jokkoo - all living in Barcelona and creatively involved in their own respective projects - are the perfect featured guests for this global-minded release.
Multiplicity is the main focus on this set of sonic weapons that seek to remind us that languages, voices, and tongues are highly advanced technologies, rarely comprehended as such. The attitude and spontaneity of each guest is portrayed within the beats, inspired by all planetary bass music and Black electronica such as Dub, Deconstructed Club, Tarraxo, Gqom, Jungle, Grime, or Dancehall.
The first single, ‘Enteros feat. Baba Sy’ is out now, followed by the full EP on October 13th.
