Poľský producent Manoid, ktorý vystupoval na prvých Swine Days v roku 2015, taktiež na filmovom festivale AFO v Olomouci, na ktorom Swine Daily pripravuje hudobný program, vydáva svoj debutový album Truth. Album vydáva na hamburgskom vydavateľstve hafendisko, ktorý je sublabelom hfn music (Trentemøller, Kasper Bjørke, Lydmor, Null + Void a mnoho ďalších).
Across the Truth LP MANOID delivers an amalgamation of styles ranging from jazz-tinged electronica like opener ‘No Time’, which features the Cellist from Atom String Quarted, one of Poland’s top jazz groups, through to modern classical influences such as ‘Letting Freedom Grow’ which is based around brass instruments recorded by Jedrzej Kupiec.
MANOID’s debut album radiantly displays charm, maturity and musicality throughout and joins the thread of his musical influences and experiences perfectly.
One half of Darkness Falls and Trentemøller collaborator Josephine Philip also delivers vocals on ‘Take Me’, adding yet another musical twist to the package, whilst further ideas came to fruition through field recordings such as ‘When’ which is based upon recordings from a textile museum in the city of Lodz, and ‘For Roses’ which was initially made as a lullaby for MANOID’s niece but he felt was a little too dark so later developed it into this enchantingly eerie composition for the album.
Vo Varšave sa 11. októbra konala release party, na ktorej si MANOID pozval hostí ako je Piqi Miqi, Anja Kraft, Pysh a Teielte live. Viac info v evente.
