Aug 20, 2013 Ovum Event
OUT NOW DIGITALLY AT BEATPORT
Having found a very fruitful collaborative friendship, Michael L Penman and Ambivalent (aka Kevin McHugh) have begun exploring the intersection of their approaches to music-making.
For their Ovum debut the duo have delivered a trio of tracks that have those three elements at their core. Title track Shimmer brings together raw jackin’ funk with a warm driving bassline and scything techy stabs whilst Chevalier matches its fun bouncy groove with an infectious and spritely melody. Final track Memogram comes heavy with the oldskool, delivering a bed of beats and samples across the very heaviest of acid-kicks. Not for the feint of heart!
HUGE SUPPORT FROM Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Josh Wink, HUXLEY, Satoshie Tomie, Doc Martin, Luca Bacchetti, Anja Schneider, Nicole Moudaber, Marc Romboy, Carlo Lio, Uner, Andrew Grant, Stephan Bodzin, Gary Beck, Karotte, Gregor Tresher, Michel De Hey, Steve Parker, Kenny Larkin, Monika Cruise, Danny Howells and more!!!
