"Manazana" sets the stage with a spartan groove, wiping the slate clean before pulling a rabbit out of its hat: halfway through comes the barrage of whistling synthetic wind, opening up a new dimension on the dancefloor. "Itajaí", named after the Brazilian city, distinguishes itself with a funked, crunchy sound and skippy percussive punctuation. Over in Japan, McDonnell takes a slyer approach with "Maruyamacho" and "Tokyo Station", combining a kinetic pulse with on atmospheric textures. Then the beat gets darker with "Union Station", covered in industrial debris. Finally, "Holywell Lane" is marked by dubby pads and a handmade feel with a syncopated rhythm, ending the journey.
But wait, all these track titles refer to different locations across the globe. If we're playing international gigs, how are we supposed to use our bike? Don't worry, theres plenty of room in the private jet.
