Primed and ready for Summer, Manuel Rodriguez, who is no stranger to the MYR family steps up to deliver another substantial contribution to the German-born dance label with his Needle and Thread EP for MYR14. The first song in the Ep titled "The Preface" is typical of Manuel`s style which we have come to love so much. Crisp percussion sits perfectly on top of an analogue b-line that oozes funk and soul with elements of Jazz creeping in subtly through the progression of the track. A classic 7 series styled drum kit brings Manuel's musical influences in the form of soul and funk to the forefront which are layered beautifully with interwoven analogue warmth. This kind of approach creates a deceptively large amount of energy showing Manuel's versatile skill of building grooves for the dancefloor. Leading into the title song, Needle and Thread, the track takes on a darker feel instantly creating an engaging listening experience from the very beginning of the song. Percussive elements take precedence with big, dirty drums creating a sweaty low-end groove which is perfect for any summertime get down. Due for release on all major digital portals on the 02.08.2019 we can't wait to welcome Manuel back with another stellar addition to labels growing archive of quality music.
