Second Circle continue their series of Modern tribal 12s, with a first from Dazion. “Be A Man” is upbeat Afro-Electronics. Song mixes with 21st Century bass rumbles, House hi-hats, bird chatter, and snaking synths. Timbales rattling against its latin tempo. “Rigola” slows things to a skank. “Dancing In The Future” switches its singer from Lagos to somewhere to the east of Europe (sorry languages aren’t my strong point), with Sci-Fi keys and a popping drum machine rhythm.

First brought to our attention by Invisible City Editions, Dazion`s “Don`t Get Me Wrong” is released by Second Circle on January 27th.
