It's been a while since Michael "Soulphiction" Baumann and Nick Reiff delivered any new Manmadescience material. This two-tracker isn't brand new, both tracks having been recorded way back in the early 2000s. Neither has been released before, though, so there's plenty for fans to get excited about. "The Blues 1997" is perhaps typical of their early work, fixing dubbed-out electronics, distant flutes and blasts of accordion with drifting blues vocals and hissing jazz-house grooves. The looser "Phase", meanwhile, sounds like an afro-centric deep house take on breezy dub disco - all jazzy guitars, loose percussion and heavy dub FX.
