We are excited to premiere another track from Brazilian experimentalist MNTH, slamming experimental synths into live drum breaks. “Demanda E Despejo” is taken from his forthcoming ‘Iminente’ EP on London-based Mais Um.
The piercing synth riffs, reminiscent of Caribbean carnival steel pan melodies, unravel in real time around wildly energising syncopated drums, circulating in that gloriously grey area between jazz rhythms and jungle production. Co-produced by Paulo Dandrea and Rogério Martins from São Paulo post rock outfit, Hurtmold features on snare & congas.Support on Bandcamp
“Demanda E Despejo” means ‘Ask and Be Evicted’, a reference to Brazilian cult/skate documentary ‘Pedra Sobre Pedra’, which MNTH was invited to soundtrack with his brother, Guilherme, as well as Mauricio Takara (Pharoah Sanders, Damo Suzuki, Rob Mazurek).
According to MNTH, the EP title, ‘Iminente ‘ came from “this idea of something about to become real, concretized. You don’t know what, but something is going to happen soon and you can’t stop it, like tragedy or death. Vale do Anhangabaú is an area everybody knows something strange can happen anytime. It has this energy.”
