UMFANG Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
A full album of music from UMFANG, the producer behind the Discwoman label and the Technofeminism residency. Symbolic Use Of Light’s nine tracks are sleek, precise, and adventurous, mapping out a form of techno that is comfortable inverting the usual forms. Symbolic Use Of Light is released on Technicolour, a spin-off label of Ninja Tune.
I’m so glad that someone has had the gall to just call a release Riffs: the big surprise is that it isn’t a hard-rock band, but the slick and hazy untechno of UMFANG. She pointedly avoids the default 4/4 rhythms, taking lessons from the footwork world to make the dancers work for it. No doubt these 5 tracks will reward the effort in spades. 12” on 1080p.
