Man Power, formerly known only through primarily club-focused singles and 12”s, here turns in a full length album. The palette is broader here, swirling sounds and approaches into a ‘proper album’ form, where themes and stylistic shifts can be traced across the whole. Out on Correspondant.

8/10 Andrew Customer review, 31st May 2015
Man Power has largely been known for his more club focused recorded output up to now - check the superb 'Flaccid Tracks' ep for a fine example of this. With this album, however he has stepped away from the dance floor (not entirely but broadly) to produce a mature, varied record of maturity and durability. There is clearly an electronic pulse that reminds you of his house and disco passions, but it is tempered with a refined, thoughtful approach. 2nd track boys beware could be a Carpenter tune, its synths suggesting a slight menace beneath the beat.
'Forget To Remember' is a cracking tune, upbeat enough for a discerning dancefloor, but with enough depth for home listening or morning after reflections, it put me in mind of early Orbital. 'Hunting Swan' is a downtempo contemplative track, nice keys providing a human balance against the electronics. 'Inside' uses strings of life keys over a beatless backdrop to somehow create feelings of euphoria and thoughtfulness simultaneously. 'Tofu Ist Der Teufel' reminds us of Man Powers house pedigree though, one of a couple of ckub ready tracks.
Overall a great album, one that unlike many by producers better known for their singles hangs together as a coherent work.
