RWN – Mystic Manners EP (w. Vinyl Speed Adjust Remix) [Midas Touch]
The fifth vinyl-only instalment to arrive from Romanian record label Midas Touch features three fresh tracks signed by French artist RWN and a remix from local duo Vinyl Speed Adjust, with the artwork being provided by Boruz Bogdan. Founded in 2019 by Macarie, the imprint so far published forward-thinking EPs from Chrivu, Maifaunu and Sonohat, an amazing Various Artists compilation with Rojid, Abel Soleil, Boyband, Vlad Arapasu and Cerec, as well as a long-awaited LP from label head himself delivered through MDT LTD series. Focused on minimal and microhouse, Erwan Goudard aka RWN is well-known for his releases with Fake Society, Abduction and Moulinet, as well as for his engaging DJ sets or podcast recordings.
Side A opens with the title track “Mystic Manners”, a swinging stripped-down rhythm elegantly flavoured with subtle glitches and twists, intriguing vocal samples and spacious breakdowns. We all remember this track from Crihan‘s set at Sunwaves a couple of years ago, so it’s really nice to finally see it being released. Following, “Transitory State” picks up the pace and delivers a warm, introspective sound designed with hypnotic chords and textures, engaging drumming patterns and smooth variations. On the flipside we first find the original mix of “Prerexquisit”, an uplifting composition that constantly builds tension through its ever-evolving narrative, heavily modulated vocal samples and futuristic effects while the remix provided by Vinyl Speed Adjust breaks the classic 4 by 4 vibe of the release with some sneaky broken beats. Highly recommended for nights and mornings alike.
