U is a producer and DJ currently living in London. Previous records for Man Make Music have proven suitable for the club as well as home listening, while a collaboration with Babe, Terror as BTU for Erol Alkan’s Phantasy label was varyingly described as “pleasure with a sense of dread” (The Line of Best Fit) and “akin to having five songs playing simultaneously on your computer” (The Guardian). 2014 saw U’s debut ‘Haven In A Heartfelt World’ EP described as "giddy electronic fuzz that packs the subtlest of punches descends into dense glitch noise then returns triumphant gritty and melodic” (Crack Magazine) and “distorted dreamstates” (Ransom Note). After the deranged chamber­edits of 'Vienna' for Where To Now?, U returns to the well­trodden path between flattery and irreverence in dance music with a special edition 2-­track 12" for Phantasy Sound. 'Friendly Ghost' enters with a splay of combat­bongos, a thin synthetic aura draws over the fluctuating rhythms before a strangely negative bassline sets the pace in nu­wave perpetual motion, inevitably spiraling back on itself into a clattering reversal. On the flip 'Ascension Hymn' rushes headlong into a mechanical shunter, abruptly dragged back by a frail and singular voice reciting an uncertain mantra of self­fulfilment over this blunted hardcore epic spanning 13 minutes. Pressed to heavyweight vinyl, designed and printed by the artist in an edition of 300ish.
