London-based label Not An Animal have never been constrained by sound, style or genre; that said, there’s always a signature mood that strings their releases together. Focusing on a shared artistic approach, co-founders Chris Stoker and Andy Bainbridge have built a healthy discography of friends and peers who’ve brought a touch of the cosmic, the squelchy and the down right hypnotic to each label outing.
Offering up another intoxicating dose of all the above is Lithuania-based producer Ponty Mython, who’s also known for his releases under the moniker Pletnev. Adding to a lengthy string of EPs for Futureboogie, Omena, Dirt Crew and Fina, on Onimano he flaunts his knack for tight-knit drum programming and dubwise atmospheres. In addition to the three original tracks, Not An Animal have enlisted Sex Tags Mania co-captain and Trush Mix curator DJ Fett Burger to put his own finesse on percussive-driven title track ‘Onimano X991’, which he morphs into an airy stress reliever for those wee after hours.
Onimano X991 will be available soon via Not An Animal Records.
