But I like it.", that's how Bruno defines the EP concept; a twisted mix of dub, triphop and downtempo. Influences go from Silver Apples, Peeping Tom and Primal Scream ("Shoot" is a version of "Trainspotting", from 'Vanishing Point' album) to the heavy dub of frenchmen High Tone and the trippy void of Massive Attack. Tracks are full of textures, effects and slow psychedelic sections. Manormouse's creation method is quite personal: "I programmed various drum sets and in almost all of them I use samples of faster bpm and go decelerating them, I also used a sample of a Sublime's tune in 'High State' and one dialogue sample from the Godfather movie ('Superstitious')" explains. All basslines, synths, melodica ('High State'), piano ('13th Floor') and textures, were made with a Midi Oxygen 8 keyboard, using synthsizers from Cubase and Reason softwares. The keyboard sequence in '13th Floor' was straightforwardly recorded. it sounds complex, but was total freestyle. Final master work was in charge of Raul Retrigger, breakcore's top producer and friend, adding extra weight to the production.
Sleeve's Artwork was done by Bruno himself, based on a photo taken by his wife Roberta Van De Velde. The item's title is taken from a text about some psychedelic 60s band, where it said one of the members 'had never fully recovered' from LSD's excess usage. And this is the central idea on the EP: after you listen it, your neurons will stay boiling and never be the same again. Read more on Last.fm.
