Introducing AfrikanAmerikan! With the upcoming release of their debut EP on Ba-Doop, we threw a few questions to the boys to see what makes them tick. The EP drops on the 15th May exclusive to Traxsource, then Beatport and the rest a fortnight later. See below for previews on our Soundcloud

So you guys met in Byron Bay, what drew you both together to start writing as AfrikanAmerikan?
Shared Love for minimal Techno and hardware based music production.

Do you have a specific work-flow or method of producing together?
Normally we would just chill in a studio and start jamming until an idea jumped out then we would start building on that.

What are the prized pieces of production gear at AfrikanAmerikan HQ?

What other artists are you currently listening to?
Lorn, Landside, Nu, Stimming, Plastikman, (Always listening to some old school techno)

The Manuel Portio return to Ba-Doop delivering an EP on a much darker tip. Although still very much a Deep House EP, some of the sounds draw influences from darker Techno and even ambient Drum & Bass. Considering that one half of The Manuel Portio was involved in Live Drum & Bass act Kamuku, it’s probably not all that surprising. The title track “What You Get” features a dark rolling bass-line and sparse evolving pad sounds. Funk Nose started life under another name. Deep gritty bass-lines and big synth sounds. Passing Hours rounds out the 3 tracker quite nicely.

COMING SOON: Our second release brings the return of The Manuel Portio to Ba-Doop after their successful DeNote Records release. This time they deliver a stunning 2 track EP on a much deeper tip. The Australian duo bring a sense of refinement and depth to these tracks highlighting their versatility and musical influences.
The title track Rusty brings minimal 808 beats encompassed in a dark atmospheric layer with plenty of room for large reverbs and minimal vocals.
Lebedev was named after a Russian Prince (or so he tells us), more chilled deep house vibes on this track with a deep rolling bassline, ambient synth and vocal stabs.
