Mantra / Myriadd – All Is Mind [WOD013]

Weapons of Desire are back with the next installment of raw percussion and the dirty bass lines that we have all grown to know and love. Five brilliant 707 and 808 driven techno stompers from the eminently proficient Craig Stainton over two sides of wax in both his Mantra and Myriadd production guises.

Myriadd – A New Day [PT008]

The 8th release of Polybius Trax will be an EP of Myriadd, name which Craig Stainton distils acid house that evokes us to the golden age of the genre. Analogue drums, droning acid bass and 303-bating riffs. Delivers the hard-hitting jack-attack that is “A New Day’ the utterly Chicago- fuelled. Melancholy synth and ethereal melodies that ascend and dissolve into neon clouds. infectiously funky drums, warm, enveloping synth atmospherics and elevated by lush, bass acid lines that make the body sweat on the dance floor.

Myriadd – Time Will Tell [CR1267]

Myriadd is Craig Stainton, a producer that has also released as Acid Phreex and Mantra on labels such as Pinkman, Signals and Creme Organization, to where he returns now with a new four track EP that explores plenty of mystic house and techno territory. Kicking off the release is Time Will Tell, which is a nicely frayed, rough round the edges bit of house music with a deep and lashing bassline as well as some rich and rounded melodic hooks. Forever Yours kicks that bit harder and more insistently but bares the same sense of misty melodic lushness. Various lines fly about like spirits in the night and bring a haunting sense of melancholy to proceedings before B1 Gold Section hiccups and stutters pleasingly. Like everything here, its a fairly rich, dense track that layers everything on top of each other with little break for breath. Final track At One is backed with the sort of serene pads that have you day dreaming about the future as jacked up beats kick below and all manner of synths whip around in the foreground. House music never sounded as magical as when in the hands of the talented Myriadd.

Myriadd – The Way We Were [SIG.MMXII.VII]

Two stunning slices of mercurial and heartfelt British Techno from two outstanding northern producers that cuts across the M62 corridor like a night drive into oblivion. A 10” black hit of space, lovingly designed for the dark, sweaty basements of provincial, post-industrial towns and the cold light of day in the car park of Knutsford Services.

Mantra – Out of the Aether [AACID005]

The Abstract Acid series continues its exploration into the depths of acid with a relentless 303 assault from UK-based machine operator, Mantra – four rugged tracks of distorted, crackling beats and low slung bass lines that are just crying out to be ripped through the speakers of a dark, filthy warehouse.
