Manuel Darquart – Low Tide [Alzaya]


The low tide sits out in a sea of Balearic, dreamy goodness as the lunar force of Manuel Darquart gravitates the waves straight into Alzaya. Ambient pads rest among sun-soaked synths and that lately bassline all for the signature Manuel Darquart sound. Low Tide is the sister to a previous Manuel track of High Tide from their Infinite Pleasure EP, resembling all the same family traits.

The New Zealand duo now call London home, making records for many respected outfits such as WOLF and Childsplay. This time they join onto Milano’s Alzaya for the label first compilation featuring Cosmic Cherry, Tape Hiss, Akasha System and Nicodemo. Much like the Alzaya back catalogue, the compilation is flawless with Manuel’s track only the tip of album on repeat.
