|2.||"Walk With Me"|
The final release of the year on Will Bankhead's excellent label The Trilogy Tapes comes from Detroit-based producer M GUN. The man otherwise known as Manuel Gonzales has already impressed us in 2012 with 12?s for Wild Oats and Don't Be Afraid, The Near Future EP is possibly our favourite release from the producer yet. Those expecting the kind of raw Detroit techno he's become known for will be all over tracks like the deep mid-tempo cosmics of "2?, the rippling percussion and growling bassline of "The Race" and the tracky Millsian jack of "Tiles", but the real surprises come in the form of "Walk With Me", an edit of what sounds like some dusty 60s psychedelia, and "Flutter's Brother", a track which sounds like a knackered, decayed old Green Velvet demo.
