Premiere: mmph blends summertime hedonism and rave synths on ‘Serenade’


Tri Angle has a reputation for pushing experimental, bleeding-edge sonics, and their newest signing – mmph – is no different.

Boasting a CV that includes producing for the likes of David Byrne and serpentwithfeet, the classically-trained cellist put out his debut EP, ‘Dear God’, on the label earlier this year.

The 24-year-old producer now returns with the five-tracked ‘Serenade’, where he’s given each of the EP’s five songs a different classical trope to create ‘Wagnerian suites in miniature’.

The title cut, which Dummy is pleased to premiere below, is based around a ‘courtship song often played in the open air’. Blending guitar plucks and skittering synths, it’s an unlikely mixture of summertime hedonism and rave aesthetics.

The ‘Serenade’ EP will be released by Tri Angle on September 7th digitally and on tape cassette (limited to 100 copies) and vinyl (500 copies), and can be pre-ordered here.
