Announced directly by the man himself on Facebook last week: Mefjus’s new album Manifest will drop on Noisia’s Vision on April 26.
17 tracks deep, featuring no collaborations whatsoever, he describes the body of work as ‘Mefjus 2.0’. A staggering feat when you consider the detail and depth he explored his debut album concept Emulation three years ago.
“This new album is the product of a two year process,” he explains. “The LP reflects what I love about the diversity of drum & bass and all its sub genres as well as what I enjoy playing at clubs and festivals. It was crucial to me that this new chapter was a step up in content, sound design and song writing which influenced the decision to include only solo material and even master it myself. Manifest is Mefjus 2.0
The first sounds to come from the album are If I Could / Ringshifter. Both galvanised by Mefjus’s characterised bone-rattling sonic uncompromisation but sounding fresh at the same time, they hint at the chaos to come from the full album. We copped If I Could…
Mefjus will be launching the album with two key shows on the release date. April 26 will see him perform at Noisia Invites, Groningen (complete with live stream) while April 27 will see him celebrate the album in earnest at Fabriclive alongside Phace, Xtrah and Insideinfo & Kasra’s new Circuits project (see here for tickets)
Following the release Mefjus will be performing across Europe throughout the spring and summer. See his website for full dates and details.
