- Semtek's label will release the Detroit producer's first LP in April.
Don't Be Afraid will release Gentium, the first album from Detroit artist Manuel Gonzales, AKA MGUN.
Gonzales, who we profiled back in 2013, hasn't released any music in a couple of years. He'll return with an LP for Semtek's label on April 1st. "About half of these tracks were made in my childhood home between 2007 and 2010," says Gonzales. "Most were recorded on cassette then digitized on a Windows millennium edition PC. I would record these to the standard WAV recorder you can find in the sound preferences, which from there it was possible to use primitive effects to manipulate the audio file."
He adds: "The other half were produced in my current home studio, using somewhat of the same system I used back then, one take for the most part. There is hardly any multi-tracking involved with any of my productions. I use a basic WAV editor to manipulate recordings as well as various analog recording mediums beforehand." Gentium will see release on vinyl and digital formats.
