- Last year's Mumdance & Logos Present Different Circles was a striking compilation of grime-anchored experiments. Many of the tracks took sharp left turns, but the Mumdance & Logos collaborations stood out. One was the luminous "Cafe Del Mar," which, in January, reemerged on the Weightless Vol. 2 EP. On their latest 12-inch, the duo take another choice cut, "FFS," and pair it with their first bit of new material since 2015's Proto.
Where "Cafe Del Mar" was about dazzling cinematics, "FFS" is memorable for a different reason: humor. The production has all the edgy bits—weighty bass, weird arrangements, laser-cut sound design—of Mumdance & Logos's usual work, but its most eyebrow-raising feature is a man who blurts out, "Aww, come on, mate," like he's the slow-witted butt of a joke. "BMT" takes it up a notch on the other side. It flips between sparse and full-throttle, focused on a steely single drum with a surprise nosedive into warehouse-ready noise.
