  • Resilient poetics from the Manchester MC.

  • A key figure in Manchester's drum & bass scene, MC Fox has become somewhat of a vibes connoisseur. On "Lion Ting" he becomes king of his own internal jungle. "Dark times but I'm still vibesin," he chants, calloused by his past and unshaken by his present. Elsewhere, he flaunts an evocative songwriting talent, bringing a more jazzy and meditative vibe to the foray. With a marriage of rapid-fire breaks and pensive keys, Lenzman's productions have the same effect. They almost play with time, pushing and pulling into the ideal backdrop for Fox's resilient poetics. If you need a dose of motivation, "Lion Ting" will provide it in droves.
