Night Young label head, Muning, is back with a vibrant EP entitled Cuerpo B. The five tracks collected here were plucked from sessions as long ago as 2015 and as recently as just last year. Despite being recorded so sporadically over the past six years, the tracks form a cohesive whole which displays Muning's varied and complex production styles.
Each of the tracks presented on Cuerpo B are deeply personal, warm, and evocative. From the shuffling, propulsive opener "Autoestima" to the yearning, heartfelt lilt of "Through The Hourglass" to the glimmering, effervescent funk of "Calvary Hotel" Muning wears his heart on his sleeve while painting scenes of love, loss, hope, and frustration.
The EP ebbs and flows nicely as it progresses; creating peaks and valleys, dark days and picturesque sunrises. Each bit of delightfully sunny synth melody is perfectly counterbalanced by a mournful sample or emotionally impactful chord progression. Muning manages to deftly combine elements of house, new age, ambient, and funk to create something unique, impactful, and necessary.
