Bulgarian transplanted in China, Petar Tassev enjoys challenging himself in a match against himself since it is only he who hides behind the scenes of MANASYt and Sam Lowry. Anchored to a style in which rhythmic geometrisms and horrific harmonic sequences converge in equal measure, the artist wisely interprets the difficult times we live in, marred by problems of all kinds that make the rave age seem like a very distant and above all unrepeatable era. The nine tracks recorded on the disc, four on one side under the name MANASYt and five on the other as Sam Lowry, without titles, lead by the hand in a sort of Hades, resorting to both rhythmic pulsations and gothic tapestries, passing over dissonant doodles which really seem to pay tribute to Robert Hood's “Minus” (B1). Released last autumn, the disc was withdrawn due to an imperfect pressing and replaced with a new edition, apparently the last for Bunker Records which would end its run definitively. It is worth remembering, however, that Guy Tavares has already managed once to resurrect his creature from the ashes, in 1998, so it would not be surprising if in the future this happened again to the delight of admirers and supporters around the globe.
