Act Now is Tarquin Manek (from a kaleidoscopic set of projects associated with Blackest Ever Black, Low Company and so much more) and Trevor (Total Control’s James Vinciguerra).
The product of a bout of shared living conditions, the record frames Trevor’s familiar frantic programming with globby dub-luggage and a sublime soloing clarinet across ‘side now’ and ‘side then’.
‘Louis Adonis’ is the busier of the two tracks, eventually winding itself up into a tinny jungle tekno rhythm, while ‘Wow Factor’ makes Manek’s clarinet its focus as Trev’ leans into the slower pace with spoken-word wonders and bent electronics.
Includes a bonus insert featuring interviews with Line Music and Altered States Tapes.
