Tom Marshall (aka Dam Mantle) is an audio and visual artist based in Glasgow. His refusal to temper his productions by deleting beats, reworking analogue synth jams and re-pitching vocals often explore what is absent as much as what is heard. Tom’s interest in “working at 150BPM, working with half speed and double speed...seeing how the body responds to that in a club environment” and his claim that all music is "folk music" connects with the reclamation of the past that movements like Juke and other Chicago House explore.
Dam Mantle's interpretation of the connections between sounds from the past and present included in this mix, the crusty dub of Dadawah, the "psychotomimetic collages" of Dem Hunger, the compact funk of Pavan, the meloncholic juke of DJ Earl are some indication of what has shaped his new record First Wave.
