Following the success of their debut EP 'A1017," the shadowy Portuguese electronic production duo MUTUAL returns with another confident and expansive 3-track EP that showcases their rough and rugged fusion of deconstructed breaks, distorted jungle, immersive house/techno, and atmospheric ambient styles.
'After Finitude' kicks off with evocative lead single “Archê,” a nearly 7-minute journey through unexpected samples, invigorating breaks, nostalgic synths, skittering rhythms, and an exceptionally dynamic arrangement. “Contingency pt. I” and “Contingency pt. II” fill the B-side, a pair of interconnected tracks that place an enhanced focus on their rich compositional structures, deceptively delicate melodies, blistering percussive techniques, and magnificent flourishes into ambient, noise, and neo-classical terrain.
Displaying another sharp and deep immersion into their distinctive sonic world, MUTUAL further proves their status as an exciting, evocative duo.
