Blu Joins DJ Manipulator on “ARP Revisited”
Massachusetts producer-turntablist DJ Manipulator flips synth sounds and crazy percussion on his latest single, “ARP Revisited,” which features hard-hitting guest verses from Blu and Louie Gonz.
These two gifted emcees from opposite coasts—Blu hails from L.A., and Gonz from Worcester, MA—previously collaborated in a similar setting, though with a darker and grittier sound. It was on the snarling “This Sound,” a standout leak off Gonz and Manip’s 2017 collaborative effort, The Loops. There’s still a murky smog-like feeling to the rhymes on “ARP Revisited,” but they’re juxtaposed by slightly brighter synth-laden production.
Manipulator skillfully blends, scratches, and chops up other warped electronic sounds across his solo release, The Synth Tape, which dropped earlier this year and contains the original “ARP.” It boasts even more speaker-knocking instrumentals of this track’s ilk, and heads who like what they’re hearing on here will need to get familiar. And not only with The Synth Tape, but The Loops and everything else with Manipulator’s name on it. Dude is becoming one of the underground’s best-kept secrets.
“ARP Revisited” is available now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms through Backcourt Records.
Be sure to keep The Synth Tape in rotation and follow the up-and-coming producer on Spotify.
“[The Beat Tape] tape is heavily inspired by my love for synthesizer based records. it’s a sonic adventure into the sounds and synthesizers that inspired the great composers like, Bruce Haack, Tomita, Jean-Michel Jarre.”
