Manu Delago: Handmade
Celebrated Hang player, percussionist, producer and composer Manu Delago releases his third solo album in January 2017. Metromonk finds this boundary-testing artist distilling and delicately exploring extremes of dynamics and mood; manipulating the Hang in experimental and inventive ways, the many voices and tones of this rare instrument are given top billing among a minimalistic palette of beats and acoustic sources.

This new music builds on an illustrious spell for Delago, whose ambitious 2015 LP Silver Kobalt won over tastemakers from BBC 6Music’s Tom Ravenscroft and Don Letts to Radio 2’s Alex Lester, Nitin Sawhney and Jamie Cullum (who snapped him up for a Maida Vale session), and was also loved by i-D, Clash, DJ Mag and more; the Silver Kobalt Tour boasted more than 80 thrilling live shows with his band.

The world’s leading Hang player, Manu Delago has had more than five million YouTube views and featured heavily in BBC Radio 4’s recent documentary on the instrument. While his last album saw him diversifying with multiple layers of synths, electronic production and a wide range of instruments, Metromonk restores his virtuosic Hang playing to centre stage.
