Bassment Sessions April 13 2011: Nymania & M.A.N.D.Y

By SpinnZinn posted Apr 13, 2011 at 05:35 PM

This week we bring back old time favorite, and previous host of The Underground, Nymania!

Along side our good friend we have a guest mix all the way from Germany by M.A.N.D.Y

Catch Bassment Sessions Thursday Night from 9pm-12am


Nymania sprang onto the Miami Electronic Scene a few years back under the alias of BunnyFuzz, making the people catch a funny buzz. After graduating from heavy electro, dubstep, ghetto-tech, and D&B sets came the name change along with more melodic, deep, and rhythmic sensibilities. Previously having been a resident DJ at several downtown nightclubs, and the host of WVUM's "The Underground" show on friday nights, Nymania returns to the airwaves to move Miami with an elevating blend of his favorite tracks.



Get Physical’s iconic Body Language mixes have all functioned like snapshots in time, capturing defining moments of club sounds throughout the series’ six-year history. M.A.N.D.Y., of course, started it all, and along with DJ T.’s edition, Body Language volumes 1 & 2 were statements of intent for Get Physical’s present and future. Jesse Rose and Dixon revealed their own idiosyncratic sub-strains of house; Château Flight and Junior Boys showcased French Touch and Canadian pop sensibilities. Matthew Dear and Modeselektor played up their own unique knack for song and melody, and DJ Hell imbued his mix with his iconic personality and flair.
For the 10th milestone edition of Body Language, Get Physical is going back to its roots, and back to its origins, placing Body Language Vol. 10 in the gifted hands of Philip Jung & Patrick Bodmer, best known as M.A.N.D.Y. - Get Physical co-founders, lifelong friends, masterful DJs and expert selectors. M.A.N.D.Y. traverse a range of moods and diverse dancefloor sounds with Body Language Vol. 10, expertly programming a pool of hand-picked tracks with ease and unpredictability. Through deep, thrumming tech house, vocal excursions, Detroit electro, touches of disco and smatterings of downtempo, M.A.N.D.Y. demonstrate yet again why they are so in-demand on the international club and festival circuit. 
Starting with the thundering piano chords and jazz percussion of Brandt Brauer Frick’s “Paparazzi” they seamlessly mix into the pensive melodies and underwater trumpet of Nicolas Jaar’s remix of Maceo Plex’s “Gravy Train“, which then bleeds into the deep swing, disco bass and cowbells of Kid Bliss’ “Discoshit”. Extrawelt’s deep dub tones on “My Stupid” make for an unexpectedly harmonious union with “Home” - an exclusive cut from M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade that marks the foursome’s first collaboration for several years - before the latin percussion and uplifting synth melody of Elon’s “Clap Back” breaks free, racing towards a hands-in-the-air peak. Carl Craig’s storming rework of Ramadanman & Appleblim’s “Void 23” is a perfectly-pitched follow-up, and Roman Flügel’s remix of Darabi’s “Top Drop” takes it into sinister territory with flares and smears that break the melodic accents out of their boundaries.  After taking a sharp left turn into the murky industrial sounds of Brendon Moeller’s “Mainline” (Robag’s Relokk Tokk Mikks), the deep drama is juxtaposed by DJ Koze’s trademark eccentricity, as “Der Wallach” bumps with loose-limbed jazziness and quirky arrangements.
Patrice Bäumel’s electro inspired “To Insanity And Beyond” marks the new chapter, and paves the way for Detroit pioneers Model 500, with their jacking electro breaks number “OFI”. More programming surprises abound, as the broken beats melt into the deep funk of “Thieve $crilla”, the handiwork of Boston It Boys Soul Clap, Tanner Ross and Sergio Santos as SECT. De Signer’s “Suicide Girl” follows, with the Robin Porter & Subb-an treatment that fuses the neon synth pop of the original with sleek tech house, and the atmosphere is continued with Franck Roger’s “Egotrippin” and Harada’s “Conscious Movement”. M.A.N.D.Y. proceed to take it deep underground, with Marc Houle’s wintry and otherwordly “The Next”, before lightening the mood again with a snippet of Nicolas Jaar’s “Space Is Only Noise If You Can See”. The shimmering electronica melodies of Estroe’s 'Phat' Remix of Rocco Caine’s “Fatand 50” gleam and shine, before the track and the mix are pitched down into the suspenseful swansong, Kollektiv Turmstrasse’s “Addio Addio”. Body Language Vol. 10 follows the precedent M.A.N.D.Y. set down with At The Controls, Fabric 38, Renaissance: The Mix Collection, and Body Language Vol. 1: it is an immersive, intriguing and irresistible snapshot in time of two undisputed veterans of house and techno, who will forever remain at the top of their game.
