Mumdance and Logos present Proto, a collection of future-facing club tracks that, against the odds, also provides a deep and involving experience for the listener. Proto focuses on the very brief sparks of innovation when new scenes were just forming and genre rules and paradigms were still gray areas; the early bleep track days when imported American techno was starting to be appropriated by the UK, the '93-'94 proto era when hardcore was morphing into jungle and later, when the darker sound of tech-step reared its mechanical, dystopian head. All of this is underpinned with "Wot Do U Call It?" grime sensibilities and Mumdance and Logos's trademark sonic disorientation. Mumdance and Logos concentrate on taking the moods and colors created by these leaps forward in sound and twisting them into something new, keeping in line with the futuristic visions of the originators. Both producers had a banner 2014, launching their label Different Circles and spearheading a movement of what Logos calls "spatially untethered club trax," dubbed "weightless" by the duo. Mumdance took up a residency on Rinse FM; went B2B with Tectonic founder Pinch on their acclaimed mix release (TEC 018CD), about which Resident Advisor claimed "no one else is putting music together quite like this" in a 4.0/5 review; and was selected to perform at the Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo. Logos, aside from appearing with the Boxed crew across London, had his track "Metropolis" lead off the compilation Keysound Recordings Presents... Certified Connections (LDN 050CD/LP). Not to mention that FACT named Mumdance's Twists and Turns (2013) as number 31 and Logos's Cold Mission (LDN 042CD/LP, 2013) as number 27 in its "100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far" list.
