ALBUM REVIEW

Buje Mane

I Quit

Released November 2016

I Quit is a seven-track EP from Buje Mane. He’s got a cool, slow, loose spitting style that sounds a bit like freestyle, backed by minimal, unobtrusive beats playing through broken speakers, distorted tape and recording machinery that keeps running out of batteries. These a short bursts: most songs here clock in under two minutes. Both “Long Sleeve” and “Pants” starts at half speed, and experiment with speed and expectations. The track I keep coming back to is the hypnotically repetitive “Red Zone” and its dancing piano. Inventive stuff here.
