After Treanor performed at Nyege Nyege Festival in 2018, and spent a month at Nyege Nyege’s Boutique Studio, he became inspired by singeli – a type of fast paced Tanzanian dance music – later bringing the genre’s energy to File Under UK Metaplasm.
“I’m still focused on making functioning dance music for clubs, but I’m really interested in how far you push that before it’s just like – no,” explains Treanor.
File Under UK Metaplasm follows Planet Mu’s release of East Man’s Prole Art Threat album – one of our favourite releases from July.
