RELEASE RADAR: Mano Le Tough Shares New Single “Together” From New Album At The Moment

Irish producer and DJ Mano Le Tough releases the new single, “Together,” from his forthcoming album, At The Moment, out August 20th on DJ Koze’s Pampa Records. Following “Aye Aye Mi Mi” and “No Road Without a Turn,” “Together” is energetic and club-ready. It’s about a feeling of rave nostalgia, which is reflected in its instrumentation. Oscillating synth is layered over a thumping beat, and the track shortly after transforms with filtered vocals and bright, staccato sounds. "I wrote ‘Together’ just before the pandemic hit, after watching a Sven Vath video at Love Parade and thinking about the passing of youth and those moments lost in time,” says Mano. “When the pandemic arrived it made the tune hit harder on an emotional level. It’s about togetherness and equally about separation." After more than a decade of releases and touring, Mano has spent the past year at home in Zurich, rearing his young family and focusing on the positives of 14 months without performing, amid the uncertainty of the pandemic. In the face of horror, Mano channelled inspiration. The album shows Mano’s modes of expression evolving. The synths and rhythms common to earlier works are now complemented with less familiar sounds and influences; jangling guitars and sun-bleached chords, overlapping melodies and sci-fi soundtrack pads with hip hop beats. With At The Moment, the follow-up to 2015’s Trails, those struggles have produced a record which balances the ambivalence of the current moment, with wistful streaks of unguarded optimism.
