FBNM delivers its first blow with this sublime slice of deep house from Liverpoolʼs Andy Ash.
White Leaf sees Timmy Thomas - esque soulful vocals sitting on top of a growling bass washed with a deep detuned pad progression, a modern late night stomper.
Moodymanc takes White Leaf and extrapolates, further exploring itʼs dark palette, boosting the bass rhythms into a huge grooving low end and swapping out the wooden percussion for a drum machine complete with rolling rimshot and claps.
The flip side, 500 Motor, sees Andy bring about a more uplifting endeavour, matching percussion with the ever classic cosmic bloops, before subtly building into a ring modulated synth jam.
The digital release sees bonus track, X 22 - a stripped back mid tempo chugger rich in warped bass, deep transposed vocals and an authentic looping vinyl crackle.
