We’re back and this time we mean business. Coming up this week, Posthuman, live from the studio.

IN SESSION
Ahead of the new album, Syn Emergence (coming this summer on Balkan Vinyl) Posthuman headed down to the Mantis Radio studios to give up a unique and exclusive live performance.

Posthuman is cousins Richard Bevan and Joshu Doherty. Based in Edinburgh, Scotland and London, England.

Their style is unrestricted by genre moving from techno, electro, and breaks, to post-rock, IDM, and ambient. However, their overall signature sound is often dark, brooding and melancholic.

Their debut release in 2000 was a series of hand made CDs simply called “Posthuman” (though better known by the colour of the card inserts – grey, black, blue and brown) which were sold at live shows and via Rough Trade and Smallfish Records in London. The duo then went on to host a number of parties in an abandoned underground train station in London between 2001 and 2004, and founded their own label Seed Records with which they released 3 albums and several other releases of their own and other artists material. They also were the first act on Manchester based electronica label Skam on their SMAK series.

Doherty left Seed Records to help relaunch UK techno imprint B12 Records in 2006, and now runs London clubnight ‘I Love Acid‘. He also is a member of modern classical / electronica crossover outfit Digitonal, and rave / hardcore breaks duo AGT Rave Cru.

Seed Records continues under the stewardship of Bevan and long time collaborator Bruce McClure, whose spoken word pieces feature extensively throughout Posthuman’s output.

Check out this stunning video previewing the Syn Emergence album (the video is by Bevan).
