Featured Guest

Our guest today is Slave To Society. Andrew Bowen returns to Mantis Radio, having first guested back in 2017 as one half of Manchester’s hard techno outfit AnD.

In late 2019 Bowen decided to march solo, returning to his hardware production roots with Slave To Society.

Stepping away from the straight pound he made with Dimi in AnD, embracing the chaos of broken rhythm and breakbeats whilst exploring the extremities of the hardcore sound. It’s not about tempo, but about the melding of industrial and experimental noise with the electronic structures of techno and jungle.

His mix for us today gets into some of the artists and influences on his sound with a gnarly, twisted, selection of rhythm and dank pressure.
