about

Lebanese electronic musician Munma released his first full-length album "Previews & Premises" in 2010. The album is in fact a compilation of Nawfal's work between 2006-2010. "Some of it was meant to appear on previous Munma releases," Nawfal explains in the sleeve notes, "but eventually kept aside for later inclusion."

Perhaps made with a little less urgency than his previous EPs, "Previews and Premises" is nonetheless an absorbing listen, showcasing the range of Nawfal's vision. Opening number "Soft Integration" positions a tremulous flute over a science-fiction array of bleeps and burps. As in his previous EP's, Nawfal uses snatches of recorded speech: on "The Alchemist," an extended diatribe on musical aesthetics from a crisp-voiced gentleman is woven in and out of a prowling, moody beat and glitch-dominated electronic tones. "Ear Damage" combines a propulsive, punchy beat with drifting curtains of sound, while "Attention Disorder" showcases eccentric electro.

"Previews and Premises" signals a notable talent, in full command of his material.
