Introducing On Man
London-Based Producer Signs to Houndstooth
& Shares Single & Video “Squares and Triangles (feat. F-M-M-F)”
Introducing On Man, whose previous collaborations include Giggs, Darq E Freaker, Zebra Katz and Mr Hudson amongst others. On Man has just signed to Houndstooth and shared his first single & video “Squares and Triangles“, featuring fellow London-based rapper F-M-M-F alongside a video directed by Ian Roderick Gray.
Speaking about signing to Houndstooth, On Man said “I’ve been a big fan of the label and their artists for a long time now, so teaming up with them is a dream. It’s exciting to explore where things can go now I’ve got a bunch of brilliant people to work with.”
And on the new single, he added “Squares and Triangles was a turning point for the project – the first track I finished where I felt like things were heading in the right direction. F-M-M-F’s fantastic vocals hooked me straight away. They read almost like a film, exploring the tension of a doomed relationship when incompatible edges collide, crack and crumble amongst the lies.”
Fierce and dominating. The abrasive tones merge, clashing together to develop this brutal atmosphere whilst the lyrics and vocal notes command your entire attention. This immense intrigue grows with the expressive landscape, the tonality of the intense notes assist with this overall mood, the dark ensemble is emphasized by the power and force that F-M-M-F brings to the exploration.
On Man’s creative roots lie deep. An artist with a unique gift for sound design, he’s able to conjure perfect pop songs and then corrode them, revealing the emotional truths underneath. An electronic artist with a human touch, he’s worked in the studio for an array of other artists, as well as delivering huge cinematic soundtrack projects, all while pursuing his own solitary agenda. “Squares and Triangles” marks the first step of this personal journey and more will follow later this year.
