Way back in 2012, even before he released his self-titled debut album, Jaakko Eino Kalevi teamed up with his good friend Long-Sam to make an album under the name Man Duo, ‘Amateurs de Vérité’.
Now, after a long five years, they’ve now announced plans to release a new album under the name! Man Duo’s new record ‘Orbit’ will be out on 16th August via Kaya Kaya. Sami Toroi, aka Long-Sam, said: “Man Duo sounds more like a band instead of just two individuals. We used to go by the name Jaakko Eino Kalevi & Long-Sam – now it’s easier to see this as a unit of its own without confusing it with our solo careers”. Jaakko adds: “We’re more professional now but still have the spirit of amateurs”. See the tracklisting below.
1. One Formula
2. Ile’s Dream
3. The Middle feat. Sean Nicholas Savage
4. What If It Falls
5. Tanyan Teema
6. Unter Vier Augen
8. The Boss
As well as announcing some details of the new LP, Man Duo have also shared its first single, ‘What If It Falls’, a pulsating combination of techno-inspired beats, cosmic synths and languid, atmospheric vocals.
