Helmed by Trouw resident Nuno Dos Santos, the fledgling Something Happening Somewhere imprint today releases its fourth effort, the Black Mambo EP, from Dutch artist Sigward. Described by the label as an "arpeggiated beast," Sigward's "MX86" serves as the new record's digital bonus track. Beginning from a muted bass sequence, "MX86" builds into a dark and driving affair, one propelled by crisp drum machine rhythms which charge forward as the producer allows his arpeggio lines to come further to life. Out today, Sigward's Black Mambo EP—which includes remixes from Simon Garcia and Scott Fraser—can be previewed after the jump.
