MUSAR is honoured to welcome Bulgaria's electro-synth pioneer MANASYt with a new five-track EP, the first in a three-part series. 'Reality Defense Department' will be the Bulgarian's first new material since 2012.

Petar Tassev aka MANASYt, hails from the twilight zone. Growing up with the blacks swans in the forest of communist Bulgaria, listening to metal and hardcore music then interpreting the moody, roughness together with inspirations from electronic new-wave music to a raw, pure and dark adventure bubbling with madness.

'Reality Defense Department' is a future horror movie soundtrack.The first track 'Memory Imprints' is a pure psychedelic-trip into the mental clinic for clockwork
orange droogs, while the second track 'Mobile Pharmacy' evokes an apocalyptic alien attack.'Orthodox Spanking' is a dark, wayward fetish party electro track full of post-punk elements, fitting for an artist given to performing live in a rubber 'gimp' mask.

A pair of remixes are supplied by Brooklyn's wonder girl 'Via App' with a deep, dark and gothic techno rework for the late dazed hours of the morning and Norwich's kept secret, Wax Stag (an occasional collaborator with Bibio and Clark) that delivers a dreamy, cosmic twist that will linger in your consciousness for a long, long time to come.
