Killer debut on the Stupid Human label from System Status and Hugh Mane! The more attentive diggers out there will recognise System Status from a pair of excellent 12"s on his own Night Sweats label and he's also contributed to the Horn Wax cause. "Hands" finds the Cambridge based producer in fine form, laying down a crisp, boogie indebted production that has one of the warmest basslines in some time. Inskwel is a good choice to remix the track, given his own boogie flecked tastes and the Australian producer turns in a wonderfully gritty slowed down take that complements the original. Following his debut for Gerd Janson's Running Back, (not so) mysterious Hugh Mane mans the B Side with two diverse cuts - "Up Synth Creek With A Greek" is based around a naggingly familiar recycled melodic refrain that will nestle right in your head.
