THE MAENADS:  OrpheusThe Maenads is the new project from Renegades of Jazz’s David Hanke and Kabanjak’s Ingo Möll and finds the pair venturing into the territory of atmospheric breakbeat electronica with current single Orpheus. Alright, don’t lose your heads (or tear anything to pieces – thank you, I’m here all week!) – but expect instead seven plus minutes of sweeping musical grandeur as lyric-less female vocals weave hauntingly in and out of a furious drum break. The single is the first to be taken off a forthcoming LP – the first time the pair have got around to collaborating despite having known each other for over ten years.
