Free Thing (MWL Extended Edit)

A 1 track crossover jazz single (4m 22s) — released March 4th 2022 on Freestyle Records

Taken from their stellar third album Many Worlds, released at the beginning of 2021 on Freestyle Records, "Free Thing" leaned heavily into the spiritual side of Menagerie's sound. Though while it's poetic meditation on freedom - set to a backdrop of insistent percussion, double bass and brooding piano - was arguably the thematic centrepiece of the LP, it was also somewhat of a short interlude tucked in amongst the spawling instrumentals found elsewhere on the record. Here, David Lyn provides us with a much needed extended edit under his MWL moniker, with a subtle and organic lightness of touch bringing to mind some of Theo Parrish's jazz-oriented works.

Menagerie is the Melbourne-based Jazz ensemble founded by producer, songwriter, guitarist, DJ and recording artist Lance Ferguson, also the driving force behind The Bamboos, Lanu, Rare Groove Spectrum and Machines Always Win. Many Worlds was released in January 2021 on Freestyle, on digital, LP & CD formats.
