New Single - Specific Ocean

We have a new release coming out on Lost Language on the 3rd November 2023! We can't write it better than the press release:

"THE MFA and Lost Language go back a good 20 years - from sweaty nights at Turnmills, to West London pub hang outs, and a subsequent 2004 release on our sister label PRECINCT, with the mighty MOTHERLOAD / SPHINX. Fast forward to 2023, and after some mutual love in the insta DM's and a very happy accident with some stems, we've finally bagged a mother-fucking original, the wonderful SPECIFIC OCEAN.

Fresh from releasing their debut album "Lights Out" on Traum Schallplatten, and an accompanying live show peppered with Border Community and Precinct fan faves, our boys Ali and Rhys are clearly in fine fettle. The MFA make the best noises, and we're spoilt here. A cinematic intro gives way to a huge gated riff, the rave dial turned all the way up (natch), before the wobbliest of whistles has us all floating off into the ether. 

To say we are bullish on this fast n' fresh underground trance sound would be an understatement, so to have two of our current favourite producers form a parallel tag team is a dream come true, with Claire's Accessories (Underzone, Harmless) and Astral Bandit (Area 127, FEED) morphing into ASTRAL ACCESSORIES for this very special two headed snake of a remix, which "Claire" described as Post Apocalyptic Balearic. Amen."

We are really excited to be playing our music live again, and especially to be going back to Cologne which we have great memories of. Hope to see faces new and old! You can get tickets here

The MFA - Live at Sonar 2006

Throw back Thursday way, way back to Sónar Festival 2006. Thanks to Neil Walker we have tracked down (some) of our live set from the main stage of Sonar 2006. You can listen here on The MFA Soundcloud. This gig was a real highlight for us but equally as terrifying as it was exciting playing in front of the most people we had ever seen plus coming on after Goldfrapp and before Miss Kittin!

There are loads of MFA era one tracks in there such as 'The Difference It Makes', 'Overhang', Dextro remix and 'Motherload' plus some of the ideas and sketches that became later MFA tracks more recently. Hope you enjoy!

The MFA - Live rehearsal

A couple of weeks ago we got together at Shepherdess to rehearse our new live show. You can watch 3 mins of clips where it was going as planned here!

Btw, have tables got lower or are our backs just less flexible since we were doing this every weekend for some reason…?!🪬🐻Get in touch if you want to find out more about our new live show.

‘Tracklist’. Difference It Makes, You Make Me Smile, Freedom24, Bear Likes To Rave plus a few little secret bits and bobs if you are really paying attention…😉Thanks to MFA superfan and DOP extraordinaire Phil Chambers for filming.

Press for 'Lights Out'

One of the best things about releasing 'Lights Out' has been the positive feedback we've had. It makes it very satisfying to think that our music is resonating with people in ways we intended (and some ways we didn't!)

Here is the obligatory round up of some of our favourite reviews for the album so far - you don't have to take our word for it!

You can read the full reviews on our website here.
