Divided by his home in Byron Bay, Brisbane and the recently booming Sydney Underground, Mani has asserted his unique flavour of Progressive music in the dance community. From his early beginnings almost 8 years ago he has strived to create atmospheric, forward thinking dance music that he was introduced to on the dance floor in his early days.
Coming a long way since his early days as a young DJ performing around the underground Byron Bay scene, Mani has gained massive support from the likes of Eric Prydz (Featuring in his 2013 Essential Mix) and performed at well renowned club nights and festivals including Club Raiders, Byron Bay and Splendour In The Grass. Established and continuing to strive forward, Mani is beginning to turn heads and move bodies with his progressive, innovative dance music.
Mani’s brand new Sour Minds EP is out today via UGENIUS and GD FRNDS. It’s a sophisticated approach to techno, that takes the listener on a uplifting journey through a portal into the unknown. The 3 track EP has received support from some big movers in the dance music world including Triple J’s The Friday Night Shuffle, Robert Owens (Trax, Systematic, THR), Nice Radio France, Mario Bazouri, Danny Tenaglia, Peredel (UFO Sound), Dale Middleton, Party Groove (Italy), Richie Hawtin, One Foot In The Rave, H.O.S.H. (Diynamic), Chris Fortier, Dash Radio – Dash Dance X, Dance Tunes Radio (Canada), Galaxie Radio 95.3 FM, Kiss FM (Australia) AND HEAPS MORE!
Mani’s Sour Minds EP fuses different sounds from many genres and blends them into a mature listening experience. From afro, melodic elements through to straight edge techno. This release is ideal for the late night. It’s a great look into what this young producer can put together. With more releases due out in the coming months and a east coast tour on the cards it seems 2020 is the year for Mani & You.
