niall mannion aka mano le tough is set to release his first record on pampa entitled ahsure. the 3 track ep sees the irish producer showcase his unique ability to combine dance floor rhythms with visceral vocal based songs. the result of which is a piece of work that will find a comfortable home in a variety of settings. while this method has become the hallmark of manos discography, ahsure feels like some of his most honest and accomplished work to date.
mano le tough is set to release his second 12inch on maeve, the label he cofounded with baikal and the drifter in 2012. the label was born from the idea to release hypnotic dancefloor dedicated music, and this release certainly stays true to that. big words from the small mouth arrives on the a side of maeve 11 with quite the clatter. searing synth jams scatter over a brooding kick/sub bass combo. the sharp crisp percussion drives the track forward all the time, while various bleets, squeals and swells develop throughout giving the track a raw rave vibe. arganol on the flip is a trippy affair. touching 9 mins long, this track feels like mano le tough right from the outset, patient in its approach whilst slowly telling the listener its story. the narrative unravels through woozy melodies and melancholic cameos culminating in a burst of movement and energy perfect for the wee hours of a dancefloor.
mano le tough spends a lot of time in the club. in 2014, the irish-born artist played more than 100 gigs all around the world-landing at number eight on resident advisors annual dj poll in the process but when the time came to make trails, the follow-up to his much lauded 2013 debut album changing days, mano knew that a little time away from the dancefloor was in order
maeve 03 is mano le toughs debut on the label, and his first original music since his album >changing days< in spring 2013. tempus ep consists of 3 very different tracks, which showcase the different sides of manos productions. title track tempus is a warm melodic burner. return to yoz certainly a dancefloor moment. sorry is a useless word is mano the haus romantiker, returning to a style reminiscent of his album.
maechtig dickes remix-paket! diese maxi kommt mit drei tracks aus mano le toughs großartigem debütalbum, die von dixon, tale of us und new jackson fuer die clubs frisch gemacht worden sind. diese 12inch ist ein sureshot, daran besteht kein zweifel.
erste maxi des iren mano le tough auf dem münchner label permanent vacation. drei psychedelisch-hypnotische house-trips zwischen der unermesslichen weite der schweizer alpen und der regnerischen melancholie seines heimatlandes.

im jahr 2014 hat mano le tough über 100 gigs weltweit gespielt und landete auf dem 8. rang im dj poll von resident advisor. nach seinem vielgepriesenen debütalbum changing days (2013) egt der in irland geborene künstler nun ein beeindruckendes zweites werk vor. trails führt den weg fort, den mano seit mehreren jahren gekonnt beschreitet: trails ist voll von sich langsam aufbauenden, von melodien getragenen stücken. gleichzeitig zeigt sich mano in trails souveräner denn je zuvor. seine zahlreichen sets in clubs wie berghain und trouw haben seinen produktionen nach und nach ein beeindruckendes gespür für den aufbau eines tracks und den richtigen augenblick verliehen. die songs auf trails haben es nicht eilig, sie gedeihen in wohlüberlegten schritten, während dabei die linien zwischen house, techno, new wave, ambient und pop zunehmend verschwimmen
in den letzten paar jahren ist mano le tough einer der shootingstars der internationalen dance music szene geworden. sein einfluss ist so groß, dass kristian beyer von ame in einem interview kuerzlich sogar meinte: >dank mano le tough habe ich keine angst um die zukunft von house musik.<

THE REMIXES, MANO LE TOUGH, WASTED GAZE / AREA REMIX
12" Vinyl D24.04.12
aleph04 comes with three special reinterpretations of the labels first three eps. mano le tough is first in line. his remix of > flowers on fire< from aleph01 takes the originals colorful and spaced out vibes and puts them into a little more dancefloor friendly context, with a big 808 booming away and the swirls of the original synthline driving the track forward. mano has been a big supporter of the label right from the start and his releases on permanent vacation, buzzin fly or internasjonal have been turning heads quite a lot, so its an honour to have him on board. the second remix is by wasted gaze. this newcomer from vilnius / lithuania delivers an amazing version of >port hope< , taken from aleph02. a powerful, 2step / garage inspired beat sets the pace, while glowing pads, a super deep bass and enigmatic vocals take care of the rest. watch this guy, his untitled states ep on partyzanai is one of the most intersting and exciting records in a long time. the last track is a remix by aera aka m50 from chicago, who, quite fittingly, took care of this spaced out take on whats my name again? from aleph03. this one is for the heads, a special gem that will work magic in the early morning hours
