Over the past twelve months, New York based MANIK has been residing at the top of many peoples one-to-watch-lists off the back of his >Park To The Slop< EP on Josh Winks Ovum Recordings (which also led to releases on Four:Twenty and Fresh Meat). The 24 year old is rapidly building a reputation with his work and it gives us immense pleasure to welcome him to Komplex De Deep. Both the title track and flip >Space & Truth< take us on elegant and sensual, oldskool journeys.
Sweeping strings, rasping keys and most importantly lashings of groove, make this a release to revel in. From a new and rising talent, we turn to a very much established and legendary producer for our remixes. Alain Ho has unlike many, been there from the very beginnings. A DJ since the age of 13, he was instrumental in the creation and success of the French House scene. From his early days in Hip-Hop, to the launch of the famous Yellow Productions label and through his very own productions under his DJ Yellow guise, Alain has always been at the forefront of electronic music.
