MANIK - Tokyo EP - Nice Age


MANIK - Tokyo EP - Nice Age

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ imprint Nice Age drops it's latest release the ‘Tokyo’ E.P from NYC producer Manik, featuring three sleek house cuts from the New York based producer.

Since its inception in 2011 Nice Age has hosted the likes of Radio Slave, Krankbrothers and Swick and now American producer MANIK, known for work on the likes of Ovum, Culprit and Black Butter, has been called in for the label’s ninth release. ‘Tokyo’ sees MANIK drop a trio of imaginative acid-licked productions.

Led by firm kicks, ‘Tokyo’ lays down an infectious hook before playful chimes and vocal moans fashion a cheerful, feel-good vibe. Fuzzy percussion and chopped vox murmurs make up ‘Buffalo Trace’ as 303 squelches make sporadic appearances, until ‘Silver’ picks up the pace using a profusion of claps and hats to take things in a rhythmic direction as spectral chords float elegantly throughout the mix.

Manik ‘Tokyo’ EP is out on Nice Age on 25th May 2015.
