This weekend’s mix comes from Los Angeles based producer & DJ, MANIK. Born and raised in the New York house scene, MANIK only recently made the move to the electronic renaissance scene of Los Angeles. Apparently the move has been a source of inspiration for the Culprit standout, as his latest mixes have a new sense of rejuvenation about them. He’s always spun some intensely groovy house, but as this mix showcases, the vocal elements are a bit stronger and he genuinely seems to be having fun again (or maybe he never stopped, who knows). Regardless, it’s a pleasure seeing one of my favorite artists pushing himself and his music that much further. And the fact that he’s doing it from my old hometown is an added bonus.
