The S.O.U.L. Family & invite you to come celebrate 2 years of forward-thinking dance music. The last 24 months have been an incredible ride, with some amazing talent from all over the dance music map: Pezzner, Joeski, David Alvarado, Monty Luke, Redeye, Rey Aguilar, MACHINE, The Union and more have moved and grooved the faithful dance community at Southtown 101 for E:MERGE. And now, for our 2 Year Anniversary we present an artist featured on some of dance music’s best labels, including Ovum, Culprit, Hot Creations, Defected, Moda Black, Anjunadeep and more….

“New York City’s very own MANIK fired onto the scene back in 2011 with releases on Ovum, Hot Creations and LA based Culprit. He was named one of 5 breakout stars by DJ Mag for 2011. His diverse production sound is somewhere between classic house, techno, acid, and a bit of funk & disco- never pigeonholed- he is a true Music Producer/DJ who’s tastes reach beyond the dance-floor.

2013 and 2014 saw him release on some of the worlds biggest imprints via UK based Black Butter- home to Gorgon City and Rudimental- and Anjunadeep- home to Dusky. In these years, he received major accolades from XLR8R, THUMP/Vice, Mixmag, DJ Mag and many more.

Keeping up the momentum in 2015, his BPM DJ Set at the OVUM night received acclaim when it took the TOP spot on “THUMP’s Top 10 overall Sets” from the Festival. In May, he released the “Tokyo EP” on Nice Age- the label run by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. The breakout single on the EP “Buffalo Trace” was hammered on BBC Radio 1 by tastemakers Annie Mac and Pete Tong.

Furthermore, his summer edit series involving Janet Jackson bootlegs garnered much acclaim on XLR8R placing #1 for ‘July 2015 Top Downloads.’

Over the years, MANIK has played in renowned venues such as Panorama Bar Berlin, Womb Tokyo, Fabric London, Verboten NY, Q Nightclub Seattle, and has filled clubs in almost one hundred cities across the globe.

With a steady stream of releases on the way to close out 2015, MANIK will see his music released on renowned labels BPITCH Ctrl run by Ellen Allien, his sixth release on Josh Winks OVUM, and a new track coming on the almighty Hot Creations.

Combining this unrelenting passion and consistent quality over quantity, MANIK continues his limitless global rise.”
