- Words: Glenn Jackson
In anticipation of his set this Saturday for the fast-approaching Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, NYC-based DJ/producer MANIK has dropped off "718," a sleek house number presumably named after the area code which incorporates the New York boroughs of the Bronx, Queens, and—that's right—Brooklyn. With "718," MANIK delivers a characteristically polished tune which rolls and bounces in equal volumes, fixing a number of precise percussion patterns around bulbous bass tones and an inviting series of floating chords. More information on MANIK's upcoming BEMF set alongside The Magician, Paul Raffaele, and Vin Sol this weekend can be found here.
