Growing up between Brussels and the Aragon Region of Spain, Manu Dia has been shaped by a diverse exposure to vibrant cultures, architecture, and natural landscapes. Surface, his debut release, weaves conventional pop tropes amidst a glitchy electronic soundscape. The six-track project is embellished with glistening jewels of electronica, and moves between an eclectic range of genres and stylistic devices.
"Kids In America," the EP's lead single, is bursting with shimmering synths and buoyant summer melodies. "It's a song about being young and embracing the experiences of your youth," Manu explains. "Something that will make you feel like you are on a perpetual sunset ride home."
TOKiMONSTA launched Young Art Records in 2014 with the release of her Desiderium album.
