NYC-based DJ-producer Chris Manik is on fire right now. In little more than twelve months he's made a formidable leap from virtual unknown to internationally celebrated "It" boy, with releases on top labels like Ovum and Poker Flat.
Specializing in a delectably deep and bass-heavy fusion of tech house, nu-disco, and electro-funk, his fledgling discography is already being charted across the board -- among his many DJ fans are heavyweights like Josh Wink, Steve Bug, Jimpster, and Anja Schneider.
October saw the release of MANIK's McLovin' You EP on the ultra chic Los Angeles-based Culprit imprint, home to such globetrotting luminaries as Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler and Lee Foss. Standouts like "Sex Panther" and the eponymous "McLovin You" are lushly-produced, seductive floor smashers that have no doubt positioned him as one of the hottest new producers of 2010.
MANIK will be making his auspicious Miami debut at club Space this Saturday night. We suggest you catch this up-and-coming star early on, so that years from now you can brag that you saw him play when he was still (somewhat) underground!
