MANIK
MANIK
New York City's very own MANIK fired onto the scene back in 2011 with releases on Ovum, Poker Flat, and LA based Culprit. The Queens native spends his time producing in the studio like a true mad scientist, while also being seasoned at the art of crate digging- managing to always find those forgotten records and hidden gems. Chris is the quintessential New York DJ. His diverse sound is somewhere between classic house, groovy techno, acid house, and a bit of funk & disco- never pigeonholed- he is a true Music Producer/DJ who's tastes reach beyond the dance-floor. MANIK has always had an unrelenting passion and consistent quality over quantity as his music motto.

Throughout the years, he's released on the worlds top underground labels: Ovum, Bpitch Control, and Poker Flat just to name a few. Keeping up the momentum in 2015, his XLR8R exclusive "Summer Edit Series" involving Janet Jackson edit/reworks garnered much acclaim by placing #1 and #10 overall on the XLR8R Top 100 Downloads of 2015. Continuing this trend, he also hit #3 in 2016 with his Beastie Boys rework. The sounds of MANIK can be found in the crates of the worlds leading underground DJs and tastemakers; Ellen Allien, Steve Bug, DJ Heidi, Steve Lawler, and Josh Wink all being regular supporters.

As a DJ, MANIK's international profile has risen just as quickly. Having played at Panorama Bar Berlin, Womb Tokyo, Fabric London, Revolver Melbourne, Q Nightclub Seattle, and many more throughout the years. This New Yorker continues to bring his unique brand of house and techno, old school and new school, expertly crafted music to the dance-floor.

With a steady stream of music about to hit in 2017, including his highly anticipated new album being released on Ovum, plus new EP's on VIVa and Fresh Meat Chicago, the new year is set to be the young producers most complete yet."
