Badman DJ Manny returns to Moveltraxx with four beastly footwork tools that'll have you lit and lifted in no time whatsoever! The brawny dance producer kicks off the cascading beats and bass of "Can't Get Enough", which is followed by the duttier, more gnarly vocal shots of Party People" - a track reminiscent of some of RP BOO's output. "Love Dancing (remix)" is more on the straight and narrow, dropping a fast-paced, jazz-filtered dance groove complete with Loose Joints' infamous vocals, leaving "Feeling Is Fine" to end on a euphoric rave high that is simply needed for these summer vibes..! HOT!
The fifth release from Chicago's Teklife Records is Greenlight by DJ Manny. The label audaciously claims that it is 'a masterclass in footwork production' by one of their leading figures: and it's a fair call. Born and raised on the southside of Chicago, Manny has been dancing since the age of 10 and is said to have some of the best moves on the scene. The footwork sound 'has developed in unison with the dance style that accompanies it' and he has an intuition for what works on the dancefloor when channelling his energy in the studio. Instead of sampling (like many of his peers on the scene), he has created his own sounds on the album, giving it a more personal touch. Tracks like "Ghost Out" are dark and dystopian street sound, while there are mellower moments like "You Looking Good" (bridging the gap between liquid drum & bass) while the spitfire beats of "Life In This Bitch" features frequent collaborator on the album: DJ Taye.
