It’s no secret that the trap is latest fad genre. However, unlike the countless other producers jumping the Trap train, the Atlanta via California producer, MANIKAN, has an intrinsic kinship with the trap sound. With his latest, On The Grind, MANIKAN delivers an intoxicating aural journey through a series of haunting melodies ascending above rhythmic trapped out percussion. On The Grind is not “pop” trap – it’s mediation on the fledgling genre.
MANIKAN aka Mitch Brown is an Atlanta-based producer/DJ/promoter, who is a welcomed gasp of fresh air in the global dance culture. Originally born + raised on the West Coast, MANIKAN has managed to make moves in the Dirty South with his high-energy sets & unique production talents.
On The Grind EP drops next week via Starkey & Dev79’s Seclusiasis label.
