"Manni's smacking out sandpaper techno at an exhilarating rate. Falling somewhere between Martyn and Mark Broom, Manni clocks up another scorching notch on the tech-bass bedpost" - 9/10 by Mixmag
Manni Dee's - Shifting EP comprises of 3 tracks of uncompromising dancefloor music. Focussing on the 130bpm area frequented by many of the alumni of dubstep's fallout, its raw production values and emphasis on percussion forge something original yet functional.
Whether conscious or not, it sounds like Skudge-esque techno fused with his trademark hyperactive percussion, injecting the Manni Dee sound into a 4/4 mould without losing the rudeness.
James Fox tames the beast of the title track into a slinky NYC garage-house groovathon and a frequent collaborator of Manni's, Deft, supplies a rework of Viaduct.
