Paying homage to 90’s club cultures, MANICS makes their New Noise debut with the infectious indie dance-pop single, EMBRACE
The San Francisco duo blend new wave and classic 90’s house with modern aesthetics for a familiar yet novel sound.
Utilizing powerful vocals, percussion, synth work, and modulation to full effect, MANICS (Jordan Deherrera and Chris Sanders) have crafted a sound that can only be described as diverse, cohesive, and truly one-of-a-kind. Throughout the years, the band has produced numerous originals and remixes, racking up over half a million plays on Spotify and garnering support from the likes of Odesza, Poolside, and Goldroom. Additionally, MANICS are well-known for their dynamic live performances and have graced stages in support of Years & Years, MSTRKRFT, Dillon Francis, and Hot Chip.
In 2013, the duo founded the indie label, POPGANG Records, where they aim to showcase talented artists and producers across a wide array of various genres and subcultures. To date, POPGANG Records boasts a diverse collection of over 90 releases from the Bay Area and beyond.
New Noise is Dim Mak’s new music discovery imprint that focuses on cutting-edge sounds from burgeoning artists across the genre spectrum. Launched in 2010, New Noise got its start as a compilation series highlighting fresh faces handpicked by Steve Aoki and crew. By 2015, the platform evolved into a bi-weekly, free-download model based on singles. New Noise’s current incarnation is a copyright free model that allows the budding community of Twitch gamer’s and amateur YouTube content creators to use New Noise music in their videos and live streams sans purchase or fees, all in exchange for linking back to the artists and their music.
