Former no-wave player T.K. Bailey's alchemical attempt at creating electro environments of sinister subtlety and blitz intensity. Locust disco and android dub.
Manifest exists in a no man's land between highbrow, academic research + development and simple, pelvic thrusting technoid noise. We enjoy the efforts of the original Industrialists (see Throbbing Gristle, Clock DVA)who used music as one means toward a larger perception-bending end. At the same time, we respect the simple, effective power of old dub plates and snaking rhythmic patterns.
Manifest is and always will be a populist, anti- 'music business' vehicle, more concerned with urging people to explore inner and outer space than with seizing chart power. With a minimum of tools and hush-hush top secret software, we hope to make sound environments that will help people to deal with living in a 'saturated' society. Manifest is your personal audio defense mechanism, and your aural starter kit for anarchic fun.
The first Manifest release, 'Demonochrome', is now available on Open Circuit (distributed through www.staalplaat.com) with more material to follow shortly.
