I am proud to be able to introduce to you the incredibly talented DJ Manipulator. What is a DJ? I think the definition varies depending on the person, and can only be defined by what a particular “DJ” does and has a passion for. Manipulator’s passion is music first. He is well versed in diverse genres of music and you can hear that influence in his production work. Never trapped by invisible perimeters, Manipulator has dug through the most obscure records to find the right drum hit, horn stab or abstract sound; building blocks for his intricate compositions.
This mix, titled “Studio Kinda Dusty,” is a collection of some of Manipulator’s favorite records, carefully crafted from the original vinyl. It includes breaks, grooves, sample originals, and just plain great music. This mix is designed to give you a break from the current flow of pre-packaged, microwavable music. A vacation for your ears to a place that is… “KINDA DUSTY.”
I guarantee you will enjoy this mix as much as he enjoyed making it.
As a bonus, the last track is a medley of original music composed by DJ Manipulator himself. A personal representation of his style of production.
For inquires regarding events and production, please feel free to contact me personally.
