STILL GOING (DFA – NYC)
M A N I K Bio:
Having arrived on the scene right at the point that a new wave of similarly talented east coast producers turned all our attention toward the United States, M A N I K proceeded to drop a tide of killer 12” singles in the last few years, before his debut album arrived on Ovum in May 2011. DJ Mag commented that he is “a purveyor of his own breed of out-of-the-box house” but this tells only part of the story as the hometown-inspired LP ‘Armies of the Night’ touches not only on house but funk, nu disco, acid and electronica – leaving a hard to categorize milestone of a record that stands the young New Yorker out as one of the breakthrough acts of the current era.
STILL GOING Bio:
Still Going is the sublime partnership of composer/producer Liv Spencer & producer Eric Duncan. Their talents originally collided on the now classic single “Still Going Theme” (DFA Records). Along with its hypnotic flipside “On & On”, the single captivated listeners with it’s anthemic energy and quickly became a dance floor staple. Their second release “Spaghetti Circus” (DFA Records) propelled Still Going beyond the synthesized house and techno sound in the form of a guitar-fueled charging disco anthem. The EP’s B side – “Untitled Love” – became a balearic anthem in its own right, and cemented their reputation for creating timeless dance music.
Still Going have built a solid reputation as remixers and lent their talents to artists such as The Doves, !!! (Chk, Chk, Chk), Groove Armada, Austra, The Presets, and Bryan Ferry amongst others.
In 2012, the NYC duo steps up their game with the launch of Still Going Records. Their first release. “D117”, is an epic blend of psychedelic rock’n’roll, disco, and house music. The label will showcase original Still Going material as well as releases from new and established NYC talent.
