Spanish producer Manu Dia is poised to make waves with the release of his latest single “Often Inside” and freshly announced debut album.
A few weeks ago, rising producer Manu Dia‘s single “Promise” crossed my Spotify Release Radar and delivered a healthy dose of it.
The warm instrumental hit me like a ton of bricks — the peculiar way sometimes only a lyricless track can. The carefully crafted vocal samples and evolving soundscape drew me into rediscovering the artist behind a sensational official remix of San Holo’s “I Still See Your Face” and a 2019 EP Surface that included “Kids in America” with indie dance outfit Panama. Today, the producer delivers yet again with a new track “Often Inside” and his upcoming debut album by the same name.
“Often Inside” delivers emotional weight with its soft and complex melodic layers. Short modulating melodic phrases over a consistent kick speak a language of their own. Drawing on the likes of Tourist and Jon Hopkins, Manu Dia creates a dialect both familiar and yet entirely brand new.
The new single couples the announcement of the artist’s debut full-length Often Inside. The title track follows “Promise” and Manu’s recent collaboration “Tuesday Morning” with Lizzy Land, an alluring taste of the vocal tracks to come. The upcoming release features art direction from Valentin (ODAK) Folliet, a complementary palette for the project’s warm tones. The eight-track release will be delivered in full via Young Art Records on April 8th.
