Its strange to think that it was only 2010 that saw the first records from Christopher Manik, aka M A N I K. Since exploding onto the scene with his debut Ovum release he has gone on to develop and strengthen his own sounds & styles. Never pigeonholed, the young New Yorker has confidently and creatively placed his music on a variety of the hottest labels of today, whilst always managing to maintain his own unique identity. Today he returns to Ovum with an ode to his beloved former studio, 'Im Nice Like That', and presents a trio of new cuts, two of which were the very last productions to come out of his musical bunker. "The title track "I Got Us" is sort of a love song trapped inside a sleazier beat," says Chris, as he also owns up to having provided the vocals on the track. "Amber Knife" comes heavy with its FM bass and 303 action before "Weekend Is 4 Lovers" rounds out the ep. "That was actually the last ever track that i wrote in the studio. I wrote the lyrics and sang on this again too. Its a song about falling for a girl whilst on a weekend away..." A fitting final hurrah for the studio and yet another impressive release from both M A N I K and Ovum recordings.
