Currently residing in amongst the bright lights of New York City, MANIK breathes electronic dance music into his immediate environment and beyond. With his 2010 material appearing on some of the best underground electronic labels including Josh Wink's Ovum, Moodmusic, Four:Twenty and Chicago's very own Fresh Meat - run by legendary Audio Soul Project - MANIK is poised to have a groundbreaking year.

Some artists are pigeonholed into purely one genre, but that’s not possible with MANIK. Graduating from school in 2007 with a degree in Music Business, he is not by any means your typical artist. Being heavily inspired by a diverse and comprehensive musical background, his style is a unique blend of cutting edge house, futuristic techno and deep, classic old school grooves, along with dark & edgy sounds.

Recent highlights include playing alongside Josh Wink, Steve Bug, and DJ Sneak at the 15 years of Ovum WMC event. In addition to this, his Park To The Slope EP released in January on Ovum was a Beatport deep house chart topper, receiving a standing ovation from all quarters, 2010 is promising to be a year that will see MANIK the name, and Chris the artist, set his mark as a true innovator in the dance music scene. Being described as one of the "most focused, humble, & active musicians around in Electronic Dance Music today", Chris's talents & style have quickly evolved into a class of their own. This driven 24 year old is one of the leaders for the next generation of multi-genre artists, as well as being one of the top cutting edge electronic musicians hailing from the burgeoning stateside scene.
