M A N I K – Nightfall EP


Culprit’s most prolific contributor M A N I K adds a fifth release of original material to the label’s canon.

Since his C​ulprit​ debut back in 2010, M ​A N I K​ has become one of LA imprint’s signature artists and the one whose growth as a producer closely mirrored the label’s own rise. A New York native, M ​A N I K​ has become even closer to C​ulprit ​in 2014 – physically, by moving to its home base of Los Angeles.

“N​ightfall” ​is an analogue house workout with an inventive bassline, crisp percussion and ethereal vocals that combine for one of the most distinct songs in C​ulprit’​s catalogue in some time. The remix comes courtesy of another of UK’s young rising production stars, T​hermalBear, ​best known for his releases on S​asha’​s Last Night on Earth label. His smooth yet bass-­heavy rework is primed for maximum dancefloor action. “J​erry Park” ​is a warm lighter take on the analogue sonic template.

“​N​ightfall”​ continues​ M A N I K’​s creative collaboration with an exciting pair of producers – London’s E​li & Fur​ who provided vocals on the title track. The duo is best known for their releases on D​efected ​and A​njunadeep.​ It is on the latter that M ​A N I K ​and they have collaborated for the first time, in late 2014.

Released on March 2nd 2015.
