Mind Your Own Groove
Manoloco - Mind Your Own Groove is the 2nd project added to the house of Mighty Fat Records. A year since their debut compilation 'Mellowgrounds', Oded Keret and Dovev Nistor have found a rose in a field of thorns. Manoloco (Roman Giler) was born in 1978 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and now presides in Israel. Manoloco found his passion for music at a very young age and was influenced by a wide variety of music. He started playing the piano at the age of 12, and then taught himself to play the guitar and an assortment of other musical instruments along the way. Today at the age of 27, Manoloco spends most of his time stretching the limits of his home studio. In 'Mind Your Own Groove' he produces a unique collection of electronic music integrated with live instruments and drops of Psy elements that are blended into a Down-tempo pool of sound. Manoloco's sparkling debut is a new light glimmering in the desert, and is sure to be a fresh uptake on the electronic scene. 'The album alloys the elements of downtempo, psy trance and dub quite well. Most of the songs bring slower beats, especially the first track called 'GTR & Me' is a very smooth chill music - this one mostly remains to the mood of the album's cover: pitched down jungle groove, piano, acoustic guitar, synth bars, calmness, it's more about dub, basicly a real downtempo-dub hybrid, dreamy, pleasant and uplifitng mood.' DJ Suefo | manamana.hu 'Mind Your Own Groove is a worthy addition to your chillout collection. The style is wonderfully shanti-free, and has a definite nod to "proper" electronica...what ties it all in together so neatly is the quirk and the definitive style that runs through Manoloco's music.'
