With Manic Focus releasing his full-length Minds Rising album this Friday, we’ve linked up for another premiere off the project. Today we have the pleasure of sharing his new track “Habit” alongside Russ Liquid and The RapperChicks following up our previous premiere of “Stronger” off the album.
We’ve been fans of and friends with Manic Focus for years and it’s been amazing to watch his growth. His upcoming album Minds Rising is two years in the making and showcases his progression as a producer to an artist composing full songs.
This latest release “Habit” brings on a funky three-piece horn section led by Russ Liquid while hip-hop group The Rapperchicks hold down their solid verses and soulful chorus. Manic Focus never fails to combine organic instrumentation with electronic productions and doesn’t disappoint on his latest infusing gritty with soulful and funky live elements capturing his signature sound. Enjoy!
Electro-soul producer Manic Focus definitely brings the soul on his latest single, "Stronger", which features Jennifer Hartswick of Trey Anastasio Band, Late Night Radio and Adam Deitch of Lettuce and Break Science.
He leads with a gospel organ progression that's overlaid with soulful vocals and jazzy drums. By midway through, we can guarantee you'll be jamming and have your head bobbing to the funky rhythm. If you're a fan of Big Gigantic or GRiZ, you'll fall in love with Manic Focus. There's so many live elements going on that it'll seem like a concert is happening right in front of you.
"Stronger" will be part of Manic Focus' fifth studio album, Minds Rising, which arrives on Apr. 21. The LP has been about two years in the making and will dive into several genres including funk, soul, future bass and hip-hop. Listen to the premiere "Stronger" below, in addition to him upcoming tour dates, and enjoy!
