PREMEIRE | Manic Focus Effortlessly Blends Hip-Hop And Electronic On “Just Like You”

|||, ,

With Manic Focus’ forthcoming anticipated album Lost in a Digital World coming this September, we’ve been loving the singles we’ve heard so far. We recently heard his “Lyrebird” collab with Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli & Break Science’s Borahm Lee and now he’s back with more heat. Today we’re stoked to premiere his new track “Just Like You” as we await the full project on the way.

“Just Like You is a tune I’m very excited about. I’ve always been a fan of stringed instruments, and I wanted to capture an uptempo string rhythm with a synth.  The result is a classical inspired hip-hop electronic beat that I love playing live.” – John McCarten (Manic Focus)

“Just Like You” slaps. Manic Focus really went in on this one to create a hybrid song blending elements of hip-hop and electronic production, effortlessly capturing the best of both worlds. The punching drums and well-placed vocal samples pair with the slashing synths, strings and funky production in the best way. This song will surely get anyone’s feet moving and has us impatiently awaiting the full Lost in a Digital world project just around the corner. Check out tour dates below and enjoy!
