It’s been a while since we’ve shared any new music from Manic Focus. The last time the Chicago-based artist's’ name graced the site was for his electro soul singles “Stronger” and “Habit” which dropped earlier this year. But today, we have the pleasure of premiering yet another brand new Manic Focus track, this time in the form of a remix of Liquid Stranger & Mr.Bill’s “Frankenskank”.
This latest Manic Focus offering comes as part Liquid Stranger’s brand new Weird & Wonderful Remix EP. Starting out with some vocal chops and dub-inspired drums from the original, Manic Focus boosts the tempo and adds his own unique spin on things. Abrasive growls, distant vocals and some bright playful synths take the track in-and-out of lighthearted progressions and dark, bass-heavy drops.
Having teamed up in February for a sold out show at Washington DC’s 9:30 Club, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see some more Liquid Stranger x Manic Focus shows happening in the very near future…but we can only hope.
Liquid Stranger’s hand-picked, five-track remix EP is now available to stream and download via his label, WAKAAN. Check out Manic Focus’ remix of “Frankenskank” below and enjoy!
