Revered electro-house producer No Mana has just capped off the year with the last of his trifecta of releases on Monstercat, “Space.” After making a name for himself as a regular on mau5trap, the Filipino-American producer/DJ has hit the ground running with a trio of releases on Monstercat.
Coming off the heels of his previous two Monstercat releases, “Space” should make No Mana’s longtime mau5trap fans feel the most at home. It’s an anthemic and euphoric track that showcases No Mana’s 8-bit production perfectly. (Or is he 16-bit, he’s at least SNES). If you’re feeling nostalgic for 2007-2009 era electro-house production, “Space” should scratch your itch. Featuring bright, warm synths that overlap with lush keyboard chords and an early Porter Robinson-esque beat, “Space” hits the sweet spot. Here’s what No Mana had to say about the making of “Space.”
“When I was 5 or 6-years-old, I would think of any music that had a synth in it as “space music.” I’ve also been listening to a lot of house and trance lately, so I wanted to incorporate that into “Space” with drums and melodic instruments.”
Check out the latest from No Mana, “Space” featuring ill-esha, out now on Monstercat.
