Rising bass producer IMANU has announced his new EP ‘PARADISE’, set for release on 20th October alongside a release party at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) at the iconic Melkweg.
Continuing to push the boundaries of the bass scene, the 8-track EP includes latest single ‘Aching (On A High)’, a hard-hitting rave weapon featuring Lia. Other tracks show off IMANU’s stylistic range, crossing genres from the grungy, brutalist synth soundscape of ‘Dream Sequence’ to the blistering drums and haunting melodies of ‘Of Two Minds’ with Rhode. Next to be released from the project is the atmospheric ‘Rush’, a collaboration with Zeds Deadwhich features cascading synths and vocals from Kucka.
Hosted by electronic music events ADE and copromoted by Curated by, the PARADISE release event will showcase an exciting new generation of talent on the bass scene: London-based SICARIA, Dutch drum & bass producer Buunshin, singer-songwriter LaMeduza, Toulouse-based collective Visages, hotly tipped French producer The Caracal Project and festival favourites The Glitch Mob, all playing diverse multi-tempo, genre-hopping sets. Leading a “legion of hungry, contrarian music producers” in the words of edm.com, IMANU has gathered an all-star cast for a night of bass-heavy PARADISE.
Rising to the spotlight at the age of just 16 under his former alias, Signal, with his brutalist style of music, IMANU has developed his presence on the scene as one of the greats. Now in his 20s, he’s already had releases on significant labels such as Deadbeats, UKF and VISION, released his debut EP UNFOLD on Deadbeats in 2022, and has over 6 million streams on Spotify alone. He’s also remixed the likes of Apashe, TOKiMONSTA and What So Not & Skrillex and already collaborated with the likes of Noisia, KUČKA, Pham and josh pan.
Bringing together innovative production and a talented cast of collaborators, the release of the ‘PARADISE’ EP promises to continue the rise of one of electronic music’s brightest talents.
