Electro house prodigy No Mana marks a trilogy of releases on Monstercat today with his next nostalgic single, “Space (feat. ill-esha).”
Inspired by one of his favourite childhood songs, “I Love You Always Forever” by Donna Lewis, the new record sees the artistic virtuoso juxtapose his previous moodier tones on releases like “Out of the Dark” and “Yesterday,” with vintage-analogue synths backed by his signature 8-bit beats. The pop-driven melody from ill-esha tops the ‘90s feel and positions the track as a groovy anthem fit for the dancefloor.
While “Space” is the final release of 2022 for No Mana, fans can still catch him live in December at his last two dates in Denver at The Temple and Harrisburg at Stage On Herr.
No Mana shares, “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.”
Lauded for his DIY artwork, No Mana continued to employ his signature pixelated approach on the cover for “Space” with celestial elements and scientific references. Since September, he has taken his galactical live visuals and multi-dimensional sounds on a massive US tour, performing to over 6,000 fans nationwide.
Across the last few months since signing to the label, he’s garnered an overwhelmingly positive response from the Monstercat community, who can look forward to more from No Mana in 2023.
