One half of Tale of Us has returned with yet another breathtaking, melodic EP on Dancing Astronaut’s 2022 Label of the Year. MRAK has officially delivered Manifesto as a follow-up to his debut solo project One back in 2021. While Anyma has had his fair share of energetic singles in just the last few months, MRAK has carefully put together one of the most moving, story-driven EPs that Afterlife has seen.
Landing as a two-track project, “Manifesto” comes as the lead single while “Equilibrium” fittingly balances out the EP’s B-side. Continuing to build upon his We Don’t Follow show concept, MRAK offers something far beyond a DJ set, regularly incorporating drum pads, synths, and multiple keyboards for an immersive experience. At just 10 years old, MRAK attended a classical concert and immediately fell in love with the music. Wanting to be a pianist before producing techno, MRAK found a sonic harmony between the two genres that present an exciting form of live dance music. Accompanied by a stunning, dreamy waterfall, MRAK has turned Manifesto into a can’t-miss audio-visual experience. Manifesto has become an integral part of his recent run of solo shows and is available to stream below.
