Mani Festo makes his solo debut via Durkle Disco this month, so to celebrate, he's knocked up an eclectic Fresh Kicks mix that's guaranteed to have your neighbours banging down the door — hopefully to join the party, not just yell about the bass!
Best known as one half of Swamp 81 outfit Cousin — alongside Mia Mouse — Nick Marks first shone a light on his solo moniker via some stripped-back collab work with Sheffield’s Denham Audio (listen to the trio's own Fresh Kicks here).
Now back on Bristol's boundary breaking Durkle Disco label, Marks offers up his 'Fallout' EP, featuring three tracks of neck-snapping percussion and murderous low-end.
For his Fresh Kicks offering, Marks is showing off his genre-hopping tendancies, drawing for raw UK bass, jungle and devilish dub — plus we're told there's some unheard Durkle goodies hidden away in there, so ears out for future killers!
Check out Mani Festo's mix in full below and head to the Durkle Disco Bandcamp to pick it up his new EP from 28th July.
