IN THE NEWS:
"So, the one and only Manifesto decided to grace us with some dopeness with this recent release. Using the violin as a prominent instrument it’s quite a journey that takes classical melodies and smacks them with some synths. Big thing…thing I stress the most…it’s innovative. It’s different."

"You’ll never see a performance like this, unless a you’re graced with the presence of Manifesto. It isn’t uncommon to find a DJ who spins electronica. It also isn’t uncommon to discover a DJ who can charismatically interact with his fans. What is uncommon is a DJ who does this, plays a mind-blowing set, has a unique quality about him and can do everything live and effortlessly."
