Manic Focus Bio:
Manic Focus is the electronic music project of John “JmaC” McCarten, a Denver-based producer with roots in funk, soul, and new-era hip-hop. A multi-dimensional artist with a rowdy style that spans multiple genres, Manic Focus fuses soulful blues with heavy-hitting bass, creating a tone that’s entirely his own.
Originally hailing from the Twin Cities, JmaC grew up with classical piano lessons from an early age, developing a trained musical ear and laying the groundwork for his future in beat production. In his teen years, he developed a deep appreciation for hip-hop music, citing musical influences such as Atmosphere, Brother Ali and MF Doom. In high school, JmaC began producing hip-hop music using Logic software, making beats for his friends to rap on. He transitioned into making electronic music 5 years later, combining his love of hip-hop with electronic sound design and future bass influences.
Over the last 10 years, JmaC has released six full-length albums, each one a new evolution in sound and approach. The producer continues to push himself to new musical limits by incorporating original, sample-free recordings, which is especially apparent in the material from his last full length album Lost in a Digital World, released in September of 2019. Since then, JmaC has released 15 singles and a handful of EPs, including collaborations with Break Science, Mersiv, SoDown, K+Lab, ProbCause, and Marvel Years. McCarten has also completed a slew of official remixes for notable artists such as Louis the Child, Zed’s Dead, Pretty Lights, GRiZ, The Floozies, Umphrey’s McGee, PLS&TY, Lettuce, and Minnesota.
Recent live highlights include performances at Lollapalooza, Hulaween, North Coast Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Camp Bisco, Wakaan Festival and Summer Camp Music Festival. Previous performances of note include Electric Forest, Bonnaroo, The Gorge Amphitheater in WA and numerous Red Rocks performances supporting Zhu, Emancipator, Pretty Lights and more.
Maddy O’Neal - Direct Support
Dirty Funky Bass Music but make it pretty.
The vibe and soul of the Maddy O’Neal project combines soundscapes from all across the spectrum of genres…Rich in texture and atmosphere, her roots in funk and soul shine through in a bed of low end frequencies making for a unique environment for future bass and synth design to tie it all together. Hailing from Denver, Colorado you can hear the direct electro soul inspiration sprinkled in her productions but she has managed to carve out her own unique lane within the bass community. As a self taught producer and DJ, with a wildly creative upbringing, Maddy’s expression was formed by way of soulful melodic overtones, driven basslines, and glitched out hip hop grooves. Maddy’s live performances consist of original compositions, drum pads and an interwoven storyline ranging from down low grimey bangers to shimmery mid tempo vocal bass tracks and head nod disco. Her momentum is unstoppable as she has been touring the country for the last 5 years playing 90+ shows a year spreading her infectious energy from stage to stage.
With hits like “Zest Please”; a collaboration with the iconic Clozee that amassed over 2 million spotify plays in just one year, 4 EPs, a massive sophomore LP “Ricochet” in 2022 followed by 2 volumes of remix albums, Maddy’s repertoire is ever expanding leaving fan bases across the world wanting more.
Maddy O’Neal has played Coachella, Lollapalooza, Electric Forest, Envision, Forecastle, Camp Bisco, Summer Camp, North Coast, Red Rocks (x3) and many many more. Her touring resume is long and accomplished by supporting such artists as Clozee, Pretty Lights, Griz, Big Gigantic, Liquid Stranger, The Floozies, Opiuo, Wreckno, STS9, Manic Focus, and more!
Upcoming notable summer festival performances include highlights such as Bonnaroo, Cascade, SSBD, Sonic Bloom and more.
