ELECTRO SWING TO
Having spread like wildfire across Europe in the early part of the 21st century, Electro Swing has migrated back to its rightful home in North America. This reimagined speakeasy sound for a modern generation is an intoxicating mix of old and new, fusing traditional swing with vibrant electronic music. With reworks ranging from House and Electro to Dubstep and Drum & Bass to Hip Hop, the genre boldly revitalizes the music, spirit and fashion of the prohibition era with a bass-heavy dancefloor edge that moves into deep house by the end of the night. Featuring resident DJs Medicineman & The Great Grantsby, live bands, retro visuals, burlesque and YOU! Dress to excess in 1920s & 30s fashion and style!
HIGH POWER is Manifesto's nomadic monthly party. It's hot, foggy and filled with more lasers than a JLo video. We go where we're needed bringing the best sound selectors with us to hit you with fire sounds. Saturday Night features our resident DJ Dre Ngozi and guest DJ Nino Brown of Yes Yes Y’all and DJ Bambii, fresh off her European tour with Myyki Blanco. Hip hop, dancehall, soca, reggae, afrobeats and the goodness. Bring a towel.
UMA NOTA & FOOTPRINTS
These two music series team up, combining the deep dance floor vinyl selections of Footprints DJs Jason Palma and General Eclectic with the polyrhythmic release of an Uma Nota live show, featuring the infectious, powerful Afro-Brazilian drums and song of Maracatu Mar Aberto. Footprints trades in classic cuts ranging from Funk, Soul, Disco, Afrobeat, Latin and Brazilian to Dub, Reggae, Electro, and House, while Uma Nota’s tropical live element brings the thundering spectacle of the Maracatu Mar Aberto drummers, including a special appearance from captivating Brazilian singer Flávia Nascimento.
