Last November Paul Hazendonk’s Manual Music celebrated its 200th release courtesy of the Dutch master’s three-track Sanction EP (which incidentally featured sublime remixes by Hernan Cattaneo and Martin Garcia). Though Hazendonk’s imprint has attained an incredible milestone, he’s refused to rest on his laurels. In fact, he’s doubled down on releasing top-quality tracks that epitomize the label’s deep, highly melodic ethos.
In keeping with Hazendonk’s ongoing efforts to shine the spotlight on rising talent, next month Manual Music will present Alessandro Diga’s majestic debut album, Figments Of My Imagination. On the spectacular full-length Diga, who also hails from Holland, crafts a bespoke selection of glistening cuts full of warm bass, fluid drums and cascading melodies.
We’re pleased to world premiere “The Peaks” from the upcoming LP. Get a first listen to the track below and be on the lookout for limited-edition CD copies of the album being pressed for release.
