For the first MNL release of 2015 we welcome back Luke Mandala to the Manual family after a couple of years of absence. His last Manual appearance dates back to 2011 when he remixed Rolando Vallice and Roy Avni + collaborated with Manual boss Paul Hazendonk on 'Sparkle Pony'. No releases on Manual doesn't mean this guys has been sitting still. With releases on respectable labels such as Selador, Traum and Baroque to name a few Luke Mandala has grown to be a household name in the electronic music scene nowadays.

This new release kicks off with the title track 'Wide Open'. A rugged builder, constantly grooving and evolving into a funky distorted piece of work. A true dance floor climaxer! The second track titled 'Why' has the same ruggedness but leans more towards the techno side of things without leaving sight of the melodic side of things. To kick 2015 off in style Manual's founding father Paul Hazendonk makes his first ever appearance on the MNL sub label, remixing 'Why' together with the revelation of 2014; Dustin Nantais. Their deep remix is build around the vocal hook of the original and rich with arpeggiators and a lot of low end for maximum effect.
