Description

Manna - Manna

Manna are Kevin Bacon and Jonathan Quarmby, producers and musicians who have worked with an impressive array of talent over the years including Finley Quaye, David Bowie, The Sugar Babes, The Pretenders, Ziggy Marley and scores of other chart-topping acts. The diversity of the people that they have produced is a testament to their knowledge of music and their ability to approach different genres with new and innovative ideas.
Manna has been the vehicle by which they created to release their own music - a vehicle that has enabled them to express ideas outside the confines of producing other artist’s songs.

“Manna”, their debut album, encompasses a rich blend of ambient, techno and dub styles that makes it hard to categorise – something of a refreshing rarity in these times of pigeonholed musical genre.

Their second album will be digitally available in the coming months too, but more importantly they are currently recording material for a new Manna album for R&S/Apollo, due for release late 2009/early 2010.

Press:

“Manna's self-titled debut album, a remarkable blend of ambient, Techno and dub came out on Apollo Records last January, and it is safe to say that it can be considered a genuine revelation in its genre. Strange combinations of samples and Oberheim and Prophet 5 sounds are mixed with old noisy boxes such as the Synthi HiFli, routed through forgotten hi-fi processors of the seventies. Recorded totally without multitrack tape, the tracks were mixed as they were being written - no going back.”
