Elite Force > Live in Prague (VIDEO)

Sometimes being a DJ is such a damned privilege. That was most definitely the way I felt in Prague this Saturday night just gone. I'd heard things from friends of mine about the Cross Club, but I wasn't really prepared for the sheer scale of invention that this club boasts from basement to top floor.

If anything, it reminded me of Burning Man in microcosm ... an incredible array of futuristic metalwork and all manner of recycled materials adorn every space, and many of them are motorized and individually backlit. There are neon-strip fans rotated from the ceiling and the main room felt like the inside of a giant, sinister watch. There are beautiful hanging lights made from inverted lemon squeezers, a dungeon of a basement, old diner chairs wrapped around twisted metal tables, rotating hubcap stools and a mezzanine like some arch-industrial Alice in Wonderland.

At the very top there is a huge, expansive chillout zone where the medium changes completely, and suddenly everything is made from wood - soft lighting, mellow music, airy, spacious ... it's like entering a temple through the backdoor or a club. If you're ever in Prague and get a chance, check it out ... well worth a trip!

The track featured is 'The Law of Life' from the 'Revamped' album from Elite Force which is OUT THIS WEEK.

Manifesto fave and all-round wunderkid, Rektchordz has been a busy boy! Aside from penning a MASSIVE new single for U&A Recordings which is due out in the first week of April, he also launches a brand new WEBSITE today. The site is the latest in a series to roll out from artists on the label, and as with previous site launches it comes with a preview player where you can hear the new single in all it's glory, and also a huge remix he's done of Calvin Harris' summer anthem-in-waiting 'Stars Come Out'.

Neurosonics & Beardyman

This shit is absolutely amazing. We've posted up on the Manifesto before about the amazing talent that is Beardyman, but this collaboration with Neurosonics with JFB on the wheels of steel and Will Clarke on drums is definitely some next level shizzle ....

[EXCLUSIVE] General Zod returns ... now with added Powerchords!

The General (as he likes to be known around these parts) is BACK once again, and this time he brings Powerchords. Tai's 'Powerchords' that is ... for those who don't know that much about Tai (where the f*ck have you been) he's recently remixed the likes of Sharam Jay, Tomcraft, DJ Godfather and Coburn and has collaborated with the likes of Tim Healey, and most notably D.I.M. with who he produced the marvellous 'Lyposuct' on BoysNoize records last year (and in doing so provided them with about the only thing worth listening to for a good 18 months!).

Now signed to Coco Machete with this new single, 'Powerchords', the Manifesto is delighted to have the first airing of the HUGE Zodiac Cartel remix, dropping soon.
