I've recently been checking out some of M A N I K's debut album Armies of the Night. It's got a number of these deep electronic numbers and it seems to swing between muted soul and funky. The album is apparently inspired by the darker side of New York and the seventies cult film The Warriors.
Look out for a review soon but in the meantime check out this video for a taste. No idea what the video itself is supposed to be about (snow and mild stalking mostly it would appear) but the track is worth a listen.
The album gets released on 23 May on Josh Wink's Ovum label.
