Denver-based producer Manic Focus is an artist of many talents. As a magician, he uses sleight of hand to pull objects out of thin air. As an electronic artist, he executes similarly impossible sonic acts with his vibrant, genre-defying music. But his strengths lie not only in the musical and magical: what also makes Manic Focus stand apart is his mental triumphs.

Manic Focus’ unique style - defined by a hybrid of electronic, funk, soul, and hip-hop - has helped the producer cultivate a fervent fanbase captivated by his immersive studio trickery and vibrant creative spirit - a combination that has led him to performances at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Hulaween, North Coast Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Camp Bisco, Wakaan Festival, Summer Camp Music Festival, and multiple opening slots at Red Rocks in support of Zhu, Emancipator, Pretty Lights, and more.

Now, Manic Focus releases his 7th studio album, Never Not Blue, a new full-length project that showcases the producer’s vast growth as a multi-genre artist, including songs with the blues-infected electronic style of his earlier work as well as a wide range of modern bass music influences. Having consistently evolved over the past decade, fleshing out his sound to incorporate new approaches to genre, songwriting, and composition, Manic Focus’ new album is an amalgamation of the various styles and sounds he’s explored over the years. In many ways, Never Not Blue is a career retrospective - a look back at where Manic Focus began, and just how far he’s come.


From the deepest and darkest soul-snatching pits of the inescapable swampy hellscape known as Florida, arose an unlikely glimmer of light...The Sponges. Blending classic scrunchy-faced funk with next level bass house production, The Sponges have carved their own lane in electronic music. Having gained support from artists such as GRiZ, Zeds Dead, Tchami, AC Slater, The Floozies, Manic Focu,s and Jauz, it’s clear that their infectious sound is the perfect addition to peak party hours.

Due to their deep-rooted love for hippie fests and nightclub debauchery, the duo’s mission has always been to blend sounds, bend bodies, and deliver the most fun and energetic listening experiences to audiences everywhere. After FIVE #1 records on Beatport, The Sponges are well on their way to establishing themselves as one of the greatest acts to ever grace the sonic wasteland known as the electronic music industry. Prepare your playlists for the dukes of disco, the future of funk, the lords of the low-end, the czars of certified bangers, the emperors of ecstasy, the rulers of the rave, the bassline bastards, and the gods of groove as they gear up for an explosive year in 2022!
