Starting in the late 90s, Manoptic (Albuquerque, NM) has developed a style that blends influences from Breakbeat, Drum and Bass, Trance, Downtempo, and other musical styles.
"My hope is that people enjoy listening to the music as much as I enjoy making the music," he says. "But having people listen is a perk, it's about output and having fun."
In late 2008, Manoptic partnered with fellow Acidplanet artist, DJ Kenneth A (Baltimore, MD) for the A.Eye Project. A.Eye is a collaborative effort that blends the unique styles of both artists in weird and wonderful ways.
Manoptic continues to produce his own solo music, as well as investing time in other personal projects.
