You might know Jonnie King as part of the AEONIX duo who have released on labels such as Cenote and Kallias. Now teaming up with Ido, the guys have created something truly emotive and blissful here with ‘Colors’ which features the lovely vocals of Shawni.

First thing that popped to our mind when first listening to this was the old ‘Rennaissance’ deep progressive vibe of the early 00’s, but then of course slowed down and updated to modern day production standards. Just close your eyes and join the journey, this is truly something special.

Next to the outstanding original mix and the ‘teknodub’ which is stripped down of any vocals, we’re welcoming two artists on remix duties who are no stranger of creating something special.

First up it’s fellow Los Angeles resident Lonely Boy who you might know from his releases on labels such as Kitsune, Armada Deep, Futureboogie and Bunny Tiger. He lays down a rather infectious chunky electronic groove without losing sight of the subtle moody elements of the original.

Secondly we’re happy to welcome Hubert Kirchner back on board the Manual family bandwagon after his highly acclaimed ‘Era EP’ release last month. Hubert recoded a bunch of percussive elements turning the song into a subtle but intense tribal builder. Another winner by the talented Dutchman!
