Manu Dia releases “Promise,” an atmospheric upbeat track exploring the meditative side of electronica. The Spaniard brings a variety of elements into his compositions, utilizing textural samples and soundscapes to create his own brand of beautifully refreshing music. “Promise” was released on acclaimed producer TOKiMONSTA’s label, Young Art Records.
The song comes off of Manu Dia’s highly anticipated debut full-length project. Written while travelling by train through Romania, “Promise” is Manu Dia’s favorite song he’s ever made. The song came to life as his girlfriend slept on his shoulder, inspiring him to capture this innocent moment. “Promise,” in the artist’s words, is “essentially about the feeling of being in love. I think its the most emotional song in the album without having lyrics or a single word spoken—which I think is the beauty of this project and electronic music as a whole. After having had a pretty lonely and weird year, I had this realization of how grateful I was to have someone like my girlfriend that is in this journey with me. I am immensely grateful for my girlfriend and the support she gives me. This song is for her.”
Inspired by his unique upbringing between a former ancient kingdom in Spain and the buzzing hub that is Brussels, Manu Dia makes music that tells a story through sounds. He describes his music as a blend of dancefloor-inspired euphoria and ephemeral feelings that draw inspiration from life itself. Prior to the release of “Promise,” Manu Dia revealed “Tuesday Morning,” his first single off of his upcoming LP. While Manu is still in the early stages of his career, it is evident that his music stands in a lane of its own.
