Shane Dangers iamMANOLIS, of 🇬🇷Greece, is 1 of my fave retrowave makers.. his music is like a love affair of italodisco meets 80s spacesynth meets boogiefunk which he interprets thru sonic realization to become the most suave and romantic+immaculate dream/prom/officewave, with overtones of lush sophistipop, french touch, also a bit of freestyle influence perhaps.. 💎iamMANOLIS💎 put time/effort into these songs and it shows when you play it soft or loud on yr DiGiTaL hOmE sTeReO sysytem ❤💎❤ Favorite track: Wave.

about

'iamMANOLIS is a multi-instrumentalist from Greece who draws his influences from the 70’s and 80’s and its omnipresent synths, disco feel and retro-futuristic fervor. Dayte is a collection of twelve instrumental songs which abundantly borrows from the era’s stripped-down funk and electro-pop shockwaves, if not attempts to emulate it. Whether in sound or aesthetics, iamMANOLIS is no tribute giver or revivalist; his work is not infused with the nostalgia of bygone wonders; rather it appears the man may be trying to reenact and re-erect the essence of eighties bliss with powerfully constructed tunes, whose saccharine titles “My Future Girlfriend,” ‘After Sunset,” “Escape Vacations” simply hit the spot. iamMANOLIS clings to the vestiges of the period’s glorious and high-spirited ways in a non-wry, non-ironic fashion, Dayte being a celebration, or rather a conjuring up of the liberalization and laissez-faire the time period saw, hence the pervasive upbeatness and vitality.' 24ourmusic.net

'The funk runs as high as the emotions in this absolutely tremendous odyssey into 80s synthscapes. The melodies are incredible and the arrangements are flawless. Manolis continues to be one of my favourite producers in the 80s inspired synth scene and his productions always have an air of perfect 80s understanding ' Synthetix.fm
