It has been clear to anyone in the Belgian underground scene: Mankiyan is a true gem and on a steady rise as an excellent selector.
Emerging from a desire to fill a void in nightlife, she has been able to seek out, continuously evolve and refine her own style in a couple of years time.
The result is a bass- and rhythm-heavy sound with enough margin to ex- periment with grimey dancehall guilty pleasures, hinting at the internet culture she grew up with.
In short, she’s pushing a sound that’s addictively mysterious and mysteri- ously intoxicating.
