About Mani Rios
Mani Rios is a British music producer making his own style of dance music, generally centred around his roots and influences from Drum and Bass and House music from the 90s. Influences start from his earliest memories of hearing Michael Jackson’s Thriller album as a kid, through to his love of the dance music scene emerging in the late 80s and early 90s, particularly Acid House, House, Rave and Jungle.
“It’s never too late to pursue your dreams”
After falling in love with Drum & Bass around 1995, he bought a couple of Technics 1200s, a mixer and started to make mixtapes and CDs daily. Many of these mixes are online and also available on Soundcloud.
After many years, a childhood passion for making music re-emerged to take centre stage around 2011.
