No Mana’s ‘Electromag’ compilation has finally arrived
The Electromag compilation initially started off as a joke that was never meant to see the light of day. No Mana, EDDIE, and Bentley Dean had been sitting around poking fun at electro-house when the concept came to be. “Now, I think the joke has gone a little too far; but we’ll go the extra mile,” said No Mana in a press release.
The extra mile brings forth tracks from Wolfgang Gartner, EDDIE and Bad Disk, Fox Hunt, Moki, Bentley Dean, James Egbert, and more. Electromag throws listeners back into the mid-2000s, during the era of YouTube rips from the budding platform and back when MySpace was the “next big thing.” Each track finds a slightly more modernized edge, but it truly maintains the “retro” aesthetic of the mid-2000s.
“Can’t Say No” acted as the compilation’s lead single, and sits as the EP’s first track. It’s a fitting placement for a song that introduces how Electromag intends to honor electro-house. Tracks such as Bad Disk’s “Over & Over & Over Again” carry forth a more club-esque atmosphere while continuing to honor the genre at hand, while singles like Wolfgang Gartner’s “The Original” pay homage to the genre in a perfect way.
Featuring tracks from No Mana, Tommy Trash, James Egbert, 80M, Bad Disk, KEETZ, ELAC, Sysdemes, Bentley Dean, Uppermost, Fox Hunt, Moki, EDDIE, and Wolfgang Gartner, Electromag is a must-listen for those looking for a nostalgic fix from a decade past.
