Midnight in a Perfect World: DJ Manny

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

DJ Manny is a Chicago electronic producer and longtime member of the Teklife crew who's been proudly carrying on DJ Rashad's legacy with his own innovative vision of the juke and footwork sound. With a catalog dating back to 2010, DJ Manny has become a staple on cutting-edge club labels Planet Mu Records and Moveltraxx Records, most recently putting out the critically-acclaimed and genre-blurring full-length album Hypnotized on Planet Mu Records in November 2023 and the Escape Reality EP on Moveltraxx Records in February 2024.

DJ Manny's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a strong display of his inventive juke and footwork style, swiftly storming through nearly 30 songs that includes plenty of cuts from his own catalog as well as cuts from other Chicago artists that have been pushing the genre to the forefront throughout the 21st century.
