Amidst the lush environs of his northwest roots, Manatee Commune has fermented an organically molded electronic sound that has been saturating festivals and teasing the synapses of audiophiles over the last few years, earning him the title of best electronic artist by the Seattle Weekly. With violin arrangements, nuanced programming and pressure-sensitive LED drum breaks peppering the audio-visual experience of his participatory live performances. Manatee aka Grant Eadie’s tracks have grown tentacles that stretch deep into the dancefloor, fueled by natural overtones that he extracts from field recordings. Today, he debuts his new single “What We’ve Got” featuring Flint Eastwood’s Jax Anderson. the track comes off his forthcoming release, due out this fall on Bastard Jazz.
Manatee Commune, recently re-invented his live show, refining the ingredients that keep his crowds dancing and hungry for more. The resulting Thistle EP amplifies the key elements that get Manatee Commune audiences bouncing, while cultivating his warm and textured production aesthetic to further complexity. Manatee Commune will tour this this summer with Shallou, starting August 10th in San Diego, CA.
