Electro-soul composer Manic Focus is happy to announce his highly-anticipated fifth studio album, Minds Rising, will drop on Friday, April 21, 2017.
The second single, “Putting All Of My People On” featuring ProbCause is out Friday 3/24 via iTunes and Spotify. Manic Focus blends a gargantuan trap production with ProbCause's laser-sharp lyricism, creating a track that strikes harmonious balance between rap and electronic music. This track is a must for party playlists and cranking as loudly as possible, and just a taste of what lies ahead with Manic Focus.
Minds Rising, a work nearly two years in the making, is a flawless fusion of electronic funk, soul, future bass & classic era hip-hop. It is Manic Focus' first full length LP since the 2014 release of Cerebral Eclipse and showcases sample-free, 100% original compositions laden with rowdy rhymes and vocal features from ProbCause, Psalm One, funky horn arrangements from Russ Liquid, dreamy top line hooks from Jennifer Hartswick, Carlile, and more.
