Ase Manual
Ase Manual
Ase Manual is a New Jersey electronic musician whose melodic cuts draw on a wealth of dance music styles, from Jersey club to house. Last year he released his debut album — a beautifully crafted collection of 2 a.m. tracks titled Gems — via Like That Records, a label he co-owns with New York DJ Marvelito.
Today, he's sharing "50,000 Just To Book Me," a nuanced instrumental with a build that creeps up on you. Dinky keys skip across distorted gun shot blasts in the intro, evoking an image of kids playing in a war zone.
"This song is about progressive spirit," Manual told The FADER over email. "And money. For the cover art, I painted on a photo by Richard Ross @auniqueting."

PlayPlay
PlayPlay creatively interweaves nostalgic hip-hop and house classics into both her DJ sets and her music production, which are largely composed of city-specific sounds – namely Chicago juke and footwork, Baltimore club, NYC house, New Orleans bounce and Miami bass. An extremely versatile DJ, she also favors dancehall, cumbia, global bass, jungle/early hardcore/breakbeat, acid house, EBM, industrial and 90s nostalgia all around. Her ultimate goal is to be in constant musical conversation with the crowd, speaking across generation, race, ethnicity, gender identity and sexuality to create an all-inclusive dance floor.

PlayPlay has opened for Big Freedia, MC Lyte, TT the Artist, Mighty Mark, Le1f, Jubilee, MikeQ, Cakes Da Killa and others. She is an organizer and resident DJ of the Pinhook's largest dance party, Party Illegal. She is also the creator and energetic force behind several themed parties at the Pinhook, including a long-running 90's party, an industrial/goth night and a queer glam rock party. In short, PlayPlay's style is about as diverse as they come.
