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."

Party Illegal’s PlayPlay is one of Durham's busiest DJs, and along with their high-energy DJ sets, PlayPlay has embarked on a new project. They are now performing their original music out live using a new hardware setup consisting of a sampler, sequencer, drum machine, and Moog synthesizer. Playplay’s sound is heavily influenced by the early jungle, Baltimore club, & acid house that they already weave in their DJ sets, & they are stoked to be sharing their own improvisational material with everyone.

PlayPlay has shared stages with Big Freedia, MC Lyte, TT the Artist, Dai Burger, Abdu Ali, Le1f, Double Duchess, MikeQ, Nadus, Jubilee, Cakes Da Killa and others. They are also the creator and energetic force behind several themed parties, including a long-running 90's party, an industrial/goth night and a ladies of the 80's party. This summer, PlayPlay plans on putting the focus on music production, and will be releasing their first EP in the fall.
