Out now, the powerful two-track EP marks MANTi’s sophomore outing on the highly regarded Mexican label, following the release of ‘Defiance’ in 2023.

Having debuted on Akumandra back in May 2023 with her critically acclaimed single ‘Defiance’, hotly tipped LA-based producer MANTi now returns to the Mexican imprint one year later for her eagerly anticipated second outing, as she presents her latest blistering new two-track ‘December Reverie’ EP.

Returning to the CDMX-based label now armed with an impressive string of additional career releases on the likes of Marginalia, Borders of Light, LSF21+, Einmusika, New Tab and Sequence Music over the past twelve months, MANTi’s latest release sees the Iranian talent showcase her diverse production credentials as she embarks on a mind-altering journey through consciousness on another remarkable musical opus.

The EP begins with the absorbing opener ‘No Turning Back’. Weaving with hypnotic purpose and melodic dissonance across its trippy seven-and-a-half-minute duration, the spellbinding cut delivers everything we’ve come to expect and more from the in-form producer, who continues to showcase her talents for creating highly nuanced and impactful electronic music.

On the flip, proceedings take a darker turn with the introduction of the title track and closer, ‘December Reverie’. Toying with sinister soundscapes and deep, rolling basslines, MANTI’s innate knack for forging command, peak-time melodic techno is placed front and center, as she rounds out her first full-length EP on Akumandra in trademark style.

Speaking about the release, MANTi commented:

“I’m super excited to be returning to Akumandra following my first release with them in 2023. ‘December Reverie’ and ‘No Turning Back’ are both tracks that showcase the more emotional side of my sound, and I couldn’t think of a better home for them.”
