In Episode 61 I feature the artists, Manu Riga, Solid Stone, Rise and Fall, and Fe Malefiz. I also feature three releases: Versatile House Music Vol. 11 out on City Life; Manu Riga’s Surrounded out on Bonzai Progressive; and In The Mix 002 – Progressive Sessions out on Bonzai Progressive.
Set 1: Manu Riga and Solid Stone
The first set highlights two tracks from Manu Riga’s Surrounded release, appearing here as the second and fifth tracks. Also of note are two tracks by Solid Stone from his latest release, Introspection, out on Coldharbour Recordings.
The Solid Stone project started back in early 2010, behd [sic] it the canadian producer started to make his mark. His very first releases were already supported by likes of Above and Beyond, Markus Schulz to name a few. [Once] he was settled in with his own sound, it became clear that Solid Stone would be a name to look out for in the near future.

Set 2: Manu Riga & Versatile House Music Vol. 11
Here you’ll note two more tracks from Manu Riga, both again from their latest Surrounded release. Also significant in this set are two tracks from the featured compilation, Versatile House Music Vol. 11.
Manu riga was formed in 2004 by Adriaan Baussens and Sven van Hove. Soon they released their first vinyl on Okina Music. “Good feeling” in the Dr Kucho remix was hitting the Belgium dance charts on the 22th [sic] spot in 2005. Sadly distribution wasn’t [meeting] demand. [As a result of] this disappointment Manu Riga didn’t really [feel at] home [with their label]. Creativity had no freedom …
[Taking] a break of two years [enabled] Sven & Adriaan [to give] Manu Riga a second chance. But this time they promised they would only follow their heart[s] and do what they like to do. [Then they sent their] 2005 track “Tai chi girl” to Bonzai Music [and] found their home.

NOTE: Currently Manu Riga is simply Adriaan Baussens.
