Mana is producer and composer Daniele Mana from Torino in Italy.
Since 2010 he has been releasing under the moniker Vaghe Stelle, with EPs and two full length albums on labels such as Gang of Ducks, Aisha Devi’s Danse Noire, Astro:Dynamics and most recently, Nicolas Jaar’s Other People records. He is also a member of One Circle with Lorenzo Senni and Francesco Fantini.
His new EP ‘Creature‘ is released on Kode9’s Hyperdub label. Over eight tracks, he ingests Shostakovitch, Drexciya, Darkthrone, Frank Ocean and Paul Lansky, and refashions them into an almost operatic record – a rich, melodrama of dark tension and excitable in-your-face synth melodies.
