M a n a 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 Nicolas Jaar’s Other People. He is also a member of One Circle with Lorenzo Senni and Francesco Fantini. His 2017 EP ‘Creature’ was out on Kode9’s Hyperdub label, which recently released his new album ‘Seven Steps Behind’: listening to it is like stepping into a dream, with all the curious emotions and buried meaning that involves. Yet for all its restless, shifting energy it manages to hold both dissonance and melody in sweet proportion.
