MNTRA joins the Spotlight Mix Series


MNTRA is based in Southern California and has cultivated a funky-fresh and avant-garde style of house music that draws on the swing of tech. It comes with big basslines and rich melodies on labels like Tons & Tons, OKNF, and Electro Swing Thing and has hit the top spot in the Beatport charts before now. He has played plenty of the West Coast’s finest clubs and events and is now set to make his mark on Europe with this latest release.

His music is steeped in emotion and elicits a visceral response from the audience each time. MNTRA’s love for building community with an emphasis on transformative music & events has led him to land where he currently is – a beloved part of his ever-growing musical community and underground scene.

MNTRA steps up to Justin Martin’s What To Do label with catchy new single, ‘Waiting’, featuring Victoria Rae. The brilliant ‘Waiting’ has heavy low ends and rubbery broken beats that soon lock you into the fat groove. Wonky synths bring plenty of dance floor impact, and the crisp percussion drives things forward. The icing on the cake is a great vocal from Victoria Rae that brings subtle soul and plenty of seductive emotions next to the futuristic melodies.

 We asked him to drop on the Spotlight mix today, check it out below and grab it here.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
