Malaysia based Road to Mana is really making a big impression. The former global Underground associate has a serene house sound that is full of melody and rich grooves, here exemplified across three new tracks.

Opener Chains is tense. It has vocals that speak of real pain and turbulent synths that reach up to the heavens. It’s the sort of dramatic track to really make an impact. Deeper At Last is then more zoned out, with subtle pads and supple drums all bringing a woozy vibe that is perfect horizontal. Last of all, Chris Maico Schmidt flips Chains into an epic track with big vocals that are laid over the drums. It sweeps up to the heavens and is the sort of trance inducing cut to really stand out.
