Summer Set Music Festival @ Somerset, 2012 - Day 3
John McCarten or as most people have come to know him “Manic Focus” is a Minnesota native that now lives in Chicago and has been having a monster year traveling all over playing some of the grooviest shows on the planet. Early on he channeled his love for music through playing the classical piano and used that knowledge of musical composition moving forward in his careers in both producing and djing. He then took that passion for music and fused hip-hip, funk and soul with his own dark mellow baselines that set him apart and gave him an identity in the heavily saturated electronic music scene. Manic Focus has been busy with some of the largest festivals in the U.S. as well as touring all over the country with the PLM (Pretty Lights Music) Crew. PLM has a stronghold in Colorado and seems to be a perennial powerhouse when it comes to the artist announcements coming from Global Dance with Pretty Lights headlining 2013 and 2014 being riddled with members of PLM music. This year at Decadence NYE (Denver) we will get a chance to see Manic Focus tear up the Bass Arena on December 30th setting the tone for the likes of Exmag, Paper Diamond, and Bassnectar. His slightly dark melodic bass, and electro soul/future funk will be a perfect primer to the absolutely stacked day at the Bass Arena.
