After “Sounds of a New Generator”, the debut album of the Swedish duo Auto-Auto, the band and their label, Substream, released the follow-up “Totem EP”, a free online release under a Creative Commons license, which was accompanied by a remix contest, with remix kits being freely released for the all the songs on the EP. This remix contest, organized with a variety of partners (including the Swedish publication Musikermagasin), featured prizes for the best remixes and some were selected for official release. A selection of remixes was also chosen to be featured as part of a freely downloadable online EP to be permanently hosted in the Connexion Bizarre media section with full credit to the remixers involved.

MaNi is MaNi of Guilt Trip, on his own two feet he remixes and creates. That wich does not fit the Guilt Trip becomes MaNi. MaNis’ experience from electronic music ranges back through the years to when he was a young teenager sodomising his brothers drum machine and synthesisers. MaNi is MaNi-fold, diverse, unexpected and anarchic. You never know what you get, but you do know it will always be intriguing, fascinating and simply wonderful.
