As a distinct producer flourishing in the West Coast bass music scene, a DJ who understands the importance of the listener, and label mate of the forward-thinking brand ‘We Got This’, Chase Manhattan displays a truly inspirational love for music. After an EP release on Substruk Records under his belt and another on the way via Vermin Street, he is quickly becoming a fan favorite while consistently pushing forward in his journey as an artist. His work as a producer is grounded in a sense of familiarity with which the listener is instantly at home, while adding new flavors resulting in a sound all of his own. Currently he has garnered support from several highly acclaimed heavyweights, including Digi G’Alessio, Juke Ellington,Buzz Trillington, & Barisone.
A Pacific Northwest-native, Chase Manhattan currently resides in Portland, Oregon. This versatile DJ, with an eclectic variety of club music at his disposal, has the ability to read the mood of the crowd with precision in any given scenario. By receiving offers to play throughout the West Coast, he has shared the stage with notable acts such as Kastle, Rusko, Steve Aoki, MSTRKRFT, SPL, Russ Liquid and numerous others.
As an early adopter of the recent ‘trap’ genre that has taken the electronic scene by storm, Chase Manhattan is always pushing the boundaries of the latest ‘status quo’. Although the core of his music production has been primarily established in low-frequency sounds, his roots are heavily influenced by a hip-hop rhythm and melody. Ultimately, the genre or style of music he creates is not his focal point, the listener is. It’s this drive that keeps his infectious tunes bouncing around in your head, long after the music stops.
