MANICS is an indie dance live act comprised of Jordan Deherrera and Chris Sanders and based in San Francisco. Their performances are a medley of indie pop vocals, live bass & synth work, percussion and modulation; accompanied by matching lights and visuals. Since its inception in 2012, the project has developed into a dynamic performance of technology and raw emotion with their music being supported by Odessa, Poolside, & others around the world. In 2019 they signed to Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records, with a full EP slated for release March 8th.
The duo are also the master-minds behind the bay-area indie label POPGANG Records. Founded in 2013, the label features artists and producers across a wide swath of genres and sub-cultures while retaining a cohesive identity built on the punk-DIY mentality turned modern.
