A violinist by trade and a producer by nature, Manatee Commune makes his mark with ridiculously catchy melodies, sparkly synthesis, and energetic percussion. In the last year this overachiever released two critically acclaimed albums, an EP in the winter and an LP in the fall with a plentiful amount of featured vocalists. Though falling in the realm of electronic music, MC's shows have proven to be flamboyant and lively as he jumps from violin to guitar to drums to keyboard with vibrant projected visuals.
