ARONA MANE - 2096: Retro/Future
Let me direct you to the 10-track collection of collaborations, bootlegs and remixes, below and make a hypothetical prediction. If you take this with you to the gym, you will not need a trainer and likely have your best work out ever. ARONA MANE commands the material. Like a good trainer, he knows the material, lives it, breathes it, and infuses his own styles into it. Not to mention the preparation and practice, rhythm and energy, and love for what he does. Also, and maybe most importantly, like a good trainer, he needs an excellent organization supporting him and from stream counts alone, you can see he has fans coming out in droves all pumped up.
“2096 refers to bringing the golden age of hip-hop into the future. ‘96 is widely regarded as the best year in hip-hop, which saw the release of some of the now classic albums from Jay Z, The Fugees, Snoop, 2Pac, Nas, Outkast and The Roots.
Musing these greats, I wanted to present an actual body of work very early on, in an effort to introduce my sound in a bigger way. The electronic music scene is generally dominated by artists who release single after single, which is cool, but since I was a kid, I’ve always fallen in love with artists because of their albums as a whole - I want to deliver that feeling with my music” - Arona Mane
