Austrian DJ/Producer Mannix unleashes an amazing cover version of the beautiful Melba Moore disco classic ‘Standing Right Here‘ for Favouritizm. Enlisting the help of soulful star Dina Vass, who delivers a shimmering vocal performance, Mannix puts his own outstanding spin on the song, all recorded with live instruments, treating us to a feast of stunning brass and sweeping string performances to shimmy, shake and get down to!
Mannix, born 1974 in Vienna has been into Dance music ever since 1986 when he bought his first records and finally started Djing 1990. He’s been one of Vienna’s pioneers for good house music alongside Austrian legends Alfi Budin, Lorenzo Al Dino, Peter Pan or to name but a few. After finishing school he started working behind the counter at Virgin Megastores Vienna to finance his studies at University. A few years later he got Dance buyer, supervisor and finally sales manager for Virgin Megastores Austria and has established a very good and big vinyl department that is seen as an own record shop by customers. In 2001 he left Virgin to concentrate on product management and marketing at Planet Entertainment/Austria. In late 1999 he formed Whipped Creem together with DJ Krismas and DJ Wax to move to the next level. From this time on Mannix has been a producer, promoter and music journalist (DJ Magazine Hype Chart contributor, Tilllate Magazine House Reviewer) and has released on labels like AM:PM, Go Beat, Generate Music, Soundmen On Wax, Polydor or V2. After splitting up with Krismas, Mannix and Wax formed a new project Double Jackpot, Which stood for unique funky house music in its production and DJing guises.
