DJ Manny – Hypnotized
Hailing from the Chicago suburb of Harvey, DJ Manny, born and bred in the heart of footwork culture, brings a captivating energy to his latest release, Hypnotized.

DJ Phil)’, to the dynamic intensity of pieces like ‘Ooh Baby’, a dubstep-infused gem co-produced with the legendary DJ Rashad. A testament to Manny’s prowess, this album effortlessly showcases DJ Manny’s exceptional skill and natural ability to push musical boundaries.
