mano for g-shock

You may recognize the face above from the background of Saturday Night Live’s recent season finale musical performance, or maybe from the multi-million viewer televised Hurricane Sandy benefit at Madison Square Garden. Anyone who attended last year’s world-wide Watch the Throne tour or ever goes to see a certain Mr. West, has definitely witnessed his work. Now it’s time for you to meet this DJ, producer, and mastermind behind the Chicago-based outfit Treated Crew, Million $ Mano. A good friend of ours for the last eight or so years, it’s been unreal to watch his phenomenal rise to playing on stages around the world and producing tracks for chart toppers and indie artists alike. His appearance in NYLON Guys this month features a day in the life, from rolling through Chicago on his motorcycle to hours logged in the studio, all while keeping time with G-Shock. Check out page 30 of this month’s issue to learn more about this rising star and enjoy the “Swimming Pools (Mano 93 nostalgia remix)” below.
