One of the most infamous acts in London, The Manor, return with their huge new track “Out ‘Ere” – their first release following their recent “Weak Days, Strong Nights” EP.
Beginning as three friends from Beckenham, south London scheming on their fag break during college, MCs Danny Graft, Scotty Stacks and Jonny Dutch started fusing UKG to elements of grime and rap to a fierce sense of local pride and a love of their community. Watch here
Starting to put on shows – essentially parties for themselves and the audience – they started building a serious rep. This is what local life sounds like; Inner-city hustle mixed with local love that’s swiftly caught the attention of tastemakers.
Meanwhile they’ve continued to sell out the likes of O2 Academy, KOKO and Brixton Electric last year, as well as major festival circuit players at Wireless, Festival, Lovebox, Reading & Leeds. “Out ‘Ere” places the crew firmly back on the 2018 map, released on their own label Lagboat Records, they’ve announced their return with a sold-out show at the Kentish Town Forum and performances at SW4, Bestival, Rize & Ibiza Rocks this year.
The Manor are doing it right, carving their names ever more widely into a scene that recognises them as creating some of the most interesting and relevant music coming out of the capital. With a regional tour confirmed later in the year, The Manor have taken Beckenham, London, now the rest of the country’s next.
