The next Manasseh Meets The Equalizer album, ‘Shining’, was released in 1996, coinciding with the collapse of Acid Jazz and finally, ‘Step Like Pepper’ came out in 2003 featuring vocals from Knati P.
Nick has since produced countless tracks, remixes and albums from world class musicians including amongst others, Pama International, Emeliana Torrini, Lee Perry for Rob Da Bank, Brother Culture’s ‘Isis (including tracks ‘Supernova’ and ‘Rider’) and Earl 16’s Roots Man Dance with an album on it’s way.
Most recently and notable are the wave of Roots Garden Productions storming the UK reggae charts produced by Nick Manasseh, beginning in 2004 with Johnny Osbourne’s ‘Black Star Liner’. Recent releases have included singers Ava Leigh, Luciano, Ras Zacchari, Levi Rhythm, Bob Skeng, Dark Angel, Cate Ferris and Brother Culture. One of the latest releases, Manasseh Meets Praise, ‘The Struggle Continues’ features live viola player Michael Pagulatos.
Nick also mixes the Roots Garden Showcase, performed for the 2nd time last year and touring next Spring 2013.
Branching out into other projects, Nick recently did sound design for the new Julian Temple film about London and has been working a with 12-piece band from the Solomon Islands, Narasirato, producing their album and mixing their live show, something Nick has sometimes done with the likes of Pama International and Soothsayers meet Johnny Clarke.
Since the soundsystem began in 1985, Nick has been a DJ all over the world, travelling to countless countries and continents and still continues to do so, working with MCs Brother Culture, Danny Red, Earl 16, Dark Angel and Kenny Knots.
Nick Manasseh has recently completed a major studio upgrade and is now based at The Yard in West London near Ladbroke Grove. As well as all the usual production work Nick is known for, he is now able to record full bands, drum sessions and any kind of large scale over-dubbing. Analogue mastering is also available, with 2 track tape transfer as an option.
