This is a masterclass in footwork production by one of Teklife's leading figures. Raised in Harvey on the south-side of Chicago, DJ Manny has been footworking since the age of ten.

The Footwork sound has developed in unison with the dance style that accompanies it, and Manny embodies this synergy.

He is without doubt one of the best dancers on the scene so when he steps into the studio,he knows instinctively how to create tracks that make you want to move your feet.

Instead of relying on chopped up samples, DJ Manny is more inclined to pickup the microphone himself, and this gives Greenlight an original and individual personality.On the opening track Way you Move, his flow is soulful and almost verging on melodic.

His laid back drawl sounds equally great on club bangers like Life in This Bitch and If U Want It.

As a young man, DJ Manny was the protégé of the late DJ Rashad, and Rashad's influence reverberates through classic footwork tracks like Boop Me Down and I'll Hurt Ya Baby.

Elsewhere DJ Manny explores different moods to great effect. Ghost Out is atmospheric and menacing, with a sparse, minimal rhythm and fearsome low end pulsing through siren synths.

Life In This Bitch is a defiant statement of self-affirmation, and Zancrash feat. DJ Taye is uplifting and dreamy,with complex rhythms evocative of vintage jungle records.DJ Taye makes a significant contribution to this record, collaborating with DJ Manny on 5 productions including the title track..

Greenlight also features guest appearances from DJ Lucky, Gant-Man and Sucia.
