Mannix feat Lisa Shaw - So Much Time
Vienna's Mannix makes a welcome return to the Favouritizm stable, this time enlisting the divine and unmistakable vocal talents of Lisa Shaw on their stunning new collaboration 'So Much Time'. Mannix cooks up a lush bubbling, deep groove with airy synth washes and pretty sweeping strings drizzled throughout, providing the perfect soundtrack for Lisa to enchant us with her dreamy, heartfelt vocals.
"Lisa Shaw has always been a singerI wanted to work with. She has a very unique, strong voice and many of her songs are memorable and emotional. That's why I'm very happy that this project became reality. Production wise the release also underlines my movement towards more deeper, but still soulful sounds which fits the whole song very well!" - Mannix
Mannix has been one of Vienna’s pioneers for good house music alongside Austrian legends Alfi Budin, Lorenzo Al Dino, Peter Pan since he first started DJing in the early 90's..

Later, Mannix and Wax formed a new project Double Jackpot, which stood for unique funky house music in its production and DJing guises. Together WaX and Mannix run the successful radio show 'Crystal Radio' on 98.3 Superfly FM.
