Myele Manzanza

The name Myele Manzanza might not sound quite as familiar as his hyped music group Electric Wire Hustle but the New Zealand-based drummer has successfully pinned his reputation as one of the group’s powerhouse. Myele has formed a trio alongside Mark De Clive-Lowe and Matt Dal Din and has recently covered the majestic “Montara” (originally performed by Bobby Hutcherson).

Soothing synth sound paired with unique drum work caught my ears upon listening almost immediately. As a newfound EWH fan, I find Myele’s stuff a bit hard to absorb at first but it’s a grower, making a better impression with every listen.
