No Mana Delivers Grungy & Epic New Album ‘I Contain Flashing Images’

No Mana’s latest LP I Contain Flashing Images has arrived via Monstercat. Merging grungy techno and electro house, No Mana showcases some of his best throughout the 15-track project.

No Mana has a strong affinity for ‘flashing images,’ viewing them through a lens of beauty and aesthetics. This concept is deeply integrated into his music and art, reflecting his vision and tendency to associate elements with vivid, flashy visuals. ‘I Contain Flashing Images’ is a raw portrayal of his persona, illustrating how he absorbs music, visuals, friends, irresponsible nights, dark jokes, juicy video games, Space Mountain, and the unexplainable colors he sees when he scratches his eyes.

The self-made album artwork channels these aspects through illustrations of stars, swords, eyes, and a vibrant palette of colors and shapes, embracing a minimalist yet maximalist approach. The 15-track collection guides listeners through a journey of celestial-meets-nostalgic elements, tapping into sounds inspired by the progressive house era of artists like Kaskade and Calvin Harris. It features collaborations with SOFI, Leyla Diamondi, vowl., Feed Me, EMSKI, Voicians, Bertie Scott, Isis Rose, and Dualistic.

I Contain Flashing Images is unsurprisingly spectacular. No Mana has delivered some stand-out records throughout the years and that continues with the release of his latest EP. Pairing fantastic vocals to productions with electric sound design and pristine production quality makes for a notable experience and ensures that No Mana is an artist that you return to. He steps up with each LP and new music from No Mana is always so exciting.

No Mana shares, “The name ‘I Contain Flashing Images’ came from when I had been asked to put a warning frame at the start of my videos. After doing animation for teasers, YouTube visualizers, concert visuals and even some for other performing artists, flashing images was like this mandatory element in order to fully represent the excitement of the music or whatever context it was in. I wasn’t just going to slap a warning label on every single visual I do. Instead, I decided to make it an album, and now a part of my brand forever. Now no one can say I didn’t tell them so. I make uncomfortable visuals. My brand is now a warning sign for it.
