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.
Mannix on Lisa Shaw in his recent interview with The Underground:
So your new collaboration is coming soon with Lisa Shaw, “So Much Time” on Favouritizm — tell us about the song?
The song marks a very important release for me as it is quite an emotional thing, music wise and lyric wise as well. I think many tracks these days are actually no songs, but this is one and that’s what it makes special. We have got some real instrumentation in it (live strings for instance) and it did take quite some time to finish it. I think that’s what you can hear in it.
How did you hook up with Lisa?
For myself there are only a few singers that I really had the aim to working with one day. It makes no sense to me to feature this or that vocalist on numerous productions and therefore to ask the unsual suspects to do a vocal track together. Lisa is very up my street as she doesn’t do business with everyone. She’s quite picky with the guys she works with. Same goes for me. Lisa Shaw has a very unique, emotional voice and her songwriting is outstanding too. Together with the above mentioned personality she has been on my list for quite some time. It was a dream for me when she agreed on the project and when I heard her first vocal takes.
