The Radical Remixes of Dark Intensity – A Nexus Radio Interview

presented by

Dark Intensity is a regular at Miami Week, and this year we sat down with him at the Sennheiser popup studio in the Radio Lounge Miami.
Remixes are a staple of the modern EDM genre. They give a chance to take old beats and make something new, and few people know that better than Manny Martinez, known to fans by his stage-name Dark Intensity.

Dark Intensity takes inspiration from all over the shop to create the kind of hits that will play in every club. He’s been on billboard charts and won awards for his work, and he’s not afraid to share the truth about his process.

For Dark Intensity, it’s all about the way a track stays with you. He wants to create that people want to go back to with a catchy sound and nice vocals. In his own words:

“I think one of the major elements is if you hear a track for the first couple of times, that it sticks to your brain and your mind, and then you’re humming it later. The other component, or element, would be just having a nice vocal stand out in the music.”

Speaking of the pandemic, he also talked about his bad experience with COVID-19.
“I got sick with COVID,” he said. “I got sick for like three months there. I had to be on oxygen. It was pretty bad.” He said he regretted not wearing a mask but that he’s still here and is feeling better now.

It seems like he’s back to total health because he’s been hard at work, and he’s just dropped a 28-track whopper of an album. Side Effect came out on the 25th of March and featured some great tracks like “Smooth Operator,” “Make You Mine,” and “How We Feel .”In just a few weeks, it’s already had tens of thousands of listens on Spotify. So, if you feel like checking out the sound of Dark Intensity, then why not give it a listen?
