We welcome back for the third time with one of our favourites here at Decoded to bring in the New Year; with none other than Miss Mants with an epic Breaks mix.
Heading from the capital of Estonia, Tallinn, Maria (aka Miss Mants) has started her musical background at a quite early stage. Studying classical music at the Tallinn Music School, playing the piano for 12 years and her family’s music background both ensured her path in music in the future.
Starting on the radio in her hometown also allowed her to try herself out behind the decks and it did not take too long until she started writing her own tunes in collaboration with the local breaks fanatics.
She’s been heavily influenced by the sound of the early 2000s drum and bass and of course later on it led to the love of breaks music. Some of her main influences include Specimen A, Far Too Loud, Breakfastaz, Ctrl Z, Screwface, Backdraft, Dopamine, Beatman & Ludmilla or Vent. She lived in many cities around the world where she could expand her musical spectrum helped her to incorporate lots of different elements to her own style. From the hip-hop influenced New York or Florida and finally the core of breaks music, London.
Moving to Budapest in 2012 finally gave her the opportunity to shift her main area of focus to music production in order to achieve a more profound sound. She is ready to bring back some of the nicest, fattest breaks to the anyway heavily house music influenced mid-tempo culture.
