'Manuka Honey's tracks are like cliffhangers in the club, always chasing the next climax, drop or plunge into silence and executing them when you least expect it.' - Resident Advisor
Marissa Malik, best known by her stage name Manuka Honey, is a multi-disciplinary artist, DJ and producer at the forefront of Latinx-infused club music coming out of the UK. US-born and London-based, Manuka’s adoration of the Latinx diaspora’s sounds is exuded by her beautifully chaotic DJ sets that have pummeled the sound systems of clubs and festivals internationally, as well as sets on Boiler Room and Keep Hush. She is also co-founder of London’s queer Latinx collective and club night SUZIO.
Manuka’s productions and remixes have earned her a rightful space amongst the catalogues of NAAFI, Promesses, Daytimers and YCO, catching the ears of critics and garnering support from club heavyweights alike. Mirroring her party-starting prowess behind the decks, her debut EP “Industrial Princess”, released May 2021, deftly captures the broad pallet of an artist tuned into the global underground, capable of articulating her influences into a mystic concoction of all that she admires.
Alongside her trail of destruction and dropped jaws, Manuka Honey’s regular appearances on Rinse FM and her residency on Foundation FM are a constant reminder of her unrelenting commitment to furthering the reach of Reggaeton, Brazilian Funk, Terreo, and Dembow through her singular, focussed lens – and her manifold mentions between The Guardian, FACT Magazine, DJ Mag and Mixmag will attest to this.
