Manny Phesto & Julian Fairbanks - Social Capital EP
A message from Jake Hienitz:
"Earlier this year, I met up with Manny and Julian, on some let’s-change-the-game-type-shit. We sat in the MCAD library and brainstormed a couple notebook sheets worth of ideas for progression. Manny told me that he wanted to create an online space – that only local artists would have access to – where new shows, videos, announcements would be posted, and the artists could work together in a sort of “co-op” street team fashion. I asked him if he had ever heard the theory of Social Capital, to which he answered, no. Personally, I knew I would be able to create with this dude, because of the way he took to this term and literally created it his life motto/EP title. Mista Manuel has something I like to call an “ol’ soul”, possessing bars (on bars, on bars) representative of a grounded wisdom, far beyond its years."
