The vocalist on our new release by Michael Manahan is Ilen Halogram, a professional singer, dancer & actress, who has performed in over 40 musical theather productions, and has performed/recorded with Chaka Khan, Peter Cetera (lead singer of Chicago), Howard McCrary, JahSun, Ras Attitude, The Goddess Alchemy Project, and many others.
Ilen is an accomplished songwriter, with a catalog of over 80 original songs. She was chosen by BMG & Billboard Music as one of the top 10 independent artists of the West Coast in 2007. “Regulate The Deep” features remixes by Dave Pezzner, Chad Neiro, and Jordan Strong.


Uniting Souls, the Seattle-based imprint that started as a leading underground events promoter in 1997, is b…usting forth in 2012 by already issuing its second stellar release of the year. This single features local Seattle DJ legend Michael Manahan and his debut track “Regulate The Deep.” Manahan has been active in the northwest US scene for over twenty years, co-founding the Oracle Gatherings and co-producing the Decibel Festival, two well-established north American dance music events. It’s amazing that after all this time Manahan had yet to release his own production, but finally the time is ripe and “Regulate The Deep” is the result. The track features singer Ilen Halogram delivering a gorgeous, somewhat dreamy vocal over a low-slung understated deep house groove. This atmospheric cut hypnotically draws the listener inside, whether on an after-hours dancefloor or at a sunrise ‘back to mine’ session. The remixes come courtesy of a ‘who’s who’ of Seattle house music producers.
Leading the charge is the incomparable Pezzner (Freerange, Smoke N’ Mirrors) providing a twisted and twisty deep house interpretation as only Pezzner can give. The build on this one should send the nightclub reeling.
Neiro is up next, coming off his recent, acclaimed Park Authority EP for Uniting Souls. Neiro gives the track a subtle, deep Chicago feel using cut-ups of the vocals as rhythmic accents in cahoots with a processed piano line.
Finally, Uniting Souls veteran Jordan Strong adds a pulsing synth pad and a snappy snare to his dubbed-out remix, creating a persistent, bouncy treatment to excite late night dance floors. It’s an undeniably cool package coming at you from Uniting Souls, and just the beginning of what’s in store for the label in 2012.
