"Jack Maniak is a new one-man project created in 2016 by French musician Jean-Philippe. Living in Paris and also playing in a number of bands, Jean-Philippe felt the need to delve deeper in the Electronic music sounds. Born in the 70’s and having experienced the 80’s as a teenager his love of that era didn’t take long to manifest in his music giving birth to his Synthwave alter ego, Jack Maniak.
For a melodist, exploring this genre is a great opportunity and for Jean-Philippe the idea of writing music inspired by the 80’s but with a modern approach and twist soon turned out to be irresistible. Combining melodic synth leads, hard-rock/heavy rhythm guitars, guitar solos (when needed), big distorted basslines and groovy drum/bass patterns Jack Maniak debuts on JST with “Code 403”.
Filled with hidden references to the decade Jack Maniak grew up into (“Stripe Is Back” - Gremlins, “No Fate” - Terminator 2 and so on) Code 403 is the story of a human teenager with special abilities who is called to face an alien invasion. Will he emerge victorious?"
