Intelligent Manners
(Influenza Media, Liquid Brilliants, All Street, Golden Orb, Respect)

Intelligent Manners aka Dmitriy Sabekiya, breaking drum and bass producer, hails from Saint Petersburg in Russia. Although his first acquaintance with drum & bass music dates back to 1996, it was not until the turn of the millennium when Intelligent Manners started devoting much time to learning how to compose drum & bass tracks. And few years later, his first tunes were played by DJ Gvozd on popular Russian drum & bass radio show “Pirate Station”.

In late 2007, Gvozd’s label Respect Records released Intelligent Manners’ debut “Praise The Lord” as part of “Saint Petersburg drum & bass compilation – Respect 6”. With a follow-up release (“Do It Now!” / “I Lost You Baby”) in the spring of 2008 on Russian digital label Liquid Brilliants Records, and more airplay on established UK radio stations such as the Liquid Mondays@KOOL FM and Chrissy Chris@1XTRA, Intelligent Manners continues to receive support from the drum & bass scene.

Watch out for a number of forthcoming releases signed on imprints such as Influenza Media (BEL), Golden Orb Records (AUS), as well as All Street Recordings (BRA). Smooth!

Forthcoming releases:
“Baby, I’m Falling Too” – Influenza Media 12′
“Music Take Your Mind” – All Street Recordings – ASTRDIG002 – 2008
“Feeling Hot” – Golden Orb Records
“Showtime” – Golden Orb Records
“On The Dancefloor” – Liquid Brilliants Records
