Mandalan is the music project of Los Angeles-based musician, songwriter and producer James Brennan. He produces a tropical house genre of dance/pop music with a dramatic sound including heavy drums and electronic elements.
His debut single HOW WE LIVE featuring vocals by EDM singer Cadence XYZ was released to critical acclaim in December 2019.
“Drawing from a colorful kaleidoscope of shimmery synths, Mandalan adds a mesmerizing percussive beat to craft a dreamy, almost exotic soundscape that evokes a sun-kissed faraway place. Then there’s Cadence XYZ's exquisite vocals that so beautifully complement the sultry vibe of the instrumentals.” ~Eclectic Music Lover
In addition to creating music and performing conga percussion, James has a passion for ocean swimming, cycling, running & fitness training!
