After ten years of classical percussion and following a PR job with a
music label, Emmanuel Santarromana finally got into the clubbing scene
as additional percussionnist for DJ Mandrax, Charles Schillings,
Laurent Garnier… in the most important European clubs such as the Mad
(Lausanne), Plastic People (London), the Queen and the Rex Club (Paris).
In 1998, he started DJing, and hasn’t stop spinning since, except for a stint managing his own restaurant Le Royal Mondétour, a stylish Parisian meeting place for the world of fashion and music. Emmanuel went on to design the soundtrack for fashion shows by Barbara Bui, Guy Laroche and Fred Sathal, who asked him to mix the first “Barbara Bui Café” compilation released by Pschent in April 2001. His selection for two “Plaza Club” compilations (named after his famous club nights at Les Bains) confirmed his reputation as an essential DJ on the European clubbing scene.
