Born and raised in the city of Essen, Germany (synonymous with urban
boredom) Manuel became fascinated by electronic music and synth sound
creation at a very young age. This rapidly developed into a passion for
Djing that in turn fuelled his desire to write and produce tracks for
his sets. Influenced by artists such as Ian Pooley, Sébastien Léger and
Swag he rapidly honed his production skills and his began creating a
versatile and unique sound with a careful balance of tech, deep &
US house sounds.
As a result Manuel released his debut EP Caissa/Italo Fake at the tender age of 16 on London based label MadaMusic followed by projects with Sebastien Léger’s label Bits Music, Brickhouse Rec. from Germany and French Dynamic Recordings as well as his big release Your Love on Sweden’s Joia label under his Arcade Mode guise.
