A true artist will always have something that makes them stand out from the crowd. In the case of Emmanuel its his wonderful ability to transfer his daily emotions and experiences, into the music that he creates. Srilankans and Maldivians roots, born in Pireo (Greece) in 1987, Emmanuel, despite his young age, it's already a well travelled guy. After a short stay in Greece he moved alongside his family towards the grey and foggy north of Italy, Milan with precision. Here he spent most of his recent past. During his long trips music has never been missing by his experiences background. From his early passion for the etno-folk melodies of the countries in which his Dna sinks his roots, he soon moved to new sounds, quickly founding great interests in the electronic phenomena.
Interests that were too often limited, interests that after a few weeks were already aiming to become something more, to become his own thing. That so, aged 16, Emmanuel approached the first softwares and started doin music. In so doing, in a short lap of time, he got in touch with several artists and started to establish his relationship with a few big names.
It's winter 2007 when, thanks to his last demo (A Step From You/Parade EP), he got in touch with the israelian dj and producer Shlomi Aber. An enlightening encounter for both them, an encounter which soon led Aber to sign Emmanuel for his own Imprint, Be As One. And judging by the results of Emmanuel's first release it's not hard to be understood why Aber didn't loose anytime in sign him and get him into the techno rumble.
His debut release "Parade EP" got some really serious support from some of the biggest names in Techno and House: Laurent Garnier, Adam Beyer, Josh Wink, Tiefschwarz, Danny Howells, Troy Pearce, Mauro Picotto, Hernan Cattaneo, Nic Fanciulli, Phil K, Pig & Dan they all showed their love. And with his second release "Indian Wallpaper", always on Be As One, Emmanuel strogly confirm his skill. With airplays feat by the likes of names like Sven Vath, Carl Cox, Sasha, John Digweed, Josh Wink, Dubfire and Adam Beyer to name a few, there's no doubt if Emmanuel's name will be one of the most talked about names of the very next future. Stay tuned.
