Previously known as Manuel Costela. Grew up with a musical culture of “Soul and Funk” his music is mostly Deep House with touches of soul and disco that define his particular style. His performances are defined with big enthusiasm to make people dance and create that fun party atmosphere. In 2005, he began working as a producer and started the Bucketround label, which currently goes by the tenth reference and only produces in vinyl format, Bucketround was born from the initial idea of merging funk with deep house music, publishing works of artists who are able to risk a bit in music production. The other reason of Bucketround is to create a community of famous artists, collaborating with producers that are emerging right now. He also started with a vinyl project, releasing “La Puerta de Atrás” that was premiered in Deep Explorer Music. Costela’s last project is a new digital label, called 2phonic Recordings, that was created to discover new talented artists, based on electronic music, experimenting with different pre-defined styles. Some of his most representative works are: “When Kraken Show Up” on the EP “Tentacles Of The Deep” released on his Vinyl label (Bucketround) “Interstellar Love” released at Golden Soul Records owned by James Rod. In this track Costela shows its entire disco and funk influence, using his acoustic bass and own voice. A remix made to the fathers of Italo Disco Daniele Baldelli and Dj Rocca "Thylacine", they chose that remix as the first track of the EP. Released by Melodica Records.
