- Emmanuel K


B orn and raised in Paris, Emmanuel's first contact with music came with the learning of piano and drums, starting age 8 . His musical taste has been established through years of listening all kind of sounds, based on Hip-hop, Jazz, Rock and House influences. By 15, his growing interest for club music and djing led him to buy his first turntables and start messing around with vinyls with friends and on occasional private parties in Paris.Collecting more and more tunes and defining his taste in electronic music, the need to develop his own ideas into productions came naturally to him, trying to re-use the fundaments of rythm and melodics he learned with the piano and the drums.After playing a few gigs in Paris at Pin-up, Maxim's, Rouge or Pigallion (ex Folie's Pigalle), he decided to move during summer 2012 to Berlin.In the middle of this creative jungle, he quickly found his place as a resident dj for the newly created Stay Free Kollektiv -a reunion of dj's, graphic artists and atypical parties lovers- allowing him to play gigs at legendary clubs like Tresor, Sisyphos or KaterHolzig...Sharing the decks with artists like Red Robin, David Keno, Jake T he Rapper, or Ordinary Subject definitely brought him the needed experience to go ahead with a promising musical travel.2013 should be the real start for him, as a load of his productions are on the way, and already signed.His sound, driven by groovy basslines and complex rythmical structure, smoothly evolves between minimal, tech and deep house, never forgetting to pay tribute to his influences .
