The Irish-born DJ, producer and label owner Mano Le Tough is one of the most celebrated names in underground house and techno. He honed his skills and explored new sounds during his early years living in Berlin and throwing his own party, Passion Beat. He first began releasing 12-inches for Prins Thomas’ Internasjonal, Tensnake’s Mirau, and Ben Watt’s Buzzin’ Fly. His initial records presented quality bits of melody-driven and discoflecked house. He also caught the ear of Permanent Vacation, who issued his albums in 2013 and 2015. Amidst all of this activity, Mano has also been busy cultivating a label of his own, Maeve.
Opening set comes courtesy of Iman Hanzo from Germany who jets in to play his unmistakable style of melodic techno and afro house for his Danish debut following huge Beatport support on his recent releases on Wired, Tonspiel and Pink Revolver. Nandu plays the closing set fresh from the signings to Innervisions and Exit Strategy.
