MANO LE TOUGH
Now based in Berlin, Irish expat Mano Le Tough has been absolutely killing it since his 2009 debut with his releases on Buzzin Fly, Internasjonal and, most recently, the consistently awesome Permanent Vacation. His warm, melodic approach to house music is instantly loveable and translates into good times on any dance floor, and his music has made its way into the bags of artists as diverse as Jimpster, Soul Clap, Hernan Cattaneo, Trickski and Catz 'N Dogz. His debut LP "Changing Days" is due out in the last week of February, just days before this party, so there's even more reason to celebrate!
Mano isn't just a whiz in the studio though - he's gained a huge amount of respect as a DJ over his short career, picking up regular gigs at famed German nightspots Panorama Bar and Robert Johnson. He runs a monthly night at Loftus Hall in Berlin called "Passion Beat" which has seen acts like Nicolas Jaar, John Talabot and The Mole all jump behind the decks as guest headliners. Debuting at number 53 in RA's Top 100 DJs poll this year, he was one of the year's highest new entries and obviously made a stellar impression on every dancer he played to at home and abroad in 2012.
And now he's heading to Australia for the very first time and we'll have the absolute pleasure of hosting him! We've plucked out a bunch of Sydney's finest for the occasion.
