Does D-Manic win a place on Soundwave World tour – you decide.
Written by admin on July 12, 2018
After hitting the turntables aged 11. D-Manic has played all kinds of music. D-Manic first touched vinyl on a pair of Garrard SP25 MKIV’s which were encased inside a Citronic Hawaii DJ case back in 1984 after a neighbour and friend handed them down. This event was also paramount in D-Manic’s love of Electro, Funk, Raregroove and Hip-hop, The genres that would take him down the House, Hardcore, Jungle and DnB road later in life. After playing house parties and small private “Raves” D-Manic finally got a break whilst residing in Portugal and was given his first Club set at a popular and underground club called Silver Screen in 1997. This was where the Trance took hold. D-Manic perfected his style of play on 1210’s, selecting the best in Dream House and early Balearic trance tracks as well as the odd house banger. D-Manic took a break from the club scene in 1999 to raise a family, but coninued to ply his trade as a pub/venue DJ holding down three resident slots in two of Lewisham’s more popular pub’s and as one of Hollywood Bowls most successful DJ’s in the UK. After a marriage breakdown and becoming a single parent, things were looking pretty bleak…., but a gift from his brother Carl soon changed that!!! Armed with a pair of loaned CDJ 1000’s D-Manic found his love again and decided to throw himself back into the mix (pun intended) Since bursting back onto the scene last year D-Manic has earned a residency at Art and supported DJ’s and artists such as Nicholson, Greg Downey, Jon Pleased Wimmen, Phutek, Phil Reynolds, Luck & Neat, So solid Crew, and Lisa Mafia. He will soon be supporting John Askew and many more! With a track due for release on Art recordings alongside his brother and inspiration “Nicholson” things are looking good for this dark horse in the wings.
