If it is about contemporary house music, there is no way of avoiding the northern DJ’s & producers. First and foremost with Roberto Rodriguez aka Manolo, who has shaped his personal funk infected old-school vibe over the last years and helped the house revive without forgetting from where it came from.
His Future Beat Investigators strictly followed the Detroit heritage and his Acid Kings membership gave us lust for the Roland TB 303 again. The Bermuda project came back to Cosmic again and had more than an impact on the nudisco styles.
It is his pertinent mix of soulful, funky & functional dancefloor and his his effective productions who convinced the tastemakers worldwide and prepared his ground for remix jobs on Bellringer ́s Sunrising/ Connaisseur, Superstition ́s classic Schöneberg from Marmion or Yoko Ono ́s Give me Something. Not to forget his latest release "Lose Myself" as Manolo on Delusions of Grandeur.
