Starting really young (in 2001) he had driven all around the best clubs in Milan, with his inseparable vinyl bag. From his hometown, his flair and charisma to bewitch the dancefloor bled into the whole Italy. All this expertise has culminated with the residence behind the desk of “Innovative” at Lime Light and “Detroit Milano”, some years later.

So slightly later – in 2011 – Mannella started a new raw Techno project with two friends: M-A-E. Quickly loved and noted, it led to manifold collaborations with EDEC Music Outlet. Moving to Berlin in 2014, he has already grab the eye playing in the historic Tresor’s cage and in many other big clubs in town such About Blank, Arena Club, Suicide Circus or Griessmuehle where he is hosting -with some raising berliners talents- a party named “Decipher Language”. Mannella is nowadays one of the most esteemed talent in underground music scene.
His latest vision of music is linked with knobs, patch and a friendly relationship with those instruments that allow him to process his personal cosmic sound.
