Life and Death / IT
Sónar by Night - SonarPub by Thunder Bitch
Manfredi Romano has one goal in life - to make people dance. It’s a challenge that is hard to resist at one of his sets, packed full of undiscovered and rare disco, house, techno, funk and electro gems. This year the Italian DJ and producer will be throwing down the gauntlet at SonarPub on Saturday night, a peak time set for an artist who can move a crowd whatever the time of day or night.
What started out a fun side gig for the artist known as Dj Tennis (the name is a wink to his childhood career as a tennis champ), has now become a full time job. In the best possible sense. Alongside his frequent bookings around the world as a DJ, Manfredi is also an in demand producer and remixer, talents he puts to good use through his influential Life And Death label. Since starting the label in Berlin (later moving to Miami), L&D has released and supported artists from across the spectrum of electronic music including Mind Against, Tale of Us, Recondite and Lucy. With a healthy dose of DIY and punk rock energy (inherited from his days as a gig promoter), Tennis has built his label into one of the best players in the game.
