Mano baby, this is your finest moment yet…. I was sure at first you’d gone and sampled Arthur Russell and I couldn’t believe you had such a fine voice. I love you, never change. (Prins Thomas)

Mano baby, this is your finest moment yet…. I was sure at first you’d gone and sampled Arthur Russell and I couldn’t believe you had such a fine voice. I love you, never change. (Prins Thomas) Originally from Ireland, producer and DJ Mano Le Tough has in recent years chosen Berlin as his adopted home. His modest discography displays a well developed sound which melts house, disco, techno, bass music etc into something new but cohesive. He has released on labels such as Dirt Crew Recordings, Mirau, Permanent Vacation and most recently on Ben Watt’s Buzzin’ Fly with his ‘Stories’ EP. His work has been remixed by the likes of Tensnake, Azari & III, Chateau Flight and Jacob Korn. Mano, which is the name that was given to him in school, played in a band in his earlier days, his name ‘Le Tough’ is derived from the band name Hang Tough. Beside being a producer he organizes his own monthly party “Passion Beat” at Kleine Reise/Loftus Hall in Berlin. Next year an album is planned to be released on Buzzin’ Fly. Mano’s tracks are characterized by a sense of melody and harmony. He uses clear sounds like Glockenspiel and playful synths. Boundaries get blurred in his music. Mano always tries to avoid clichés. By using his own voice for the first time in this EP, he reinvents himself as artist and with great success. ‘In my arms’ is a dreamy masterpiece which includes his vocals, while the cosmic track ‘Dropping Bombs’ hypnotizes with a pushing synth and 808 rhythms. ‘Those Lights Are Lives’ builds a wall of lively synths that is perked up by an airy ascending bassline.

Radio - BayrischerRundfunk/BR - Philipp Laier

He's definitely got some sense for cheesy melodies. But for some reason he always goes straight to my heart. Very, very lovely record and a very, very great artist which I'm sure is a very, very lovely guy too. Must be. Bad people don't make this kind of music!


Always loving Mano's music, Those Lights are Lives is amazing!
