If it's about contemporary House music, there is no way of avoiding the northern DJs & producers. First and foremost with Roberto Manuel Rodriguez Rantanen, or 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 Nu Disco styles.
It is his pertinent mix of soulful, funky & functional dance floor and his effective productions who convinced the tastemakers worldwide and prepared his ground for releases on labels like Compost, 2020Vision, Freerange or Delusions of Grandeur and remixes for acts like Yoko Ono, Tigerstripes, Jay Shepheard, The Timewriter, Crazy P or Vanessa Daou.
