Carl Finlow & Manali
1 August 2019
Born in Liverpool England, from an early age Carl was listening to electronic music by the likes of Japanese master Isao Tomita and since 1986 he has been making his own music with computers. He started to put music onto records in the early 1990s and soon became involved with prestigious labels around the world like Warp, Soma, Klang, SCSI-AV, Novamute, Satamile, Electrix and was also a founder and chief producer for the UK's 2020 Vision label. With a career crossing three decades Finlow has produced an enormous catalog of music and a quick look at his discography will reveal hundreds of releases and remixes for acclaimed artists such as Andrew Weatherall, Luke Slater, John Tejada, Thomas Heckmann and Eric Estornel. Since moving to France in 2002 he has continued to produce a stream of electro EP's and albums and has played live as far and wide as Tokyo, Moscow, New York and LA. Not content to rest within one genre, Carl has also made many pieces of music for tv and radio around the globe and he continues to push his skills as a composer and a producer.
Manali’s love for spacey, hypnotic and obscure sounds has seen her bring unique vibe to the dancefloors that drew attention, fascinating crowds and promoters across her home country in India and Netherlands, her summer base. She has developed a sophisticated view in music, showcasing minimalistic approach in house and techno often with underlying hints of acid, breaks, electro and vintage electronic music. With her genuine appearance and infectious energy behind the decks, she effortlessly builds up any night. For each gig she prepares passionately, endlessly digging crates and pushing unknown gems while retaining her signature vibe. Manali is steadily growing in the minimal scene as she continues to expand her horizons not just across Europe and South Asia, but also aims to share her musical vibe globally. Driven by passion, determination and hard work, she is constantly honing her mixing skills and continues to follows her own instincts over trends. For her, a DJ set is about creating a sonic journey of storytelling rather than banging out one big tune after another.
