Talent. Experience. Ambition. Passion.
Any one of these attributes alone may lead to success. But when all four converge in equal force, well, now you’re talking superstar status.
During his stint developing new talent as an executive at A&M Records, Manny discovered powerhouse diva CeCe Peniston. He later executive produced her first single, “Finally,” which went on to become one of the definitive club anthems of the early 90s. Always on the lookout for tomorrow’s stars -- “I love to find diamonds in the rough and help polish them up,” he says -- Manny continues to develop new artists and has founded his own management company.
He also lends his talent to more established artists, not the least of whom are Janet Jackson, Cher, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Sara Brightman. His chart-topping remixes of “Come On Get Up,” “When the Money’s Gone,” “What It Feels Like for a Girl,” and “Harem,” respectively, solidified his status early on as a hotshot remix specialist .
One of an elite crew of DJs who has headlined every major event on the gay party circuit -- twice, often more -- Manny in Europe as one of the most consistent octane-fueled DJs in the gay arena. From parties at 10,000-foot snow-covered peaks requiring helicopter transport to beach parties in Thailand, Stadiums of 30,000 people, and even SONY Picture’s Opening Night for the Cannes Film Festival…Manny has done it all.
