Even though Manny Freytes is from the United States (New York City to be exact!) He will not be mistaken for a so called "EDM" DJ. With his ponding, dark, groovy Techno that has a flare for the dramatic. Manny started his DJ career in 1991 playing hip hop.  As a resident DJ at historic Fever nightclub in the Bronx, he worked alongside of some of hip hop’s most respected DJs, such as Kid Capri, Doo Wop, S&S, and Love Bug Starski. Manny introduced house music into his sets whenever he felt he could ‘slip it’ in. Tracks like Aly Us – Follow Me, LNR – Work It To The Bone and Candi Staton – You Got the Love, were staples in his record bag. After The Fever closed, Manny discovered a club called Vinyl and a DJ that would change his relationship to house music forever, Danny Tenaglia. There was an instant connection to the sound, vibe, and love that he saw and felt.  Manny had found a new home, and every Friday night you would find him front and center. He developed his skills as a house music DJ and became a regular opener and fill-in for DT at his legendary and award-winning “Be Yourself” parties. After the closing of Vinyl/Arc, Danny Tenaglia continued to call upon Manny to this day to open nights for him, including the notable: Godskitchen's “Boo Yourself” Halloween party @ Club Exit, Made Event's 2005 X-mas and Halloween party's @ Sprit, Vinyl's / BE Yourself Reunion @Pacha-NYC, New Years Eve and the closing party at New York City's legendary Club Limelight.  In 2008, Freytes was asked to spin alongside DT, Wally Lopez and Victor Calderone at Space Ibiza. While in Ibiza, people took notice and Manny was asked to spin a live set on Ibiza Sonica, Ibiza's #1 Dance Radio Station.  In addition to these achievements, Manny has shared the booth with the likes of Steve Lawler, John Digweed, Danny Howells, Behrouz, Wally Lopez, DJ Vibe, Chus and Ceballos, Cevin Fisher, DJ Demi, Luca Ricci, Hector Romero, Ivano Bellini, and a host of other global DJs. Manny has spun in numerous clubs, and loft parties in and around New York City and beyond, Including a 4 day, 6 gig tour to Eastern Europe which included a live 2 hour set on Hungary's #1 dance radio station. In the 2006 annual issue of DJ Magazine’s 100 Top DJs, Danny Tenaglia was asked who will break through in the coming year.  Along with DJs Demi (Deeper Substance, SOS) and Andy B (Ibiza) Danny mentions Manny Freytes. Manny's studio claim-to-fame is his hard hitting exclusive remixes and edits that some of the top jocks have been hammering over the years. Now spending much of his creativity and talents on his own productions and official remixes expect to hear more great things from Manny Freytes in the near future.
