Being born in Frankfurt is not such a bad omen if you want to make electronic music. 26 years later and after a few Motown Records and hip hop influences and a 6-month traineeship at Cocoon it is safe to say that the advantage of the birth city has paid off for Emanuel Satie! Fascinated by artists like Luciano, Sven Väth and Ricardo Villalobos, Emanuel initially starts as a DJ. He moves between house and techno – always ahead, always deep and with groove and soul. The focus of his actions is crystal clear: the happenings on the dance floor.
But at some point this is not enough. The desire to produce his own music brings about two consequences: Lots of his own productions and sets, which consist more and more of these. Since 2011 Emanuel performed all of his gigs as live acts using only his own tracks. His style is housey, danceable, groovy, deep and soulful, sometimes even with an atmospheric touch and R&B and Soul influences. The fact is and what is relevant is that the guy is convincing in clubs, at Beatport and in the record store. Releases on renowned labels like Cécille Records, Suara, Noir Music, Souvenir and bouq. speak just as clearly as the support which these titles are getting from DJ colleagues – from renowned ones, mind you: DJ T., Butch, Noir, Tiefschwarz, Huxley and Carlo Lio amongst many others are not only playing but also charting Emanuel’s music. Quality prevails even in times when the technical barriers have fallen to the extent that almost anybody can produce. And so it goes without saying that national and international bookings are on the rise – a great way to start 2013.
