Manuel Tur

As a young twenty-something in Essen, Germany, Manuel Tur bucked the trend of hanging out behind the fahrradhalle, smoking Camels and drinking weiss beer, choosing instead to spend time honing his craft by immersing himself in the sounds of Ian Pooley, Sebastien Leger and Swag.
It wasn't long before his material started being released through labels such as Agave, SoSound and Sebastien Leger's own Bits Music. But that wasn't enough for Manuel so he decided to set up his own Smokestack Recordings which is how he hooked up with Freerange. His track 'Portamento' became a staple in Jimpster's DJ sets so he set about getting Manuel to record an EP for Freerange. This deep bomb and others like 'Acorado' and 'Deviate’ have made him hot property in the world of house music.
It's fair to say he’s on top of his game with recent big tracks for Drumpoet with Dplay and Ovum with Langenburg he was nominated for ‘Best Deep House Artist’ and ‘Best Deep House Track’ at the 2009 Beatport Annual Awards.
His remixes for Phonique, Nick Holder, Jazzanova and D’julz are cropping up all over the sets of those favoring the deeper, underground house sound that Manuel and co are excelling in. 2009 saw Freerange release his debut LP entitled 0201, to widespread critical aclaim - DJ Mag crowned it Album of the Month, IDJ called it a 'majestic debut' and gave it 10/10 and Germany's De:Bug magazine already have it down as a contender for album of the year! The album may come as surprise to those more accustomed to his wobbly dancefloor beats, but it’s a very nice surprise indeed. Broken beats cosy up to filtered French disco, lush deep house flirts with soulful US sounds – put it altogether and you have a beautifully constructed work of deeply atmospheric delights. Expect more great things to come from this bright young producer.
