ABOUT: With over 13 years in Bangkok Thailand, Emanuel Skinner has become a household name and a house music icon locally and abroad. Originally from San Francisco and now a Phuket local sharing his vision and sound all across South East Asia . With over 20 years experience filling the best and biggest venues from Jakarta, Singapore, China, India, to South Korea, Bangladesh to Malaysia, the Maldives, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and all over Thailand (Chang Mai, Koh Tao, Koh Samui, Phuket, Pattaya, Koh Panghan etc...) plus his residencies at San Francisco’s best rave’s and nightclubs in in the early 90’s. Emanuel Skinner began his obsession with music from the days of vinyl. Collecting and playing funk, disco, old school hip hop, and dub reggae vinyl way back in 1987. With what started as just a hobby playing at friend’s birthdays, school dances and block parties on weekends grew into a full time profession. 10 years later in college he moved in with local legendary deep house master Miguel Migs before he got signed to Naked Music, Transport, Zebra, NRK records etc... in the early days of electronic music. The first time he heard house music he instantly knew he had to be a part of it! He got his first residency at a small venue named ‘Skunk lounge’ with Old School Graffitti artist Razor and ‘Groove lounge’ with long time college friend Miguel Migs warming up for local DJs, organizing parties in random locations around the Bay Area and throwing his own parties. Some DJs he was very fortunate to spin with incl. Miguel Migs, Rick Preston, Jon Howard, Chris Lum, David Harness, DJ Rasoul, Dubtribe and other greats at the time. His penchant for rhythmic complexity, organic machine made beats and stripped down vocals proves Emanuel has the experience and is a natural behind the decks, working the dance floor week after week, year after year. His strong desire to share great new music with the world drives him to be one step ahead of the hottest trends in underground dance music, which ensures that his sets are always full of the latest club tracks plus some classics thrown in for good measure. Over the years he has also collaborated with some very talented performers, singers, dancers, sax players and percussionists on stage. Thailand’s most recognized and talented percussionist Num (T-Bone) and Emanuel have been playing together for over 9 yrs. His weekly residency 'Models night' is Bangkok’s first & longest running most successful Wednesday night in the city. It was the most talked about night in and around Asia and abroad not just for the jet setting models but for providing Bangkok with quality dance music unheard anywhere else at the time. He has graced the decks with the worlds best DJ/Artists from around the world, DJ Roog, Kid Massive, Robert Owens, Rasmus Faber, Felix the Housecat, Dennis Ferrer, Martin Solvieg, DJ Gregory, Johnny Fiasco, Copyright, Knee Deep, Ian Carey, Oliver Lang, Born 2 Funk, Felix the Housecat, Nicky Siano, Layo and Bushwacka, Joey Negro, Oliver Lang, Laurent Garnier, Armin Van Buuren, AVIICI, Laidback Luke, Kevin Hedges of Blaze, Raul Rincon, Jesse Garcia, Sandy rivera, Bodyrox, Derrick Carter, DJ Pierre, Miguel Migs, Tocodisco and many more.
