London based record label and events company Makin’ Moves now into it’s 7th year celebrate their 100th label release with a exclusive free invite party inside LP on Saturday 6th April.
The Makin’ Moves team have worked with some of dance music’s most underground artists in the last 6 years including Chicago’s Peven Everett, Glenn Underground, to NYC’s DJ Spinna and Timmy Regisford to UK soul legends Lifford Shillingford and Omar to name but a few.
For their 100th release they have man of the moment Manoo from Lyon in France on remix duties.

As a dj, Manoo is undoubtedly one of the greatest talents and a rising stars of the French House community. Manoo built himself a strong reputation as a Dj in the late 90’s as resident of the Ambassade Club in Lyon in France. From early on the locals loved Manoo’s sets and it wast long before people from far and wide were coming to hear him. He now travels the world playing but still makes time to keep his residency at Ambassade club.
In 2001, Manoo took his first steps into production and started the Rodamaal project with his friends Alex and Rocco. Their first release “Love Island on Jazz-up Records was picked up by a lot of top djs. This furthered their reputation and led Ben Watt (Everything but the Girl) to sign them to his label Buzzin’ Fly Records.
In 2004-2005 more records followed with collaborations with Francois A and has since go not release his music on German label Innervisions and Ron Trent’s Future Vision imprint. Aswell as remixes on Quantize Recordings, MoBlack, Tribe, King Street and Kemet Soul.

We welcome two new faces to the label for our latest release, singer Dawn Souluvn Williams and DJ Wali B from New Jersey.

Discovered on Facebook by Moises Modestro, she recorded and co-wrote “Release” aka “Funky Beep” with Moises and Duane Hardin. From there she wrote and recorded “Live, Love, Laugh” in 2009 produced by Bruce Jeffers of Phunk Farmers Music. “Live, Love, Laugh” opened doors for Dawn around the world and she wrote and recorded her first Charted and #1 Hit title “New Me” produced by Jonny Montana.
This is Wali Bs first move into producing and with Tiger Wilson on synths it works the floor so well. Were pretty sure this is not going to be the last production that we will be hearing from Wali!
This very infectious piece of soulful house has been a big hit on the Makin Moves show for the last few months and in the cd wallets of the likes of Louie Vega, Jihad Muhammad, Danny Krivit, Joe Claussell.
