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.

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.
