Manu Nexo is the artistic name of Emanuel Domingos, born in ‘79, in the heart of central Portugal. From an early age, music is an important part of his universe. His musical adventure begins at the age of 10, the age at which he entered the conservatory of Filarmonica União Sertaginense. Following his dream of being a musician, a few years later he became a full member of the orchestra playing Sax Tenor.
Driven by curiosity and desire to learn, he became interested in electronic music with enthusiasm, a type of music that at the time was showing the first signs of expansion in Portugal. At 17 he had his first real contact with the public as a Dj, an opportunity given by the Twiins Club, the house where he worked since day 0.
Soon his love for hard kicks and strong rhythms, and influenced by the sounds of artists like Joey Beltram, T-1000, Humanoid, Carl Cox, makes him adopt Techno as his main mixing line, later expanding his musical culture with experiences in others emerging genres such as Full-On Trance and Psychedelic Trance.
Soon he decides to leave his home country in search of adventure and a better life. He explores and presents shows in several countries like the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Turkey and Luxembourg, before settling in his current country of residence, France.
The need for stabilization, the formation of a family, leads him to a long phase of stagnation, even considering giving up music. In recent years, he finally decided to relaunch his artistic career, returning to his first and most beloved style: Techno. Offering the audiences electrifying sets in various subgenres such as Detroit Techno, Dark Techno and Hard Techno.
His rebirth in the musical universe of Central Europe is marked by the opening of doors not only in Luxembourg, where he collected frequent performances in the biggest club in the country, Factory12, but also in neighboring countries such as France, Belgium and Germany.
Manu Nexo is also building a set repertoire on online radios such as Fnoob, ClubDJ Portugal, Techno Paradize, FullAudio, RindRadio, Cuebase FM, InProgressRadio, as well as an experience as a radio manager at WamFm / Brazil. To continue his rise in the Techno scene, he finally decides to focus on production having already released some originals and remixes on Labels such as Let’s Techno Records, Deck Fat Techno and Construct Techno.
Manu Nexo’s connection to music is not limited to Djing. He is also Communication and Intel Director of Construct Media Group, a conglomerate that includes several labels of various musical styles, as well as entities dedicated to music education, artist management, event planning, event consulting, etc. Manu Nexo also directs the Label Construct Techno of the same group.
