Berlin based DJ, producer and label-boss Daniel Haaksman hardly needs a big introduction. In 2004, he put Brazilian baile funk on the map with his seminal “Rio Baile Funk Favela Booty Beats” compilation.
Today he runs Man Recordings, Europe’s leading tropical bass label, which has put out more than one hundred releases cultivating trans-continental music and sound dialogues between Europe, South America and Africa.
As an artist, Daniel has released three critically acclaimed albums and has officially remixed countless artists from Ray Baretto to Gotan Project. Alongside the official remixes, Daniel continuously issues DJ friendly edits of both vintage and current tracks from artists such as Gal Costa, Cesaria Évora or Lord Nelson, many of which have become staples in the crates of Gilles Peterson, Mr. Scruff and Tash LC.
