Emanuel Satie has apparently always been in love with dance music. Studying music in his home city of Frankfurt, and moving to Berlin to undertake an internship at Cocoon Record label, he is a self-taught disc jockey/bedroom producer whose talent didn't keep him grounded for very long. His debut EP 'Fervent' was an introduction into the world of deep house and techno and opened up many doors to the career he holds today.
Winning the title of Best Producer under the 2016 DJ Awards, and with a string of releases on labels Get Physical and Moon Harbour, his most recent EP 'Addis Ababa' is a dancefloor-ready project that infuses world rhythms and instrumentation with deep house characteristics. Now, he’s returning to Australia this November and December for six shows.
In 2015 he had been steadily picking up steam with tracks on DTFD, Get Physical and Audiojack’s Gruuv, including a feature in Resident Advisor’s top charted tracks of 2015. He also delivered a remix on The 2 Bears ‘The Night Is Young’ remix LP with a deeper houser version of ‘Get Out’ and a Main Room DJ set alongside Groove Armada at Fabric, London.
In 2016 his rework of Late Nite Tuff Guy’s remix of DJ Le Roi & Roland Clark’s ‘I Get Deep’ hit number 1 in the Beatport overall chart and held strong in the top 5 for six weeks. His latest original production also had Beatport chart success, ‘Come As You Are’, his debut single on Nic Fancuilli’s Saved Records, at the time of writing, was currently number 4 in the Beatport tech house chart.
Emanuel’s list of remixes is also growing, with remixes for DJ Sneak & Riva Star on Snatch Records, Hife & Bazaar on Noir, Who Made Who on Get Physical & Shiba San on Suara dropping in the first half of 2016.
Support from Pete Tong on many Satie tracks on his BBC R1 show in the last 18 months lead him to proclaim Emanuel’s track ‘Private Show’ ‘probably my favourite bassline of 2015'. Alongside this, he was picked by Mixmag to feature in their Hot 6 ones to watch.
