Manoj emerged in 1991 as one of the pioneering event producers in the NW electronic dance culture. Producing a multitude of successful gatherings in Portland, Eugene and Seattle, he initially became known for his unique style of events that were associated with inspirational experiences for the attendees.
In 1997, feeling that there was something missing in the sounds he was hearing from the dancefloor, Manoj trained himself to dj on turntables and soon after established himself as a well-respected dj.
Feeling the limitations of playing records, he excitedly embraced the new digital age of music and its respective technologies. With these new resources at his command, Manoj is now bridging musical worlds and expanding beyond any single limited definition of sound.
In 2009, reversing a common trend in dance music to reduce dj sets and overbook lineups, Manoj began playing extended sets that have ranged up to 7.5 hours which have him performing from the moment doors open to the very last track played in a night. The response from the attendees and dancers has been overwhelmingly positive and has inspired him to take this experience out further into the world.
