International DJ Artist & Music producer
The year Y2K he departed his hometown of San Francisco and boarded a plane headed for South East Asia for his first time DJing outside of the states. On his way he stopped in Bangkok, Thailand and fell in love with it's vibrant culture, warm weather, beach parties, exotic food, amazing people. A place he called it home for the last 13 years.
His first very job he landed back in January 2000 was a small hole in the wall bar at the time named Tapas room club on Silom soi 4, in the hart of the financial district. Tapas room was and is still the longest running venue dedicated to electronic music played by DJs 7 days a week for over 15 years.
Emanuel instantly became a local House and Techno music pioneer, leader and musical icon, which he embraces and does not shrug off because it took a lot of hard work to get there. His achievements include best bar 3 years, best dance club 3 years and voted best DJ 3 years in a row by BK Magazine until he quit for a bigger and better opportunity.
After 3 and a half very successful years at Tapas he left for a very attractive offer to work for a new venue not seen before in Thailand, the beginning of the Supperclub. He was the first foreign DJ to get a work permit and highest paid DJ in Thailand.
He started a weekly institution at Bed Supperclub 'Models night' Bangkok’s first & most successful Models night in the city. It was the most talked about night in and around Asia and abroad not just for the jet set crowd & international models but providing Bangkok with quality underground dance music unheard anywhere else at the time.
Over the years he has also collaborated with some very talented performers, singers, dancers, sax players and percussionists on stage. Thailand’s most recognized and talented percussionist Num (T-Bone) and Emanuel have been playing together for over 9 yrs traveling all over Asia to perform.
He has graced the decks with the worlds best DJ/Artists from around the world Kid Massive, Robert Owens, Rasmus Faber, Felix the Housecat, Dennis Ferrer, Martin Solvieg, DJ Gregory, Johnny Fiasco, Copyright, Knee Deep, Ian Carey, Oliver Lang, Born 2 Funk, Felix the Housecat, Nicky Siano, Layo and Bushwacka, Joey Negro, Oliver Lang, Laurent Garnier, Raul Rincon, Jesse Garcia, Sandy rivera, Bodyrox, Derrick Carter, DJ Pierre, Miguel Migs, Tocodisco, Matt Caseli, Doc Martin, DJ Sneak, Mr. Mike, Laidback Luke, AVIICI, Sander Van Doorn, DJ Roog, and many more.

To say the least he has been busy.
Back in 1996 he got his first residency at a venue in San Francisco called ‘Skunk lounge’ at the Maritime Hall and ‘Groove lounge’ with long time college friend Miguel Migs warming up for local DJs, organizing parties in random locations around the Bay Area and throwing his own parties. Some DJs he was very fortunate to spin with incl. Miguel Migs, Rick Preston, Jon Howard, Chris Lum, David Harness, Doc Martin, Lisa Shaw, DRC, DJ Rasoul, Dubtribe and other greats at the time.
His next big move he just relocated to the big lights of Las Vegas, Look out for Emanuel Skinner in the coming year 2014 with his new album and EPs!
