Dj Tennis (Life and Death | !K7, IT) | Brokesteady / Mandagsklubben
DJ Tennis gets the call on the eve of labour day extending our weekend to a Tuesday as the Life and Death boss join the immoveable Brokesteady crew for a Mandagsklubben jaunt. DJ Tennis’ highly acclaimed DJ Kicks contribution from 2017 might have been the accolade that swung the masses to his atmospheric club sound, but he and his label have hardly been a blip on the music radar since establishing in 2010. Launching the careers of acts like Tale of Us and Mind Against as well as establishing his own talents as a producer, DJ Tennis and Life and Death have made a severe contribution to the Techno genres in recent years. His sets pours the mood and atmosphere of the label and his productions onto the dance floor and they’ve been the purview of the underground for some time, a proven consistency on festival stages and clubs alike that makes its way to Jæger.

Founder and A&R of Life and Death, Manfredi Romano grew up tour-managing punk bands and organising left-field music events in Italy around the turn of the Millennium. Having completed his studies in computer science at the University of Pisa, Manfredi went on to form DAZE, Italy’s first booking agency solely devoted to electronic music.Drawing on two decades of experience behind the scenes, Romano shifted focus in 2010, establishing himself as a DJ in his own right. As a performer, Tennis valiantly showcases an astute ability to create intimacy in even the vastest of gatherings. As a respected producer, Romano consistently channels his past relationships with post-rock luminaries such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Tortoise and Fugazi into intricately-synthesised electronic constellations. Fine chef and restaurant owner, Tennis splits his time between Miami and Barcelona, where he enjoys riding motorbikes, collecting vintage action-figures and building upon his vinyl record collection - which now numbers over eleven thousand strong.
