Manu Kenton was born in march 1974 in the North of France, no surprise he got influenced so quickly by hard techno with Belgium, Holland, UK and Germany so closed. His 1st contact with electronic music started with his own weekly show on radio Galaxy in 1993, where he used to play for 5 years, getting favourite amond thousands of listeners. This can be probably looked at as the starting point of his carrier and passion for music as he instantly got noticed as an excellent and talented deejay.
In 2002 he got offered a residency in one of the greatest techno club of Belgium: LAGOA.
Smashing the dance floor every single Saturday with passion and determination, it then didn’t take him very long to draw attention and be asked for playing through the entire country. His reputation rising noticeably he quickly got invited in the major well-known clubs of Belgium such as Cherry Moon, La Bush, H2O, Silo and many others; fast-forwarded by bookings for the most famous techno festivals : Tomorrowland, Decibel, Q Base, BassLeader, Syndicate, Qontinent ,Defqon 1 and Ground Zero.
In 2005, still focused on his proper hard techno style with high quality productions like “Petrol”, “Adrenaline”or “Hypnotic”, Manu Kenton got to the top and became the founder of Frenchtek, his style standing out of the rest in a genre that brought pounding and banging sensations, he influenced other DJs with his tek which more than ever blows your eardrums for your highest pleasure. Which offered him to sign with the greatest hard techno labels like Killaz, Nerven, Djaxx up Beats, Cannibal society, Kevlar, Lupp, Ghoststyle, Genetic and Six Feet Unders… Till creating his own successfull one in 2010: Kentek Recordings, most of the time selected and tagged 1st in the Beatport charts.
Nowadays among the best DJs of the techno scene, he’s been playing with the greatest like DJ Rush, Umek, Technasia, Pet Duo, Torsten Kanzler, Miss DJaxx and his hard work and exceptionnal skills pushed him to European live tours in Belgium, Holland, Germany, Spain, Bulgaria, Italy, Uk and Scotland
Manu Kenton is now a master in the art of mixing and producing, resident in the major Liberty White parties where he gets his own events called “THE MANU KENTON REUNION”; he gives intense sensations to his listeners and clubbers with a setting of top sounds; his surprisingly easiness to handle techniques and to spin turntables makes him tear up the best hardtechno scenes of this generation.
