In 2014 eminent electro DJ Mano Meter, mechanical grooves drummer Nook and pianist Dave joined forces to create MANOOK. With a bit of cheek and some playful elements of tech house and electro swing they've set out to give the party scene what it's been waiting for. A bold statement - but not unfounded.
Mano is a DJ and musician in his own right, who plays piano, trumpet and guitar. His last solo album "Swinger" infiltrated various party scenes and quickly sealed his popularity abroad. Before he knew it, he was playing in Canada and the USA.
Nook has provided the beat for a variety of different bands over the years. From a drummer's perspective he's become quite the electro expert. Today Nook also drums live for dark electro institution PROJECT PITCHFORK and in the past has lent his support to German-American industrial legends DIE KRUPPS.
Dave is a young and very talented jazz piano player, grown up in a family of musicians, who won a lot of prices in his youth. His varied way of playing and his ability to improvise fit perfectly into the sound of MANOOK.
