Emanuel Skinner

Emanuel became deeply inspired by the thriving underground scene of San Francisco and Chicago and at just 17, took to the decks to cultivate the uniquely diverse sound he is known for today.


While he started out playing at underground parties throughout Northern California, it was not long before he caught the eyes and ears of clubs and promoters alike and was soon booked at many of the top clubs throughout San Francisco, including “1015”, “The End up”, “Liquid”, “Sunset parties”, “Groove Lounge” with long time friend Miguel Migs.

After travelling to Thailand in 2000, he made the choice to move to the vibrating city of Bangkok and has now become a key figure in the development of the Bangkok club scene and helped make it the global phenomenon it is quickly becoming. Voted best Bangkok Deejay 2002, Emanuel’s name has become synonymous with Bangkok’s club scene, both inside and outside of Thailand.

With a musical style that encompasses funky house, electro, tribal, tech and acid house, Emanuel’s love of music is vast and diverse.


He has been to places as diverse as Singapore, Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, India and all over Thailand. Emanuel is regularly called upon to play among the top DJs in the world during their performance in Thailand: ie. DJ Roog, 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, Raul Rincon and so on… 

He has a strong emphasis on the technical aspects of deejaying, as well as his flawless programming of his sets, make him stand out from the rest. “For me… sharing the music i love and sending the crowds into frenzy is the ultimate high!” responds Emanuel “It was also the unification of all people regardless of race, sexual preference & religious background’s which attracted me to House music back in 1991.”
