Biographie English:

Manuel Winkler was first caught up in and carried away by the creative wave of Electronic Dance Music that circumnavigated the globe in the heady mid 90s. Born and raised a Berliner, he was fascinated by milestone Rave Events such as MAYDAY & Co, and he became inspired by a passionate interest for the world of Djing, Its technology and the many associated possibilities to get involved with the music, to make it, to present it, to evolve it and in so doing to contribute to the emotional well being of the ever increasing global audience for EDM.

Immediately he began to experiment at home with Cassette records and CD players, very quickly realizing that he was indeed in his element! Not only was his new found passion a source of pleasure and satisfaction, he also appeared to posses genuine talent. It didn’t take long before the Hobby DJ had amassed an enormous collection of Vinyl 12”s, with which he worked his way into more and more DJ gigs at partys and in smaller clubs. From what was originally a nice way to spend his free time, a real full time job was evolving.

A decade later, in 2007, together with his DJ partner Holger Jenning, he founded the “SUPERSTROBE” project. They set about recording and releasing countless singles and EPs to unabated acclaim, resulting in a flood of remix requests for talented and respected players like Mellefresh & Kaoki (labelmates of Deadmau5), Lazy Rich, Pierre Deutschmann, Miles Dyson, Electrixx, DJ Jordan & Marc Van Linden and many more. All this in combination with their work appearing on highly respected imprints such as EXX Records and Electrogravity, very quickly earned them a place on the international circuit, with gigs in Mexico, Spain, Brazil, Egypt, Ukraine, Slovenia, Switzerland, Poland, France and of course their home base, good old Germany!

After 5 successful years, Holger decided it was time for him to go his own way, and in 2012 he left the SUPERSTROBE project to pursue a solo career. Manuel found himself faced with
maybe the most important decision of his entire artist career. Lay the project to rest and start again from the very beginning on something new? Or see the situation, the changes in his circumstances, as a great chance to remodel and redefine his beloved SUPERSTROBE project? He retreated out of public view, away from his fans and his management, and went into soulsearching mode. Finally, and after some very long weeks for those in waiting, there were signs of life, and Manuel reemerged to announce his decision: All systems down and REBOOT!

Manuel stepped back into the game, to start with in his studio. Through experimentation, playing, creating, mutating and evolving sounds and ideas, and pushing himself beyond all previous creative boundries, after six months he presented the fruits of his labor, and with the album ‘REBOOT’ announced simply and dirtectly that he was indeed back on track, and good to go!

The boss of his new label PRAXXIZ, none other than the founder of the Berlin Love Parade, Dr Motte, was visibly overjoyed with the end result of several months patience and waiting on his part. The new SUPERSTROBE sound is stronger, more energetic and crystal clear to the ear. It takes on board essential elements and influences from all its contemporaries. From Techno, Minimal, Tech-House, Electro and Progressive and fuses them all together in a very NEW sound that stands for stepping forward and originality in its field. The missing link in the evolution of EDM.

SUPERSTROBE releases and tracks have been played and supported by such outstanding international EDM artists such as:

Richie Hawtin, Monika Kruse, Umek, Dr. Motte, Luciano, Ferry Corsten, Da Fresh , D.O.N.S., Phuture Traxx, Thomas Heckmann, Groovepatcher, The Chosen Two, Bukaddor and Fishbeck, Tim Thaler, WTM Paris, Acid Wasched, Andrea Belli, Freshguide DJ’s, Graham Gold and many many more!
