As DJ Tennis, Manfredi Romano produces and spins moody, atmospheric tracks which range from indie-friendly house to lush, finely detailed techno.
Romano initially started making punk and indie rock during the late '80s, as well as hosting a college radio show. Eventually he started organizing electronic and experimental music events, co-founding a booking agency called DAZE. He shifted his focus from promoting events to DJ'ing and producing in 2010, and co-founded the Life and Death
label along with Greg Oreck. Romano's first release for the label was 2012's "Make It Good" single. Later that year, Kompakt
released "The Outcast," Romano's collaboration with Pillowtalk
. Double EP Local arrived on Life and Death
in 2014. This was followed by Divisions Chirality in 2016, as well as collaborative singles with Martin Buttrich
. In 2017, DJ Tennis mixed the first ever double-CD edition of the long-running DJ-Kicks series; the first disc focused on IDM and abstract techno, while the second was more dancefloor-friendly, though still atmospheric. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
