Few individuals can claim to have done so much for musical exchange across the globe as Berlin based DJ, producer, journalist and label boss Daniel Haaksman.
With the release of his 2004 compilation "Rio Baile Funk Favela Booty Beats" (Essay Rec) he introduced the sound of Rio ́s favelas for the first time to a global audience, parallely creating the genre term „Baile Funk“ (in Brasil, the music is called „Funk Carioca“).
From 2005 Daniel gave the sound of Rio De Janeiro its own platform and the Berlin treatment and started Man Recordings, today considered one of the leading international labels in tropical bass music. Man Recordings has released countless records by artists such as such as Diplo, Schlachthofbronx, Crookers, Ku Bo or Daniel Haaksman himself amongst others, as well as the creme of Brazilian artists such as João Brasil, Deize Tigrona, Lovefoxxx, Marina Gasolina or Edu K.
Daniel ́s own musical output includes various single releases and compilations, two albums, plus dozens of official remixes for artists such as Gotan Project, Ray Baretto, Bonde Do Rolê, Schlachthofbronx, Waldemar Bastos amongst others. As a DJ, he has travelled the world and played countless clubs, festivals and events, including Hollywood wedding parties to gunman patrolled ghetto- jams. His party friendly mix of baile funk, afro house, footwork, kuduro and everything in between has excited audiences everywhere. Daniel knows no musical rules, except for one: A DJ has to rock the party.
