We've all been to an event where walking in seems like a portal to another world. The decor, the crowd, and most importantly the sounds create a dreamlike scenario that only expert curation and progressive underground music could achieve. In the current environment of popular dance, escaping the crowds for an inclusive yet exclusive environment in a heavenly contradiction that few have been able to achieve. Dj Tennis a.k.a. Manfredi Romano has built a team focused on creating that environment. The name Life and Death has made an imprint and built a unique culture around dance music for almost a decade, it seems that they're just getting started.
Tennis and the Life & Death crew are no stranger to the main stage, you've all heard their tracks and see the influence of the Italian-bred label. As a significant factor in breaking top talent like Mind Against and Tale of Us, the label continues to evolve as a driving force in underground sounds. Described as party instigators, the crew is dedicated to forward-thinking sounds made for a refined dance floor. Holding a high regard for the crowd, Dj Tennis and team focus on friends and good times rather than all-out rave. Known as a gathering place for dance music elite, the labels growing schedule of showcases have become a global staple for well-executed event production.
Life and Death curates soulful dance music with a post-rock aesthetic.
Imagine your dream environment, a place that's unattainable in normal circumstances, then think about having a party there. Life & Death showcases are just that, a dream, complete with house and techno. From the beaches of Miami to the Spanish countryside, the destinations stay fresh. Just around the corner from their two-day takeover of a lavish Spanish villa (i.e. the baddest mansion you've ever seen), the crew continues to solidify their place at the top. Their ability to attract the right crowd is amplified by unique destinations all with an intimate feel. Executing in unforgettable spaces like Miami's River City Studios, attention to detail goes a long way to create a truly unique experience.
As a veteran behind the decks and behind the scenes, Manfredi has a long history of doing it big in his home country of Italy. Thankfully enough, the massive success of the label has taken this experience global. Evolved into a home for musicians, DJs, and promoters curate in unison, Life and Death's aesthetic has become a way of life.
