About me

I’m an Architect working full time in London since 2004, love doing any kind of sports and travelling as much as I can. Who doesn’t? I’ve always had a certain passion for music and the social aspect of life, and spent much of my youth in the rave scene. I’ve had the chance to see some of the great DJ’s live such as Mauro Picotto, Timo Mass, John Digweed, and Sasha. When I was 21 I had my first taste of DJ’ing. It was at a party with all my friends at the beach house in Peru. I was one of the 2 Dj’s at that party... The music always meant more to me than the social scene. It’s just taken me a while to understand exactly what it was that fascinated me. Since I began DJ’ing, I’ve realised that the musical journey for me lies in the connections between the songs, rather than in the song itself. A single song can be enhanced if it’s mixed correctly, and for me, that is the art of DJ’ing. In architectural terms, a building will have more meaning if built in the right context. If not, it will be far less appreciated. The same applies to a set. A good DJ knows his crowd and has the ability to take them on an exhilarating journey. And this is what I’ll be striving for!
I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to Become a DJ. About the teacher...He is patient, very talented, knowledgeable, knows how to listen to his students, and most importantly, he is passionate. Thanks to Mantas and our shared passion for the music, I was subsequently able to do my first live gig after only four months of classes! Thank you so much Mantas – you are not only an excellent teacher, but a friend as well.

About me

South African born, London based DJ, music lover and promoter with an ear for bass-driven, deep and techy beats. Dope Disco resident and promoter since early 2011, he now plays back2back sets with partner in crime, KillEmilio, under the alias Kids in Full Flex (K.I.F.F.). Clubs played at include Ministry of Sound, Pacha London, Electric Brixton, East Village and Public Life under labels like Cadenza, We Love, L.W.E., Finalé and Stepforward.
After growing a love for house music from an early age I had always wanted to start DJing but never really got off my ass and did anything about it!...until 2010. My mate Ryan recommended Mantas to me as a brilliant DJ teacher and spoke highly of the DJ courses he offers. I called Mantas up and he invited me over for a trial lesson. The minute I touched those decks I knew this is what I wanted to do. Within a couple lessons I had managed to master beat matching and not long after I was mixing like a pro. With Mantas's club standard equipment and extensive experience and knowledge of DJing I would highly recommend his courses for anyone looking to start DJing with an advantage over self-taught DJ’s.
