You cannot accuse Eric de Man of tunnel vision. This musical omnivore is an all-rounder. Influences from all around turn into steaming grooves, topped with funk as only Eric makes and plays records. Evergreens like I Am Somebody (Gert van Veen) and Saturday night (with Colonel Adams) are irrefutable evidence. And the countless dance floors he enraptured the past 20 years can say amen to that.

Eric’s illustrious sets as a resident of Club Risk, Now & Wow and Welcome to the Future have been the inspiration for many artists to run with the same infectious enthusiasm. Legendary releases as under alias Astro Phunk on Discogs are still in high demand and paid big money for. But Eric is not the person to stare blindly at his illustrious past. Under the motto “It is not where you from, it’s where you at”, his focus has always been on the future.

After several experimental years Eric is back where we see him best: a fish in the familiar waters of funky jacking Chicago grooves. His residency for WKND at Studio 80 has played a major role – the fresh influx of classic house with a futuristic edge. Inspired by his background and all the new developments in the electronic music, Eric plays house for the twenty-first century. Or, as in the cult film Paris Is Burning is said: “Future Roots For Children Legendary”.
