We are extremely excited to have DJ/ producer Anthony Maniscalco join us this Friday June 23rd at MĀYĀ Day & Nightclub! More commonly known by his stage name Hook N Sling, Maniscalco has become known as one of the more exciting genre-blending producers to hit the scene. Before Scottsdale gets hooked with fun, bouncy sounds here is a little background information on the artist.
Born and raised in Sydney, house DJ Hook N Sling began his career like any other up and coming artist; at their friend’s bar. Keeping to his Aussie roots, he made a name for himself by regularly playing at local bar and clubs before signing to Australian label Hussle Recordings.
With the release of the house music anthem “Take You Higher” with Goodwill, Hook N Sling started to gain a global fan base. Shortly after, the producer began receiving bookings at party hot spots like Ibiza as well as performing spots at festivals in America, the UK and in China. With the meteoric rise of the EDM scene in America, Hook N Sling made the decision to move to Los Angeles full time.
Right before leaving Australia, Hook N Sling was nominated for his track “The Bump” in 2007 and again in 2009 for “The Best Thing” by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA). An award similar to the American Grammy, ARIA recognizes the many achievements of Aussie artists across all music genres. Similar artists like Flume and Tommy Trash have also been nominated for ARIA awards.
Moving to LA
Now calling LA his new home, a change of labels was needed. In 2012 he signed with the powerhouse team at Spinnin’ Records. Known for launching the career’s of Martin Garrix, Afrojack and many more, Spinnin’ was the perfect place for this upcoming artist. The change of labels led Hook N Sling to collaborate with famous duos like Galantis with “Love on Me”, Nervo with “Reason” and even Sam Feldt with “Open Your Eyes.” Each collaboration has gained thousands if not millions of likes, downloads and streams.
With an established sound and a fan base all around the world, this is one artist you do not want to miss out on. Tickets are FREE with RSVP, grab your spot here! Also, be sure to check out the event’s page here for more information and contest giveaways!
