Alessandro Manny, a.k.a. Mahmoud, is from Milan but half-breed, egyptian dad and sardinian mom. This mix gave him unique features.
1,80 tall, loves sports and singing above anything. Since he was a child, he always trained different singing techniques, both modern and classical, but also opera, refine it on a day by day basis.
This passion and the manic search of perfection led him, though his young age, to tour the world to pursue what he calls "The sound of God".
His deepest inspirational sources have been the singers of the so called soul and R&B, such as John Legend, Daniel Merryweather, Anthony Hamilton, but also developed a great respect for Christina Aguilera, of whom he tattoed on his arm, the the title of the song "I will be".
His debut single "FALLIN' RAIN" has been subject to a real sought after, also considering that it's a soul track by a newcomer: from the States, to Japan, from Germany to the UK, from Spain to Greece, all of the biggest producers of the genre showed interest.
Nevertheless, Alessandro decided to stay in Italy and start his climb to success from his own country and he did it availing himself of two talented and notorious producers of the italian music scene: Emiliano Pepe (writer of the song) and Pierpaolo Peroni (producer of the song and famous on the local scene for his partnership with Max Pezzali as of his debut).
The friendship between Pierpaolo Peroni ("Pierpa" for his friends) and Max Moroldo, led Mahmoud to Do It Yourself. The more dance oriented characteristic of Moroldo's label, push him to launch the project with a few dance remixes, which have been deveopled by the skillful minds of Gianni Bini and Simone Vitullo: as well Italians.
Though from to different areas of house music, both Bini and Vitullo, wrapped up two great remixes.
Bini's one (Jamiroquai, Backstreet Boys, George Benso and Vasco Rossi among his works) more radio friendly, while Vitullo's is aiming at the international dancefloors. FALLIN' RAIN is a real diamon and, as such, owns different sides, including a stunning acoustic version which will lead all female fans to fall in love with him... so let's get RAIN!
