Florence is the romantic birthplace of the renaissance, the place that brought us visionaries such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo, so don’t expect some rickety warehouse where the bogs don’t work when you go to Tenax. Classic forms of house and techno remain at its core and Tenax stays true to it’s roots.

To get a taste of the Tenax vibe, go ahead and listen to an exclusive set by Davide Squillace to celebrate his gig at Tenax last Saturday.

For the latest edition of the WhoSampled interview series, we speak with John Manuel, drummer, percussionist and band leader with the group RAMP, a Roy Ayers affiliated project whose debut album ‘Come Into Knowledge’ is widely considered a jazz fusion / rare groove classic. Tracks from the album have been sampled by the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Common and Erykah Badu among many others. In this interview John talks about his tenure as drummer for The Spinners, recording at Jimi Hendrix‘s studio in New York, working with Roy Ayers and Edwin Birdsong and his admiration for the new generation of artists who have sampled and reworked his classic recordings.
