DJ MONEYPULATION real name Sandro Natali, born 1986 in Basel, Switzerland.
His great passion for music developed rather early. At the age of 14 he began collecting Vinyl and spent most of his leisure time in record shops. He grew up predominantly with 90’s rap and still feels deeply connected to it. Through the «Golden Era» he discovered his love for hip hop culture and its different elements. As time went on he started dealing more deeply with the culture and due to this he also found the route to funk, soul and rhythm & blues. He realised how intricately these genres are interconnected with rap.
As time passed his interest grew and the desire to give some of the love back, that he gets from music, increased. He tried Mcing and the art of graffiti, but neither of them felt “right”. In Djing he finally found the right outlet to express himself. At this time he got to know the successful and very talented DJ Redrum who shared some of his knowledge. Due to this he feels a dept of gratitude.
After his first gig, his great passion was unstoppable. He kept on working on his skills. In 2013 he won a DJ Battle in Berne and founded his first urban party label in Basel. As time went by he played in different clubs and collected a lot of experiences and in September 2014 he was admitted to the DJ roster of NoHook!. He was very excited, that he became a resident DJ at the former 25UP event series at the beginning of 2016. In 2016 he was also admitted to the DJ roster of the well-known booking agency Action Booking. Besides playing club gigs he is also DJing at weddings.
He loves what he does and you can feel that energy, when he is behind the turntables. Regardless of whether DJ Moneypulation plays black music, "party classics" or current hits, he always has a knack for the appropriate song. To sum up, one can say that his love for music let him moving swiftly forward and is his major "driving force".
