"Breathing beats. An on going journey to search for a customized audio visual feast. Finding the driving/harmonizing elements for perfect synchronicity. Open ears evolving with sound and all its complexity. Blips and beeps were what it was before it became the groove that moves everything. The pace of reality is far behind when the bass goes BOOM!"

Menimal (aka Manal) is a name synonymous with dance music in Maldives. Since he started DJing six years ago he has gone on to become one of the most well known and respected DJs in the local scene. He dabbled in various styles of music including R&B, Hip-Hop, Funk and Soul before he settled in with Electronica.

He has brought his unique style to various parts of the country and is a regular on the luxury resort entertainment circuit. He can be regularly seen in places like , Conrad Maldives at Rangali Island where he is residing at the moment, Huvafenfushi (Per Aquum), The Waldorf Astoria Beach House at Manafaru, Dusit Thani Maldives and at more than 20 other local resort brands.

He is also part of a collective of local artists and DJs that organize and host their own events and was one of the leading figures behind D.U.S.T, the most notorious rave in the Maldives to date. In 2008, he also hosted Palm Lounge, a series of monthly lounge nights in Male', the capital of Maldives.

Not content with doing all that, Menimal is now producing his own music. You can't really pin down his productions as he is currently experimenting with various styles from ambient down tempo music to upbeat house music. He is a part of the island's first electronic live chill out act with 4 others that go by name of Chi. Started off with Sundown sessions and got on to developing their sound by the beach of Conrad Maldives in late 2009.Having enough original material the act hosted a Lounge night for the Miss France 2011 at Coco palm Bodu hithi in 2010.

One of the highlights of his career is DJing at the Ministry of Sound in London this July. Menimal is definitely an artist to watch out for in the future as he sets his sights on making an impression on the world!

Up for collaborative projects and happy to share stems for sampling and remixing.
