The musical career of José Manuel Llamazares under the alias “Men” dates back to the early 90’s, a key moment for electronic music in northern Spain. His career began with his first professional residency at the Paranox Club in Gijón. Shortly after Men was already playing in the most famous clubs in the region such as La Real de Gijón, Avilés Locomotive, Chemistry Club, Garden Room, Tik club, among others. In 1994 he became part of the residents of Whipporwill and La Real de Oviedo, two of the most emblematic clubs in the history of electronic music in Spain.
Throughout his musical career he has performed all over the national club scene.

Currently, Men lives in Barcelona where he has a bimonthly residency at the mythical electronic music club Moog.
His sessions delve into different aspects of electronic music, without ever losing the essence of techno and the seriousness that characterizes him.
This year, he is immersed in working on his new project: the L-Men-T events that will give a lot to talk about in the local Barcelona scene, events promoted by himself.
