Manuel Trillo

Manuel Trillo is a Spanish solo multi-instrumentalist that lives and works in Osaka (Japan). Manuel started playing drums at the age of 16 during high-school in Málaga (Spain). He played with a "Tool-esque", "Kyussish" band called Bruyah for 10 years without publishing any album or winning any contest, due to the extremely laid back philosophy of the band, which was centered on jamming, and to which even playing live was quite a nuissance. Later on he amplified his style drumming with a cover band called Los Sintoni and with an instrumental prog trio called Extended Projection Principle. ...read more

Manuel Trillo is a Spanish solo multi-instrumentalist that lives and works in Osaka (Japan). Manuel started playing drums at the age of 16 during high-school in Málaga (Spain). He played with a "Tool-esque", "Kyussish" band called Bruyah for 10 years without publishing any album or winning any contest, due to the extremely laid back philosophy of the band, which was centered on jamming, and to which even playing live was quite a nuissance. Later on he amplified his style drumming with a cover band called Los Sintoni and with an instrumental prog trio called Extended Projection Principle. In 2009, he quit his work as a flight dispatcher at Málaga airport to work as a videogame tester and translator, first in Montreal (Canada) and soon after in Tokyo (Japan). Manuel went back to drums after a 1 year hiatus and filled the drummer spot for Viloscohaagen, Das Yukon and singer songwriter Danny katz among others. Around 2011 he recorded his first demo with a recorder and a free software in an old laptop. He had no previous knowledge of recording or mixing nor any experience singing or playing guitar. He recorded a first EP called "Sold His Soul" under the name of ManYuh. A year after, Manuel dropped the electric sound of "Sold His Soul" for a strictly acoustic, singer-songwriter sound when he moved to the inner. greener side of Kanagawa with his girlfriend. He recorded a mini-album called "The Lo-Fi Sessions" in the same fashion. He soon joined with Kenji Matsuse on drums and percussion and Shinya Hosokawa on contrabass and started performing some shows in Tokyo. Soon after, Jun Ishimoto would replace Shinya Hosokawa on fretless bass and Shinji Kaneko would complete the live act of ManYuh in guitar and vocals. With this formation, the band performed extensively in the Tokyo loop. The following year, Tadashi Yoshikawa replaced Kenji Matsuse and the singer-songwriter sound would make way to a heavier expression of their music, with Shinji bringing songs to the band and dual singing with Manuel. Unfortunately, real life got in the way and Manuel had to move to Osaka for job reasons. The band kept performing for some time but ultimately had to part ways due to schedule and distance issues. Manuel took a good 2 years off from performing on guitar and joined Kobe's electrifying combo AstroAttack on drums. The band changed its name to Pure Psycho Tokyo Girl some months after. After a heavy live schedule during the spring and summer of 2015, PPTG split up due to personal reasons and Manuel was left on a blank spot again. Gathering old material from the ManYuh era and some new sounds he had been working on recently, he recorded his first full album, "June", with a bit of better equipment this time. For "June", Manuel went back to the early concept of ManYuh and decided to go without drums or bass, but instead he opted for post rock guitar riffs and keyboards to background his guitar and singing. "June" is quite a dark album and probably his most intimate and honest musical expression up to date. "June" was released in September 2016 and it is available in several digital platforms. « hide
