Having performed for less than five years, Manuel Camacho is a relative newcomer to the DJ world. But that doesn't he's any less talented that any of the more experienced turntablists, platter jocks, or knob-twisters in the Valley scene.

The 24-year-old, who performs as Maneone, has spent the last half-decade building up his DJing chops at such venues as Bar Smith, Hidden House, and the Yucca Tap Room, which have made his already potent skills as a mixmaster and selector that much better.
