The 80s are coming back…
back to the future!

Hamburg-based music manager Manuel Pielka fulfilled a childhood dream this year: as a fan of the “Back to the Future” film series, he recently swapped his Porsche 911 for a DeLorean. Unfortunately not a flying one – and

without a built-in time machine. But it’s a bit like the cult movie “Back to the Future”: The 80s are coming back. But nothing stays the way it was back then.

The 1980s have shaped pop culture like hardly any other decade. The influences can still be felt today: many series and films are returning right now as remakes or sequels. Pop stars like David Guetta, Sia, Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa are currently trimming their hits to the syntie sounds of the 80s. But the 80s are not only back in music.

are back. Even PC games and old consoles like ATARI, SEGA MEGA DRIVE, COMMODORE C64 have been relaunched as retro versions. People are pining for the good old 80s.

Manuel Pielka has been successful as a booking agent in the international music business for several decades and in the course of his career has led well-known artists & bands such as

Destiny’s Child, Puff Daddy or R. Kelly on German stages. The company MPM MUSIC, managed by him and his wife Tanja, is now one of the market-leading booking agencies in Europe with over 200 artists.

A new music styleMusikstil
for a new pop duo

Especially the artists and live acts of the 80s & 90s are more in demand than ever. And so Manuel Pielka’s passion gave birth to an idea… The greatest hits of the 80’s are to be revived in a completely new style of music: Euro-Latin-Pop not only brings back the songs of the 80’s – but brings them into the future with Reggaeton beats and Latino sounds.

For this purpose, Manuel Pielka and his wife Tanja founded the record label MONTANIA EMPIRE RECORDS and won multi-platinum music producer Stard Ova for the project. With his productions, artists such as Pietro Lombardi,

Kay One and Leon Machère celebrated their greatest successes this year.


Music Manager Markus Krampe is ready

Party king Markus Krampe usually organizes events with 1 million visitors per year. Among other things, he has also been working with celebrities such as Lukas Podolski for many years. With his contacts in the music industry and media scene, Markus Krampe wants to make

“Pachanta” to a real brand. Last year, the event manager had to cancel all major events due to Corona. Then his former protégé Michael Wendler let all deals fall through and drifted into the realm of conspiracy theories. This meant the end of the collaboration for Markus Krampe – and so he now has time and energy for something new.

German TV station RTL accompanies the rise of »Pachanta« with a documentary

The German television station RTL will accompany the new duo from the formation of the band to their first live performances. The production of the first album, shooting of music videos, choreography trainings: In the first year of a new music project there is certainly no boredom!

Wanted: Singer with salsa in her blood

But the duo is not yet complete: Singer Cristóbal is already fixed as the male voice of “Pachanta”. The singer has already won on “POPSTARS” and can be heard as a singer in many songs by well-known artists, e.g. in “Bachata” by Kay One. The female part of “Pachanta” is still to be filled! Booking agent Manuel Pielka explains: “We are looking for a talented female singer between her early twenties and late thirties who fits the idea of “Pachanta”. A personality for whom “Dirty Dancing” is not just a movie title and who has “that certain something” in her voice.”

Instagram videos instead of casting

Anyone who wants to take off alongside Cristóbal with “Pachanta” could apply with a video via Instagram from mid-December 2020 to mid-January 2021: With an individual performance of the 80s hit “Self Control”. Star producer Stard Ova provided a demo tape and an instrumental version specially produced for this purpose. More than 600 female applicants participated, sending videos of their “Self Control” via Instagram. A team of industry professionals (managers, artists, producers, record labels) finally selected 15 female singers who qualified for the BIG FINAL.

In the BIG FINAL, the 15 best female candidates are invited to a WORKSHOP in the recording studio. There they will work with experienced professionals from the music and entertainment industry on their singing, dancing & performance, external presentation & styling, communication & empathy. The workshops will then decide who will be the SENORITA, who together with singer Cristobal will become the duo PACHANTA!

RTL accompanies the new duo, from the studio production of the new album “Miami Nights” to the shooting of music videos & choreography training to the first big live gig!
