Real Name:
Kurtis Khaleel
Be careful when submitting releases under this artist.
This page is for the one time project 'Sound Factory' AKA Kurtis Mantronik. "Cuban Gigolo" was the only track produced under that alias and it was released on the Black Havana compilation.

There's also a Swedish House act called SoundFactory, mostly known for their tracks "Understand This Groove" and "Good Time". This group was formed by Emil Hellman, James Gicho, and Pontus Hagberg AKA Evan (3).
Note that the sleeve designers spells the artist wrong in many cases. One way to recognize it's a 'SoundFactory' mix is by the mix name 'Anthem Mix'. So when it says 'Sound Factory' on the release please check artist before you submit your record.
Because there once was a very popular club in New York called the Sound Factory (active in the 1990's and residence of DJ Junior Vasquez), there are some records credited with a "Sound Factory Mix" which were simply named after the club and not necessarily mixed by an artist called Sound Factory, so watch out for that too.
