The Manifest Collective follow up their debut release with a 6 track Various Artist EP from some of the countries rising producers. Today we premiere a track from FÍACHRA entitled ‘Bad Habits‘.
Bursting onto the scene back in 2019 throwing parties in Dublin, the crew welcomed the likes of Remco Beekwilder and Thomas P Heckmann to the capital, before Covid put a halt to the world’s dance plans.
The Manifest Record label is due to launch their second compilation on June 11th, featuring tracks from Carlton Banqs, D.A.L.I.E.N, Libra, RAMKKA and FÍACHRA, whose track we premiere today.
FÍACHRA started producing house and techno in his home studio back in 2016, and has since gone on to develop his style towards the harder, fast paced side of acid techno. With a broad taste in music, he takes influence from trance and hard house, among others. As he continued to develop his style, he began releasing tracks on SoundCloud, culminating in his debut ‘1998’ EP on ‘Platform Dublin‘ last year, plus a whole host of labels since.
In the wake of the pandemic he formed a collective called ‘Express Galway‘ with hometown friends Shane Gleeson (SMBG) and Tom Fallon, with the aim of promoting mixes and tracks from up and coming Irish DJs and producers. They also plan to release their first Various Artist compilation this year with much more planned under the Express label in the near future.
‘Bad Habits’ gives a sense of what to expect from the release, as FÍACHRA brings the noise with a slamming hard house track with trance elements throughout, and heavy rave samples ending in a wicked breakdown. Suns out, volume up!
