Dublin-based DJ and producer Bob Manzanilla has released on The Basement Discos today with a stunning 2 track EP. The EP highlights Bob’s adoration for house music as he showcases it ever so well through this release. Both tracks toggle between the bright and murkier side of the genre – making for a charming listen.

Foundations Records and Glass Liverpool resident Bob Manzanilla has announced his latest release on the well-regarded Basement Discos imprint. The Dublin artist possesses a versatile musical pallet ranging from deep house to techno and trance. Having played in some of the capitals finest venues such as Index, Centre Point and Here & Now as well as closing out the Someplace Else Stage at this year’s Forbidden Fruit Festival proved to be a sincere delight for this proficient artist. Additionally, Bob has also supported some of the industries most exciting artists in Ben Hemsley, Prospa and Route 94.

When asked about the release, Bob said that ‘I reached out to Carlos the owner and said he would love for me to put together an EP for him last year and January this year I sent him over two tracks which he loved, “Revolution 90’s” & “Onyx”.

Carlos’ referenced “Onyx” to the classic trance tune “Greece 2000” (which had me buzzing to get that feedback) which showcases the darker side of my style. It would be a type of track I’d play at a late club set or when it’s dark at a festival. It’s got energetic low end and some nice Deadmau5-like melodic synths that carry the track and keeps it interesting. 

I actually gave up making this track 3 years ago (Onyx). I was woken up in the middle of the night last December to my friend Alex ringing me while he was out asking me to send the private link I had sent him two years ago. I was like wtf why are you ringing me asking the most random request at 4am but it made me realise, I need to finish this track! I’m glad I did and I owe him for remembering it existed!’
