Manycure is Tiago de Castro, a young Portuguese producer from Lisbon. He is one of the founders of the collective Human Afterall, has works edited by Micro Digital, Two Dots Recordings and the Berlin based label, KODX. He has already showcased his talents as resident of EGO events at EKA Palace and Lux Frágil in Lisbon among other places throughout Portugal.
Tiago is obsessed by the hypnotic side of sound, mostly associated with repetition and simplicity of elements, alongside the emotional strand achieved through melody. A daring combination, yet fruitful nonetheless. We like those who risk, those who are not afraid to go crazy or misunderstood, those who innovate, those who jump without fear: it are these people who often have the marks of history.
How to accurately describe Manycure's latest addition to the Karakter chapters? Pulsating, hypnotic rhythms combined with soul-piercing synths perhaps explains it best. Both ‘Hypocrite’ and ‘Hear her‘ slowly entrench themselves into the mind, ambiguous in its mood by walking a thin line between ominous and hopeful.
Supported by: Undo, Raph (Cabare Nocturne), Panorama Channel, Alvaro Cabana, Low Manuel and Twofold among others.
