Italian DJ and producer Manuold returns to Madhouse this February as he unveils his ‘Smiles’ EP.

Following a busy 2019 which saw releases via the likes of DJ Steaw’s House Puff and Spanish imprint Esuoh, not to mention a contribution to Madhouse’s ‘MMXIX’ Various Artists compilation, late-February sees Italian talent Emanuele Macagone, aka Manuold, deliver his first full EP on the label as he returns with his four-track ‘Smiles’ EP.

Lead cut ‘Smiles’ sees Macagone combine slick organic production licks alongside bright synth stabs and resonant vocal hooks, before ‘This Is Power’ reveals a series of hazy lead melodies atop of skipping drums and further slick vocal work. Next up, the paired back ‘Sweet Groove’ welcomes a well-worked balance of evolving synths at its core, before closing the package out via ‘Old Tradition’ – a slick, chord-driven final cut that feels perfectly at home on Chandler’s ever-impressing imprint.
