Review by Andy Howarth

The evergreen Manual Music serve us with a new 2-tracker from David Granha, a Prog & Tech House producer from Spain who’s already seen action on the likes of the Mooseekaa and MicroCastle imprints.

Title track ‘No Matter How’ combines warbling keys with a low-rumbling chuggy bassline. It’s clearly evident that David is keen to showcase his love for his country as well, as Spanish guitars compliment the package during the breakdown, and offer a stark contrast of sunshine when pitched against the dark growl of the bass.

Oniris is on hand to give the track a more Housey rework, and injects a healthy dose of percussion, in addition to a spattering of orchestral work. The end result comes across as a far more epic track than David’s original, and as such it’ll work the big room dancefloors with greater ease. Clocking in at 8 minutes, you’ll also have plenty of time to layer your next track alongside those delicate strings as well, so if you’re after some DJ-friendly Progressive House then this should fit the bill nicely.

About the Author

Born of the Oxfordshire countryside, Andy has always preferred the quaint aspects of life around a historic city to the hustle and bustle of places like London or Birmingham. That said, the desire to satisfy his thirst for live music has led to him fleeing the tranquility of rural life on a regular basis, in favour of regions where the nightlife doesn't have to come to an abrupt end at 3am.
