Biography

Long Beach, New York NY, United States (1992 – present)

Goretex (Mitchell Manzanilla) is an artist, born in Long Beach, New York. He is credited along with Ill Bill as pioneering the New York underground hip-hop movement in 1992/1993.

Originally a member of Non Phixion along with Ill Bill, Sabac Red and DJ Eclipse, the group achieved massive underground success and acclaim for their debut album, “The Future Is Now”, released in 2002 on Uncle Howie Records. Produced by DJ Premier, Large Professor and Pete Rock this release has defined what an all around classic Hip Hop album should consist of. Non Phixion’s influence can be felt across the world, reaching fans and artists alike as one of the most loved and highly respected rap groups ever. Non Phixion were also the first real Hip Hop group to incorporate heavier elements in their music without draining their powerful edge, with appearances by Fear Factory and Deftones on their debut.

Following on from this success, the group members all released solo albums. Goretex’s debut album “The Art Of Dying” was released in 2004 to a wide praise of cult status and what some say, one of the most disturbing and and innovative album covers ever.[2]Goretex’s lyrics touch on all elements of the grisly and disturbing sides of life such as nuclear war, the occult, suicide, secret and hidden societys, black metal, highly satanic mysticism, drugs, personal experiences and an examination of the inner self.
