Electronic, Pop | Manila Killa Returns With Anthemic Original Single “Youth”

Posted by on May 27, 2016

LA based producer Manila Killa is back to show off his infectious production skills with the anthemic original track “Youth.” He first launched himself into prominence with the mellifluous and widely received “All That’s Left,” and it seems “Youth” is headed in the same direction. On this one, he teams up with vocalist Satica to deliver an electronic pop gem glimmering with feel-good melodies and bursting with unabashed energy.

Consistent with the title, “Youth” is meant to convey the feeling of being completely alive and uninhibited. The lyrics tell a story characterized by freedom and the self-assured confidence that comes with being young. The feeling is emphasized by smooth piano work, expansive chords and Satica’s silky voice. It’s just in time for summer and can accompany you throughout warm nights blissful dancing, questionable choices and reckless abandon.

Gryffin has been the mastermind behind some of the year’s best remixes, including his take on Troye Sivan’s “Youth” and CHVRHCES’ “Clearest Blue,” but with summer fast approaching, he’s joined forces with Manila Killa on a stunning take of Jack Garratt’s “Surprise Yourself” that we’ll be bumping for the rest of the year. This remix is signature Gryffin infused with trademark Manila Killa, as Jack Garratt’s infectious croons are bolstered by soaring synth arpeggios and a bumping bassline. Check it out above and keep an eye out for more Gryffin and Manila Killa coming in the future.

Collectives are all the rage right now. Moving Castle has stood out among the rest as this group of Internet kids seem to have some serious creativity in the tank. Founding member AOBeats, Manila Killa, and Robokid started this project as a way to push each other to become better producers and they have now pulled in over 15 artists to build what Moving Castle is today. Their latest compilation, Volume 004, really steps up their love for bass-ridden genres and playful accents with the collective bringing in a couple newcomers to feature their tracks. One newcomer, Chet Porter, really shined with his track “Aluko River” that seems to take on a fantastical nature and really transport listeners into a dream-like world. Moving Castle Volume 004 is up for free download as usual so grab your copy now!

I was just put on to this latest project by Moving Castle, properly entitled Moving Castle Volume 2, and it’s a nice selection of jersey club, meets future bass, with a dab of trap and chillwave feels, but you know as the French say “fuck a genre,” so listen, vibe out, and shut up, this is some super dope sound! I went through the project and picked out 3 of my favorites off the mixtape, particularly AObeats, Manila Killa, and Vices’ “Food Diaries,” Dugong Jr’s “In Love” and a close third , Robokid and Ba-kuura’s “Pegasus.” On the real, I love everything about this project, the pitched up, chopped up female vocals always get to me! This is a must listen and a must download!

Bass, Chill, Electro | Sevyn Streeter (ft. Chris Brown) – It Won’t Stop [Manila Killa & Hunt For the Breeze Remix]

Posted by on May 28, 2014

Right about now is the time of the year when all artists kick it in to overdrive with their output of summer-friendly music. A few days ago, Manila Killa and Hunt for the Breeze took to Sevyn Streeter and Chris Brown’s song, “It Won’t Stop” to give it their own special treatment.

With a sound reminiscent of Trippy Turtle, Manila Killa and Hunt for the Breeze bring a jazz-infused and groovy flare to the song. The vocals of Streeter and Brown are incorporated flawlessly with Jersey Club-type synths and breaks.

Enjoy the refreshing track, and toss it on this week’s playlist.
