Manila Killa is coming back to us this week with a glorious new track called ‘Dark Places’ which has him teaming up with Los Angeles artist Kwesi for his soulfully golden vocal sounds, and the result is really quite an invigorating slice of atmospheric electronica.
“Dark Places marks the beginning of a new perspective on how I view the world alongside music. Feelings of nostalgia have overcome many of us, including me in the past two years and I wanted to explore that realm through this song. After hearing the initial vocal demo, I immediately knew that I wanted to draw inspiration from brooding, moody and dark influences and Kwesi’s haunting voice and lyrics offer a glimpse of hope that I molded the instrumental production around.” – Manila Killa
“We have choices to make every day and sometimes, the mind can go to dark and strange places that are often unhealthy and destructive. At one point or another we find ourselves scared and confused about the past and what it means for the future. This song is about finding our way out of that darkness and working to be better for ourselves and those around us every day.” – Kwesi
