Manila Killa has another single for us this week called ‘Desire’ which features the golden vocal sounds of Los Angeles artist MADI, and they do sit quite comfortably amongst Manila Killa’s instrumental backdrop of screaming synths and energetic beats.
Manila Killa has also just announced he will be giving us his debut album “Dusk” on July 21st which will also coincide with a huge North American your that is happening throughout September/November – dates & ticketing info can be found here
“With ‘Desire,’ I wanted to showcase a darker, moodier, emotional side of my production. I started with some lush piano chords which I wanted to contrast with a deeper, grittier electronic-driven drop. The pieces began to fall into place when Madi sent me the initial vocal demo she wrote over it. She wrote about leaving something very unhealthy, which can be applied to any sort of situation, whether it be a relationship or a part of life. It’s the feeling of a newfound freedom that she focused on, which translated into trusting your gut even if leaving the situation is deemed bittersweet. The song is intimate yet powerful, and I hope that everyone who listens can relate and understand what we were going for.” – Manila Killa
