Manila Killa starts the year strong with punchy single and headlining tour announcementManila Killa

2018 was a year of big transitions for Chris Gavino, more popularly known by his DJ/producer alias, Manila Killa, with his decision to focus on his solo career after a successful bout as one half of Hotel Garuda.

In honor of his new focus as a one-man show, Gavino announced he would be dropping his debut EP as Manila Killa in early 2019. He has now delivered his third and final single from the EP before its full release. The track is an intricate blend of soul-warming synths and edgy vocals provided by Sara Skinner. Titled “All 2 U,” the track opens with pulsing electro notes that frame Skinner’s vocals, floating between breathy and punchy.

The radio-friendly release is not the only news the producer has, as he also just announced his first headlining tour as Manila Killa, entitled 1993. Gavino speaks about his 1993 tour in an official release:

“…I’ll be going on my first headlining tour, where I’ll be showcasing a lot of the music I’ve been working on for the past year,” he writes. “Thank you all for the support you’ve been showing me…”

The 1993 tour will span across major markets throughout the United States. Fans can check if he is coming to a city near them and purchase tickets here.

Both SNBRN and Hotel Garuda are known for their laid back and approachable take on house music. After dropping off “One Reason,” his first solo single since the departure of Manila Killa, back in November, Hotel Garduda has enlisted SNBRN for an official remix of the uplifting track.

SNBRN puts a deeper, more atmospheric house vibe on the pop-oriented original. With powerful chords and bold synths grounding the remix, SNBRN’s take on “One Reason” is equally fitted for a live set from both producers, merging their respective styles into one complementary remix. While keeping the vocal chops of the original intact, SNBRN brings in emotive strings and textures to accompany them, resulting in an alluring rework offering.

Hotel Garuda surprised fans earlier this summer when they announced that their performance at Electric Forest would be the end of the duo as we knew them. With Chris Gavino, better known as Manila Killa, focusing more on his solo work, many wondered how Hotel Garuda would proceed going forward. After releasing a remix of Clean Bandit and Demi Lovato’s track “Solo,” Aseem Mangaokar has taken the reins of the Hotel Garuda project and dropped “One Reason,” his first original track since the departure of Manila Killa.

The song features vocalist and producer Imad Royal and rising R&B artist Kiah Victoria. Placing smooth harmonies atop a crisp, bouncy beat, Hotel Garuda taps the introspection of his vocalists and pairs it with his own uplifting production, making for an overall infectious track. With “Welcome to Hotel Garuda” written on the album art, we can only hope that this is just the beginning of a new chapter for the artist.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday.

Electronic artists have blessed out eardrums once again with heavy-hitting percussive projects, sultry harmonies, catchy melodies, and crisp vocals. Fatboy Slim‘s festival classic, “Praise You,” receives a funky edit from Purple Disco Machine. Hotel Garuda lends his crafty melody-chop work alongside Imad Royal and Kiah Victoria, while Taska Black continues to show why bitbird is bending boundaries in the future bass space. Midnight Kids and Tritonal do what they do best with uplifting atmospheres and infectious melody drops. Former member of Krewella — Kris “Rain Man” Trindl — caresses Vikki Gilmore’s vocals amongst bouncing guitars and driving harmonies on “Take It Closer.” JayKode and ORIENTAL CRAVINGS go hard on their projects for Flux Pavillion & Doctor P‘s Circus Records imprint and a remix of Alison Wonderland‘s single with SLUMBERJACK, “Sometimes Love,” respectively.

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.

Hotel Garuda’s hit single ‘Blurry Eyes’ gets a remix EP

Hotel Garuda’s hit single ‘Blurry Eyes’ gets a remix EPPRESS SHOTBYWOZNIAK 8

Following the announcement of their break-up, Aseem Mangaoka has taken the reigns of the former Hotel Garuda duo, while Manila Killa focuses on his solo project. However, “Blurry Eyes” (their final release for the time being), has been gaining a lot of positive traction since its June 2018 release. To complement its success, the track now has its very own remix EP, which features fellow members of the 2+2 artist management crew including Pusher, Golf Clap, and Holly. Fans are also gifted with a remix from LA-based Tim Gunter.

Multi-talented Toronto DJ Pusher kicks off the EP with a some hard, yet subtle synths on his drop, maintaining the grooviness of the original.

Detroit-based duo Golf Clap is up next, picking up the tempo a bit and adding in house vibes, putting some flare on the club-geared track.

Third, Tenampa Recordings’ Holly loops Runn‘s vocals with some added echoes, leading perfectly into a drop that can only be described as bass-infused dub. It’s one of the darker remixes on the EP that listeners can still get down to.

Lastly, Mr. Gunter hops on to close it out, reducing the original’s speed and doing what he does best: amplified percussion under some future bass flow on the drop. It’s the perfect finale to a diverse range of sounds and sub-genres.

Check out the original track here and catch Hotel Garuda at Carson Creek Ranch in Austin, Texas on Sept. 21.

Hotel Garuda announce their break up

The duo Hotel Garuda, comprised of Chris Gavino and Aseem Mangaoka, have been beautifully crafting their uplifting house tunes for a magical four years now. However, today they deliver the news that after their upcoming Electric Forest show they will no longer be a duo.

As sad as it might be, they say that this will not be the end of Hotel Garuda and assure that this is only the next chapter.

So, if this is anything like the case with What So Not and Flume, one could assume that Chris will move completely over to his Manilla Killa project and Aseem will remain as the face of Hotel Garuda…but only time will tell.

After a brief hiatus, Hotel Garuda returns in full force with their new single, “Blurry Eyes.” Coming off an iconic performance at Holy Ship!, the duo enlisted former Illenium and Seven Lions collaborator RUNN for this release, which is set to be lead track on their forthcoming EP.

Out on Mom + Pop Music, this track hits all the spots with an upbeat tempo that seamlessly blends deep guitar riffs, major-chord synths, and Runn’s cheeky vocals, leaving listeners with some optimistic vibes for the summer. Regarding the release, Hotel Garuda had some words on the creative process:

“Going into this year we really wanted to make our mark with original work that spoke not only to our influences but to our experiences as well. Our first session this year was with RUNN and co-writer David Pramik, and sharing our experiences with them was a great way for us to channel our lives into music. We can’t thank both of them enough for being part of our musical journey.”

They’ll take the Pavilion stage at Firefly Music Festival on June 16, with additional tour dates to come.
