London Grammar - Strong (Manila Killa Remix)

London Grammar – Strong (Manila Killa Remix)

Didn’t land an Ultra tier 1 ticket? Krewella drama got you feeling a bit blue? Well have no fear, the always trustworthy Manilla Killa can surely cheer you right up. Fairly new to the scene but by no means an amateur, Manila Killa is a young and talented Filipino producer who’s down tempo and bass filled style is one that sits in quite a unique place of its own, using both house and half-step cadenced elements in individuals tracks at whim, refusing to be labeled by a single genre. His remix of electronic pop group London Grammar’s track Strong masterfully uses unaltered vocals at the tracks beginning followed by a huge climax that doesn’t hold the common 8 measure build typically heard in EDM bass tracks today. ‘Strong’s’ rhytmic and down tempo jungle bass lines waltzes with frontwoman Hannah Reid’s vocals so well fostering the warm feel of a humid savannah sunset. Another great piece by Manila Killa that’s perfect for anyone not in the mood to listen to a run of the mill banger. It’s also worth noting that Manila Killa is one half of fast rising future house duo, Hotel Garuda, whose Soundcloud you can check out here.
