We received some crazy news. The infamous electronic dance duo, Hotel Garuda, just announced they will be having one last show together as a pair. Sweethearts Manila Killa and Candleweather made the statement on Facebook via a note. Our hearts are melting.
Let’s break this note down. “The book on Hotel Garuda isn’t nearly over“. Phew, this isn’t a goodbye, it is a see you later as they move on to a new chapter. Like with every great music group, sometimes it’s good to take some time for yourself. After such success in the last 4 years touring festivals and around the world, it’s definitely time to take a step back. Let’s not get too disappointed though. We believe Aseem will work independently and Chris will focus on taking Manila Killa further, as well.
“One thing we’ve learned…is that life is about change and development“. News like this seems reminiscent of how we felt when EDM super groups Swedish House Mafia (though our prayers have been answered!), What So Not, and Jack U also announced their final days.
Our beloved pair met in middle school in Indonesia. They drew influences from Thomas Jack, Bakermat, Cashmere Cat, and more to obtain their unique house sound. As one of the top 10 artists to watch in 2014, they paved their career just five months into its existence.
We would like to wish both artists the best and wait anxiously and eagerly for what becomes of them in the future. If you find yourself in the Forest, don’t miss their final set Sunday at 5:30 PM! Show them some love one last time!
