The Knocks — HEAT (feat. Sam Nelson Harris) (Manila Killa Remix)

We'll be honest, when it comes to Manila Killa, our write-ups are beginning to feel a bit repetitive, always with some form of "this is his best work to date" inevitably tumbling through our fingertips. Though, when the Moving Castle mainstay consistently outdoes himself with each new release, it's really no wonder why that is. His latest output, an immaculately composed remix of HEAT by NYC's own The Knocks (who recently wrapped up taking over the globe in support of the Biebs), is no different. Slow–building, ethereal atmosphere? Check. Perfectly executed balance of bursting crescendos and delicate melodies? You know it. Imaginative arrangements only capable at the hands of the young Philippines–born talent? 💯. What we're essentially saying here is don't miss this one. And keep your ear to the ground for more newness coming from Manila Killa in 2017.

Also, catch The Knocks on their Feel Good Feel Great tour starting in February of next year, with support from Bipolar Sunshine, Gilligan Moss, Mark Johns and more. Dates + tickets here:
