London Grammar – Strong (Manila Killa Remix)
As one half of Hotel Garuda, Manila Killa has forged his own identity apart from his partnership of Candle Weather. Now joining the likes of Claude VonStroke, Tensnake, and Arty who have taken on original mixes from London Grammar, the producer has toned down “Strong” and the result is a chilling re-imagination. Easing into the original’s vocals with hollow claps and soft guitar plucks, one half of Hotel Garuda flawlessly builds upon Hannah Reid’s swooning before introducing a laid back bassline that’s molded with a delicate strike. Proving his credentials again apart from his more prevalent alias, Manila Killa has offered a fresh take on an artist that’s often remixed by electronic music’s elite.
