Good Morning Mix: Manila Killa shares influences surrounding his ‘1993’ EP on Diplo and Friends
Manila Killa recently released a mix for Diplo and Friends featured on BBC Radio 1Xtra where he showcases music from his new 1993 EP, influences that inspired the project, and tunes from friends, including the likes of Robotaki, Louis The Child, and Slow Magic. The outpour of emotion and melody hit quickly with soothing chords, wistful plucks, and a rhythm simply idyllic to get your morning started. The blossoming artist born in the Philippines and based out of Washington DC brings along ODESZA, Rüfüs Du Sol, Whethan, Daft Punk, San Holo, Virtual Self, Lane 8, and more along for the hour ride of certified earworms.
1993 found its home on Manila Killa’s Moving Castle imprint, a culture hub and artist collective formed by him, AObeats, and Robokid. The EP title, he divulged, serves as Manila Killa’s personal ode to dance music; the DJ behind the mix celebrates the ever-developing space properly.
