It’s a @Spirixmusic remix for “I Want You” by @Robotaki & @ManilaKilla featuring @MatthewJohnKurz

Young L.A.-based producer/remixer Spirix has scored with a handful of both originals and remixes while he continues in college, with every one of them offering a somewhat signature sound that will serve him well going forward.  To me, Spirix actually improves on the original of “I Want You” by the awesome duo of Robotaki and Manila Killa (of Hotel Garuda), featuring a killer vocal by Matthew John Kurz, who himself has appeared in these blog pages a number of times.  It’s all about ear-dropping future bass beats and high end synths, so very complimentary to Matthew’s heartfelt vocal.  “I Want You” was a pre-holiday remix gift from Spirix, so get it while you can at the link above.

“Tonight” is a formidable collab between France’s @Kidswaste and @HotelGaruda’s own @ManilaKilla

KIDSWASTE & MANILA KILLA, “Tonight”

“Tonight” is cozy, shiny electropop for spending those special moments with someone when everything is all right in the world and troubles melt away.  It’s definitely a step in another direction for progressive/alternative French producer Kidswaste and one half of American production duo Hotel Garuda, Manila Killa.  Co-written (and sung, unbilled) by Chelsea Cutler with the guys, its instant familiarity resembles a sequel to or continuation of Chet Porter’s 2016 hit “Stay” (also of course with vocals by Chelsea) – not a bad thing at all!  While it may take a few listens to sink in, the song starts out bold but ends up with a slight but satisfying finish.  Chelsea’s distinct voice goes a long way and carries a pretty melody.  Check it out at the link above.

Kidswaste opens for Hotel Garuda in Toronto at The Velvet Underground on Friday, December 15.
