Slow Magic has teamed up with Manila Killa for the namesake song of his forthcoming EP, Closer 2 U. “Closer 2 U” opens with an orchestral composition juxtaposed with groovy vocals that pick up once drums increase the energy of the single. The producers have layered vocals and jumping house notes over the top of an otherworldly production backdrop. The production of the single is complex, to say the least, and the collaborative effort has a way of highlighting the best of each producer.
Slow Magic discussed the song in an official release, stating,
“I have been following and admiring Manila Killa’s music for a long time. Last year, we met up in LA and clicked collaboratively. I think it is always great to be in the same room and bounce ideas off of each other when collaborating, but ‘Closer 2 U’ ended up being the opposite of that. We just sent versions back and forth on email and made it happen. More than ever, it’s important to remember the power of connecting that we have at our fingertips online.”
“Closer 2 U” is out now Moving Castle.
