Washington-based Manila Killa has become a heavy hitter with his high-scale and elegant production. He’s been dominating the charts with his remixes and songs for years and it’s safe to say he has inspired quite a few up and coming producers. With thrilling and melodic verses, his new single “Wake Up Call” quickly became one of my favorite songs released this month.

With an old school, mainstream vibe, the single remains unique to what you would expect to hear: beautiful percussion work and extravagant editing to the maximum. It also has a huge anthem-like vocal from Australian vocalist group Mansionair ripping from start to finish that balances out greatly with Manila’s electric and ambient sounds. The song is deep lyrically and instrumental-wise, making it a true work of art for music nerds like myself.
