Following the release of ‘Somewhere’ with Shallou, Slow Magic today teams up with Manila Killa for the title track of Slow Magic’s forthcoming Closer 2 U EP.
Haunting to its core, Slow Magic and Manila Killa deliver a spectral symphony in their newest. Ripe with burgeoning synth work and otherworldly vocals echoing the track name and EP namesake, ‘Closer 2 U’ is a striking departure from Slow Magic’s traditionally glistening sound. A powerful play to both Slow Magic and Manila Killa’s strengths, ‘Closer 2 U’ is the euphoric middle ground of both producers finest.
The collaboration has us anticipating the EP even more, which is set to be released August 19th.
“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.” – Slow Magic
“’Closer 2 U’ represents the difficulties of distance and the importance of connection. I want this EP to encourage and inspire people to reach out to the ones they care about in a time where we are all feeling distant.” – Slow Magic
