Manilla Killa tells us why he's quitting Hotel Garuda

News : 11 Jul 2018 :
One of our favourite Filipino artists Manilla Killa has spoken on why he left the duo Hotel Garuda, leaving Candle Weather to go it alone.
Having first met in middle school in Indonesia, Manilla Killa (Chris Gavino) and Candle Weather (Aseem Mangaokar) really blew up in 2015 with massive official remixes for the likes of Lana Del Rey, Galantis, Banks, and Kiiara. Since then they have been huge on Soundcloud, amassing tens of thousands of streams which eventually culminated in them releasing an original track on Avicii's label PRMD.

In their official statement below Chris describes his time with Hotel Garuda as being one of school friends reaching the heights of passion in dance music together, but he feels he needs to move on to see how far he can go alone.
