As individuals carving their own lanes in recent years, MYRNE and Manila Killa have given asian artistry a much-needed voice in the electronic space. After both releasing their debut projects last year and embarking on tour together by way of Manila Killa’s 1993 EP tour, the two producers have inevitably teamed up for a collaborative EP. Released Ultra Records, the two-track project Fluorescence finds MYRNE and Manila Killa join their respective sounds in an introspective exploration of their artistic identity and growth.
The joint EP showcases the duo’s own vocals intertwined with emotive production and pastel sonics. “Fear” features lush synths and soft sensibilities while the pair take on their early inspirations of progressive house with their own dynamic style in “Where Do We Go From Here?”—embellished with dexterous vocal chops.
“‘Fear’ and ‘Where Do We Go From Here’ are songs that encompass change and the experience of going through a transition of growth. These songs are explorations of influences that both of us bonded over when we toured together,” stated the pair.
