Surveying the wonders of cultures from across the globe, Chris Gavino, best known as Manila Killa is a well-traveled producer inspired by his cross-continental upbringing. A now decorated producer with an expansive repertoire of accolades, Manila Killa cut his musical teeth as a high schooler in The Philippines by combining self-taught Ableton lessons with a penchant for electronic music. Guided by emotion-driven soundscapes and the connective nature of melodic dance music, Manila Killa excels at synthesizing the foundations of human passion. In 2014, he formed the successful house duo Hotel Garuda and co-founded his own independent record label Moving Castle which has since housed acts like Slow Magic, AObeats, Khamsin, and many more. Since his departure from Hotel Garuda in 2018, Manila Killa refined his solo craft with his 2019 debut EP 1993 which garnered praise from media heavyweights like Billboard, Forbes, and Ones To Watch adding to a laundry list of critical acclaim joining tastemakers like Complex, Paper, and NYLON. With official remixes for Chvrches, The Knocks, Tegan and Sara, and performances at festivals like Firefly, Ultra Miami, Electric Zoo, 88rising’s Head in the Clouds, and more, Manila Killa is defined in equal parts as a producer, performer, and in-demand collaborator. Dedicated to the consciousness of contemporary dance music, Manila Killa is distilling years of passionate experience and expertise to unveil his debut album in the summer of 2022.

The Magician w/ Warner Case & Tony Smooth – 9:30 Club (DC)

$30.00

Friday October 21st, 2022
Doors 10PM
9:30 Club (815 V St NW, WDC)

It is with a hint of mystery and wonder that The Magician established himself as one of modern house music’s most celebrated names over the past decade. As a founder of iconic electro-pop act Aeroplane he helped pioneer the confluence of accessibility and progression within the genre, disembarking from the flight in 2010 to chart his own way forward. Early releases followed with French tastemaker label Kitsuné on the way to his multi-platinum remix of Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers.” Such momentum earned the co-sign of Parlophone/Warner Records and a series of top ten hits around the world.

His last release was the “Renaissance” EP in May 2020 with two tracks called “You and me” and “Disco Romance.” The POTION ethos is simple — champion the sounds he loves on his own terms, never settling for the norm and always with a touch of Magic. Since then, the Magician has relaunched his own music label, called Potion Records with great projects like Soda State, and The Aston Shuffle or Warner Case.

And for the past decade The Magician’s seminal Magic Tapes compilation series have soundtracked some of life’s most prized moments for fans around the world. Deep disco cuts to accompany a first kiss, sultry House tunes to mend a broken heart, and of course late-night dance anthems that guide the party to the afters and onwards in style. Today, The Magician has exceeded the 100th edition of his infamous series. The secret of that Magic Tape is to give his closest fans new tracks that have just been relesead or that will soon be, to keep the magic going. Mainly released on Souncloud for true music lover, that particular gift to his fan will soon be available on Apple Music too. The Magic Tape 100 was particularly unique because The Magician released an anniversary album and surrounded himself with a cast of some of dance music’s brightest stars such as Boston Bun, Jean Tonique and Planningtorock.

Productions aside, it has been on the dancefloor that the spirit of The Magician has been truly felt and heard. His career has taken him around the world and back, bringing a sense of surprise and a mystic touch to sold out crowds at some of dance music’s favorite clubs and festivals including Coachella, Primavera Sound Festival, Hideout Croatia, EDC Las Vegas, Warung in Brazil, Printworks London, Trouw in Amsterdam, Zouk in Singapore and many more. The POTION flag has also ran the gamut of rave, hosting unique takeovers at Avant Gardner in Brooklyn, Tomorrowland, Hideout in Croatia, Nitsa in Barcelona, Showcase in Paris, Electric Brixton in London, Exchange in LA, Sala in Mexico City, Melkweg in Amsterdam and Miami Music Week. Despite pandemic, The Magician had a successful US Tour in 2021. He will be on stage in 2022 through an US Tour in February and will take back his residency at Elsewhere in Brooklyn in 2022. With already 5 releases for 2022, he’s coming back with a lot some new spells and music!

Phantoms – This Can’t Be Everything Tour – 9:30 Club (DC)

$20.00

Thursday November 3rd, 2022
Doors 7PM
9:30 Club (815 V St NW, WDC)

Phantoms, comprised of Los Angeles-based natives Kyle Kaplan and Vinnie Pergola, are a dance act that does exactly that. Often tough to box in… the boys’ style lends itself to many elements of electronic and pop music; while still managing to always incorporate distinct synths and drum samples that have become synonymous with their “genre” of alternative electronic. Stemming from deep-seated roots in music and entertainment backgrounds, K&V put their entire beings into the project. They keep everyone continually dancing with an impressive live set of drum pads, synthesizers and midi controllers, while also keeping audiences engaged through their own style of humor on social media platforms. A full-time job for the band. Their fun and downright captivating personalities shine through all aspects of Phantoms.

After releasing their first EP in 2015 to massive press like Billboard and Entertainment Weekly, the duo has been remixing some of their favorite songs of the year and playing shows and touring with the likes of Big Wild, Com Truise, Kiesza and more.

The band’s debut record, Phantoms, is currently out now via Casablanca/Republic Records.
