Manila Killa
Manila Killa began in late 2009 as an artist who was interested in dance music and the culture that lied beneath it. Since then, he has grown to learn the ways of producing and performing dance music for crowds in the US as well as his homeland, Manila in the Philippines. His passion for music as a whole has prepared him to understand what people want to hear in any kind of setting, as his diverse track roster has proved him worthy of understanding many genres of dance music. His move to the Philippines in 2009 transformed his views on the culture, as an influx of so many different genres were presented to him by friends and other artists alike. This has shaped the way he views dance music today, and will pave the way to his future musical endeavors
Robotaki
Robotaki
Preston (a.k.a. Robotaki) was once a normal boy, living a rather dull and typical life. However, at the age of 14, this all changed unexpectedly when a browned piece of parchment was pushed through his letter box one winter’s evening. He held the sealed letter in his hand and noticed the lack of a return address or oily fingermarks around its border. By a dim candle light, he hungrily opened the letter and focused on the words inked at the very top which read: “You’re a producer, Harry.” Later that night, he was approached by a large man whose face was nearly covered by his beard and insisted that Preston came with him. The boy cheesed it fearing for his life.

Despite the fact the letter was blatantly addressed to the wrong person, Preston took it to heart and began to produce music in his small room under the stairs, all-the-while avoiding harassment from his annoying and life-threateningly obese older cousin. The letter also included information how to come into contact with others like himself, explaining how he would have to run into a brick pillar labelled “Platform 9 3/4.” Unfortunately, he instead suffered a concussion following these instructions and still feels the debilitating consequences today due to his lack of foresight. Regardless, he has since released his first 3 track EP, 'Raton Laveur', and has worked with the likes of AWOLNATION, The M Machine, Chilly Gonzales, The M Machine, Shinichi Osawa, Kavinsky, Housse de Racket, DJ Shadow, Penguin Prison, and Popular Computer, and is in the process of completing his second EP.
