New York City's The Knocks are a household name in the electronic scene, especially with their takes on indie pop tunes to more contemporary bangers. The duo might best be known for their signature work "Classic", which was a tasty treat in the form of a funky nu-disco track with a future twist. Since their inception in the scene, Ben "B-Roc" Ruttner and James "JPatt" Patterson have become a supreme team in the realm of all electronic music that speaks to upbeat energies and positive vibes.

A month back now, the duo unveiled a sultry track titled "Heat" featuring vocals by Sam Nelson Harris. Subtle tropical tropes alongside a waned tempo made the track a chilled but perky work with it's warm sound. Moving Castle's own Manila Killa has the tendency to add his flair to uplifting indie pop material, including the recent release of "Heat". In his remix of "Heat", he adds jaunty drum work to a vivacious chord progressions. Adding contrast from the original, the track goes into a light trap breakdown in the middle, with minimalist synths pounding over flaring and elongated horns in the back. In Manila Killa's remix, he adds an experimental flair shedding new perspectives to the track.
