Salvatore Manalo – ‘Guava’ (Premiere)
We’re extremely excited to give you first ears to ‘Guava’, the stunning new single from US-based producer and instrumentalist Salvatore Manalo.
Opening up with waves of somber synths and strings, the melancholy mood of the track is gradually lifted with an injection of drums and layers of bright guitar tones reminiscent of early Tom Misch beat tapes.
It’s rare that an instrumental commands your attention so vehemently, yet Manalo manages it with his mesmerising lead guitar runs that sit at the front of the mix and take on the responsibility of the record’s narrative.
Soaked with soul, emotion and musicality, this is everything we look for from an instrumental and more.
