Manuel Riva, DJ & producer, whose songs are included in the setlists of renowned artists such as Tiesto, Sam Feldt and Oliver Heldens among others, is releasing today his brand new single – “Sacred Touch”.
The song, a collaboration with Misha Miller, will be on the artist’s debut album, set for release this fall.
“ The first time I met Misha Miller was during the Transfagarasan International Music Camp, set up by Roton. All I can say is that the second we started working together I knew she was a perfect fit for <>. An amazing voice which is always a pleasure to work with.” – Manuel Riva
The music video (directed by Alex Volintiru) picks up where “Hey Now” ended, with the recurring main character writing a new chapter of the story, taking advantage of the scenery of Paris, after shooting the previous 2 in London and Venice.
Aside from the radio edit, the “Sacred Touch” package contains 6 remixes from artists such as: Hyptonix, Dave Andres, Dani Zavera, Alex Vives & Ivan Deyanov, MoonSound and Paul Damixie.
“Working alongside Manuel Riva waas an incredible experience, especially since I fell in love with the track from the first beats. Even the melody was a projection of my feelings and emotions at the time, like somehow, someone transposed my emotions and feelings into the lyrics and beats.” – Misha Miller
Manuel Riva’s new release follows the same ingredients for success as his previous hits: mesmerizing vocals mixed with flirty deep-house beats bound to be stuck in your head after just one listening.
