    Dillon Francis might have outdone himself with the hilarious video for ‘Hello There’

    Sign in to follow this  

    Dance music’s resident funnyman Dillon Francis has just dropped the official video for his new single ‘Hello There’ — and we think he might have finally outdone himself on this one.

    The LA producer plays every character in the vid, which is a glorious piss take of cheesy, US talk show culture. It was directed by comedy crew The Dads, who you might know from a bunch of Funny or Die videos.

    “The video for ‘Hello There’ is my favourite thus far in my career,” said Francis. “Working with The Dads was almost as insane as playing all the different characters in the video.”

    It might be the best performance from Francis since he played a speed-dealer wearing, spiked-hair rocking, party-crashing DJ for hire in his 2016 vid for ‘Need You’. Get your eyes around it below.

    ‘Hello There’ is the second release from Francis this year, with his G-Eazy collaboration ‘Say Less‘ dropping back in April.

      Da Hool, producer of the 1997 massive hit “Meet Her At The Love Parade”, has hit out on social media this week claiming that an artist called “Joel Corry” ripped off his track. 

      Da Hool (Frank Tomiczek) posted on Facebook this week stating Joel Corry had released a track called "The Parade" which used a sample of his track "Meet Her At The Love Parade" without his permission.  Da Hool posted that label CR2 Records had contacted him three times in regards to using a sample of his track and each time he denied the request telling the label "We unfortunately can't give you approval , because there will be another release soon, Sorry for not having better news". The label informed him a few weeks ago that Corry had released the song on his own still keeping the original sample.  Da Hool states that he and Warner Chappell have requested removal of this song from various social media and music sites, including YouTube, but the artist continues to re-upload the track to YouTube. When asked about it, Da Hool told us that “It's not the fact, that he has done it. it was just the way how this happened! We are planning to do a re-release by ourself and this is what i told the label and the artist when they asked for approval three times.”. Da Hool refers to the action as “An absolutely No-Go. Illegal, ignorant and disrespectful”.  He adds “It's an honor for me as an artist and producer if other people, young or old, are remixing or remaking my tunes, but do it in a cool and respectful way and don't steal music.”

      Plagiarism is rife in the music industry, with a large number of popular producers using samples of other people’s tracks in their own. Ed Sheeran has famously been caught out on in on a number of occasions, with using tracks from the late Marvin Gaye in his track “Thinking Out Loud”, and Sheeran’s collaboration with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on track “The Rest Of Our Live”, which rips off Jasmine Rae’s song “When I Found You”.  Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams has also been caught out, with a $5million lawsuit against them for using Marvin Gaye’s track “Got to Give It Up”. In fact, even recently, Marshmello is facing a lawsuit from fellow EDM producer Arty over similarities between Marshmello’s “Happier” and Arty’s remix of OneRepublic’s “I Lived”.  A google search on plagiarism in the music industry shows so many cases where a popular artist has ripped off another artist’s sample or song.  Our research even found that another track by Harry Ley, called “Love Parade”, released by the same label that released “The Parade”, Up-Tempo Records, also contains a sample that sounds very similar to the Da Hool hit from 1997.

      When we reached out to Da Hool to find out more about what he plans in regards to the copyright infringement, he told us that “(his) legal department and Warner Chappell are just working on (the claim) but it seems that JC is understandable and he knows that he has done something wrong, so it should be settled”. Da Hool recognises that most labels know how to do business correctly, and does not believe it was in any way the fault of the label, CR2 Records. 

      At the time of writing, a representative for Joel Corry and CR2 Records had not responded to our requests for comment, and Up-Tempo Records could not be contacted, with their Facebook page and website being taken offline.  In fact, the Corry track has also since been removed from many of the mainstream music sites such as Beatport, Google Play, Soundcloud, and Apple Music.

      If there is one huge bonus to come of this, we now know to keep an eye out in the near future for a re-release of Da Hool’s massive hit!  Watch this space people!

      Mathieu Koss is the French producer that’s collaborated with singer, song writer and rapper Aloe Blacc on a care free party anthem that’s jam-packed with musical positivity. Never Growing Up is a single that rejoices in the ability to connect with your inner silliness. The new video embraces these elements and depicts an imaginative version of what it’s like to be young. The narrative follows an abundance of children who take pleasure in disrupting the mundane pattern of the 9-5, all whilst Aloe Blacc and Mathieu Koss encourage the innocent injection of mayhem. 
       
      Since 2015, Mathieu Koss has delivered an array of persistent pop house tracks that are shamelessly tinged with the guilt-free atmosphere of summer. He saw his career sky rocketed after the release of Angus and Julia Stones’ folk flip, Big Jet Plane, alongside fellow dance enthusiast Alok. He continued to over flow musically with successes such as Best Is Yet to Come, Rebel Yell and Campfire. These releases saw huge DJ support from mammoth influencers like Sam Feldt, Robin Schulz, Lost Frequencies and Martin Garrix.

      Echoing Mathieu’s inspiring message of unity, Aloe Blacc always ensures an inspirational vocal that nods towards his jazz and soul roots. In 2013, Aloe Blacc received deserved recognition as a song writer after co-writing Avicii’s mega hit Wake Me Up, which shot to #1 in over 100 countries. Shortly following, Blacc released chart topping single The Man, followed by his Interscope debut album, Lift Your Spirit. The album went on to receiving a Grammy nomination for best R&B Album. Lift Your Spirit presented Aloe for the first time as a versatile artist that thrived through the medium of pop, soul, funk and R&B. Since then, Aloe Blacc has embraced more dance music realms by featuring on the Tiesto dance mix of Carry You Home and co-writing by Blacc and Stargate.
       
      Making the world their playground, the Never Growing Up video, follows a mischievous day in the life of children. The story sees the little actors planning their rebellion, and interrupting scenes of every day routine. Unwilling adults are depicted by carrying on their heavy work load, perfectly juxtaposed with the tracks invigorating pop-tinged melodies and Aloe’s earnest vocal performance. Eventually the adults join Mathieu Koss and give in to the playful nature of the song. They display an energising release in the form of complete chaos by throwing themselves into the important underlying message of the song, to never grow up.
       
      Mathieu Koss & Aloe Blacc – Never Growing Up is out now!

      🌟Concept

      The Town is a creative and colorful mock village to explore, co-create and interact with. It is full of spaces that parody our city lives, while also providing and exploring better alternatives for them.

      At different times of the festival people dress sup and get silly role-playing different characters and happenings of their own choosing. There is no pressure and it isn't about acting, but about letting go of taking ourselves seriously and embracing the absurdness of life.

      On the more serious side, the festival also explores how to live more sustainable lives. This melding of fun and community care is at the core ethos of the town.

      This year's 🌟 Theme will be Transport. The Town will be boasting a new train transport system, quirky bikes, modified grandma scooters and more., It will also explore Sustainable Transport and the pace and awareness at which we move through life with. Please carpool to the event and feel free to explore the theme in your own way 🚗
      ________________

      🌟Sustainability

      The Town is a family friendly event. It prides itself on self-care, land care, and community care, with a huge focus on connection instead of consumption. Each year we further explore how to be more sustainable, and encourage all to party in a way that is healthy and could literally keep being done forever. This is one of the most important things to keep our beautiful Town striving.

      By the end of the year, Licola is planning to be running on 90 percent Sustainable energy!

      This year we will be introducing a 'Safe Travel's program to create an even safer and more educated community.

      🌟Location

      In a beautiful valley on the Macalister, river lives a little town called Licola. It is owned by the Lions club and the Villages main goal is to run disability and disadvantaged youth camps all year round. The running of our festival helps support them do this great work.

      At this time of year, the deciduous trees are falling beautiful colors all over the site, the rainfall is low, and the grass is green. The site is one of the few Festivals that can boast lush green grass and no dust.

      Purple Disco Machine has unveiled the slick new visual for his hit single ‘Body Funk’.
       
      Directed by Nicole Alexander, the innovative video for ‘Body Funk’ features a gradually growing assortment of purple dancers coming together for a tightly choreographed dance-off in a futuristic warehouse.
       
      Following the release of the Carl Cox remix, also being released today is the remix from rising star and Sweat It Out label brother Dom Dolla - whose recent single ‘Take It’ has catapulted his success, hitting #1 on Beatport and topping the Shazam charts across Europe.
       
      Since the release of ‘Body Funk’, the single has garnered over 12 million streams and has been supported by the likes of Black Madonna, Jamie Jones and Fatboy Slim. The single has spent a second week #1 on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart and is continuing to get multiple plays across the R1 dance music family including Danny Howard, Pete Tong, MistaJam and Annie Mac - who crowned the track her ‘Hottest Record In The World’.
       
      With remixes under his belt for Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Weiss and Shakedown, Dresden-born producer Purple Disco Machine has become one of the decade’s most notable producers. 2018 saw him achieve an impressive feat on Beatport where four of his productions each secured a top 3 position.
       
      Having enjoyed a stellar 2018, Dresden born disco-house producer Purple Disco Machine is quickly becoming one of the most prolific and sought after producers in the industry. Having recently remixed Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Weiss and Jax Jones, he has also been named as Beatport’s #2 artist of all time.
       
      Complete with an compelling and inventive narrative, the video for ‘Body Funk’, plus remixes from Carl Cox and Dom Dolla are out now, with a Claptone remix due next Friday 12th April.
