    Mathieu Koss and Aloe Blacc release vibrant new video

      Category: Music Review

    AY5I2774.thumb.jpg.566fd91ea0aa10323406c7b80ef0208d.jpgMathieu 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.

     

    Aloe-Blacc-AW-RY-BIS.thumb.jpg.ed909536e61d1cf7700e5e0a605ec4f9.jpgMaking 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!

      When ‘Lord of the Mics’ Jammer, was recently pushed over on stage, in a shock incident at Wiley’s long-standing event ‘Eskimo Dance,’ claims quickly started to arise that it was none other than Premiership football legend Ian Wright who was the culprit.  The claims lead to a social media frenzy with speculation as to why Ian Wright would have been so angered by Jammer and why he was even in attendance at a grime event in the first place.  With confused fans of both parties calling for answers to the many questions that were on everyone’s lips, Ian Wright took to his own Instagram to respond to the whole situation.  The incident then snowballed and the entire scenario made national news.  Setting off a wave of hilarious memes (that included Jammer moonwalking) the story was trending across social media over several days.  Read here: https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/767371/ian-wright-jammer-video-grime-mc-england-push-twitter-eskimo-dance-printworks.

      This event lead Jammer straight into the studio and the result is a track called, yes, you guessed it: 'Ian Wright’ and by the looks of things, Ian fully approves: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bvl10k7lYG0.  In fact, Ian is fully embracing it and is also rumoured to appear in the video, which launches today, alongside a number of celebrity guest cameos from the football and music world.
       
      Although born from a negative incident that would be pretty difficult for any artist to recover from, Jammer has been quick to show that there is no place for any bad vibes and has flipped the situation in to a pretty epic outcome that only he could do.  Naturally pulling in one of the world’s biggest Football legends and also a production courtesy of huge Australian producer: ‘What So Not,’ (who has previously worked with Flume, RL Grime, Dillon Francis and Skrillex), ‘Ian Wright’ is born as an electronic grime masterpiece doused in wonky baseline and topped with Jammer’s lyrical skill and wit. 
       
      Known for his humour and creative genius to his hundreds of thousands of followers, Jammer is one of the foundational lynchpins of the grime scene.  Part of ‘Boy Better Know’ alongside Skepta and also director of seminal brand Lord of the Mics, Jammer gets it in the back of the net as 'Ian Wright' scores with football and music fans, plus anyone that enjoys a bit of top entertainment!

      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.
