Strobelite – the euphoric dance track from chart topping album Humanz – is the new video from Gorillaz.
Directed by Stoke native and Murdoc Niccals’ acolyte Raoul Skinbeck, the Strobelite video features Peven Everett along with band members 2D, Noodle, Murdoc and Russel Hobbs smashing it on a night out at an infamous London hotspot.
Skinbeck, a longtime acquaintance of Niccals, has a long and illustrious career in producing TV ads for a local double glazing company based in Stoke on Trent and Murdoc thought he’d be rather good at making pop videos.
A remix of Strobelite by producer wunderkind Kaytranada is set to land on Friday 18th.
Also coming in time for Notting Hill Carnival is a dancehall remix of Saturnz Barz by Cadenza, featuring all new verses from Mad Cobra, Assassin, Kila P and Teddy Bruckshot in addition to original vocals by Popcaan and Damon Albarn.
Peven Everett is a rare artist of many talents whose work alternately covers the territories of house, R&B, jazz and hip-hop. Te multi-instrumentalist has played trumpet on a handful of jazz recordings (including Curtis Lundy’s Against All Odds) and has become a prominent figure in Chicago’s house, soul and R&B communities. He has released seven solo albums to date and is touring Australia in early September for Red Bull Music Academy Weekender.
I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
