Rising French artist Plastic Toy and revered DJ/producer and label boss DJ Snake showcase the official music video for brand-new debut single ‘Try Me’, a slick mid-tempo production out on DJ Snake’s Premiere Classe label. The official music video is shot by Bali based creative content agency Moonkey Creative - who has previously produced content for Mercer, Potato Head and Socialister. With the video following the melodic chill-wave symphony of the track, the cinematic video shows a surreal version of a relationship cycle that takes place through the perspectives of two toy dolls. From the pair's initial meeting to the depiction of date nights and other more intimate scenarios, we are left with the couple showing consideration over another pill before the male character is left alone.
Plastic Toy explains: “With the music video for "Try Me", we wanted to tell a story that would reflect the emotional feeling of the track. The reason why Moonkey chose to tell it with toys is kind of obvious, but they managed to give them life and the emotions we were looking for, the end scene of the birds flying in the sky is probably my favorite part.” Growing up in the suburbs of Paris, Plastic Toy’s fascination with music was kick-started when learning the drums at the age of 14. The French producer soon started to create his own electronic sounds, using a keyboard and the first software demo he found to craft his colourful and melodic style.
With the producer’s powerful signature sound made up of rhythmic tones with a contemporary twist; it was this particular attribute which caught the ear of Grammy-nominated DJ and producer DJ Snake. Amassing over 13 billion streams on his back-catalogue of hits - including collaborations with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Cardi B, Major Lazer and many more - Parisian producer DJ Snake has made a name as one of the most in-demand artists in the world, with ‘Try Me’ marking his first release on the Premiere Classe label. The release follows a string of recent releases on the imprint from artists such as Chace and ‘Pardon My French’ superstar Mercer.
Preceding DJ Snake’s headline performance on the outside stage at Coachella next month, the official music video for ‘Try Me’ was released on Tuesday April 2nd.
Those of you who have been around from the 1960's through the 1990's will remember the vibrant live music scene in almost every starred hotel in India. Those were the days when you walked into a nightclub like 'Rendezvous' at The Taj Mahal hotel and 'Supper Club' at the Oberoi Sheraton in Mumbai to see curtains going up on a band that was the prime focus of these outlets. Every seat in these restaurants allowed an unobstructed view of the band that performed every night on resident contracts. Today all this has disappeared thanks to some ridiculously high entertainment taxes on live music. Today, non off these hotels have complete bands playing save for a few that feature small duos or solo singers. The Lodhi in New Delhi, recently listed among the world's best hotels, decided to step in and rewind to the good old days. They got Goa's premier jazz quartet 'Jazz Junction' to move to Delhi on a resident contract and the decision has paid off in terms of footfalls generated by the band. Jazz Junction featuring singer Daniella Rodrigues, pianist Tony Dias,
bassist Colin D'Cruz and drummer Angelo Colasco began playing at The Lodhi in June 2018. Four months into the contract the band generated a sizeable following, with quite a few high profile guests choosing to celebrate their special occasion at the Elan bar where the band performs. Against all odds the rewind option proved to be a huge success and hopefully other properties around the country takes the cue to trigger a whole new revival of live music.
