Music Video: Sound of Stereo ft. Teddiedrum – Origin (One on One)

850 470 Tim Gauthier

So when did Sofia Coppola start making short films with intense dance music as the soundtrack? Oh wait… she didn’t, Tom Willems did. It’s the new Sound of Stereo (ft. Teddiedrum) music video, “Origin (One on One)”! For four minutes and fifteen seconds, I found myself sitting on the edge of my couch with emotions running at a fever pitch, a burst of laughter, and one hell of a track to help me dance the anxiety of what I was seeing away. Seriously, this music video is like an entire movie crammed into four minutes and the song itself is intoxicating and peaceful at the same time, which is not easy to do; this track could be perfect for studying to or dancing your heart out to at the club.

Sound of Stereo, coming to a Sundance Film Festival near you!
Just kidding… but they will definitely be a permanent fixture in your ears with “Origin (One on One)”.

“Here’s an EP containing different sounds, each song sounding completely different from the last. I tired to tie together the elements of Drumstep, with House, Dutch, trance sounds, and heavy electro sounds at a slowed down tempo, creating moombahcore. I’ve included a few of my students to be part of this EP. Vocalists Pasha,Tess Marie, and producer Zoo Funktion. I’m excited to show you what I have put together!”

His latest release, “Last Night” which is out today on Dim Mak Records, isn’t too overpowering but has all the elements needed to get festival and club-goers bouncing. It’s the kind of track you’d want playing on a gorgeous Saturday evening, cruising around town with your favorite people, arms hanging out the window. It’s the kind of track that makes you feel rather infinite. “Last Night” will definitely be in the foreground of all your summer adventures, and you’ll find yourself clamoring for more of Marc Benjamin to caress your eardrums.

cuvm_KNKTreatMeRightCover_1-e1361326570656We all know Keys N Krates play by their own rules when creating their far from ordinary trap inspired beats. Well, we got to spend some rehearsal time with the trio to see just how they make the musical magic happen. The production of their latest single, “Treat Me Right” released on Dim Mak Records, started off as a jam session with Adam Tune on drums, David Matisse playing keys, and Jr. Flow mixing on the turntables. KNK likes to record their music like a traditional band, “jamming it out until something comes out” says Adam. Watch as they rehearse for their live performance of “Treat Me Right”.
