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.

2012 hit a sad note for Crookers fans when the duo announced that Bot would be going his separate way while Phra carried the Crookers name as a solo venture, and we’ve been waiting ever since to hear something from Bot‘s solo studio sessions. And it looks like the wait is finally over; on April 9th, devoted fans will finally get a sampling of what sort of saucy sounds Bot can make on his own as he releases “Vamos / Go Down” on Dim Mak Records.

This is huge, y’all! Once you’ve heard this track, you’ll be totally salivating for more of what this Italian mega-machine can do. The sounds of “Vamos / Go Down” are completely unlike anything we’ve heard before; it’s like the dance gods took extra special care in forming a talent as refined, energetic, and absolutely unique as Bot’s. The teaser video below is reminiscent of the Saved By the Bell opening credits, but with thunderous beats and super charged layers blazing into your ears over psychedelic visuals. With a video like this, and a breathtaking producer like Bot, this release is going to be one for the history books.
