Django Django reveal video for synth-heavy single ‘Slipstream’, announce tour dates

Following the release of their exceptional new album, Off Planet, Django Django have revealed a new video for the trance-inducing dance anthem, ‘Slipstream’.

The fast-paced techno of ‘Slipstream’s humming beat, and addictive synth tones are accompanied in the new video by Tron-esque flashing lights and neon scenery, while lead singer Vincent Neff journeys through a sonic landscape that visualises Django Django’s unparalleled musical electronica.

Speaking of the video, the band said: “The lyrics are a bit of an ode to watching the Tour de France with Pete Shelley’s signature track playing as a kid. We thought it would be fun to build upon that with the video, which sees Vinny being put through his paces, ramping up in speed until he breaks beyond reality”.

Director Daniel Nellis continues: “In ‘Slipstream’ we join Vinny on his wayward journey through a twilight town. In this parallel universe characters are stuck in motion forever, their soundtrack cosmically transmitted between them, leaving each other in a state of ecstasy. Vinny’s search for his non-existent destination leaves him in ever increasing kinetic states of blissful speed fed highs, leaving the others in his world forever and ever in his Slipstream.”

The video’s unveiling arrives just after the announcement of a new headline UK and European tour, which includes a show at London’s KOKO on 14th December.

Off Planet, the band’s fifth full-length studio album, is out now via Because Music (stream / purchase it here.) Released in four parts, each representing a different “planet”, Off Planet is the biggest, boldest, and most varied statement the band have made, with a cavalcade of mainstream and underground stars – Self Esteem, Jack Peñate, Stealing Sheep, Toya Delazy and many more, all of them either friends of the band or personally sought out by Dave – bringing entirely new creative angles into play. Off Planet was conceptualised by Django Django co-founder and producer Dave Maclean as “a way to go beyond”, to bring new voices, new rhythms, new experimentation into play, and effectively to deconstruct the band’s identity. From bluesy pop and Middle Eastern cabaret goth to Afro acid and piano rave, to call it kaleidoscopic is putting it mildly. Despite at times not sounding like anything on their previous releases, Off Planet is very much still recognisably Django Django

The album was described by Uncut (8/10) as “their most accomplished and ambitious record to date”, by The Arts Desk (4*) as “sprawling, eclectic and ear-pleasing” and Record Collector (4*) as “a rewarding listen”. 

Off Planet features multiple standout singles including the BBC Radio 6 Music A-Listed 90s dance-pop explosion, “Complete Me” ft. Self Esteem, the genre-bending “No Time” ft. Jack Peñate, the futuristic club track “Don’t Touch That Dial” ft. Yuuko plus “Slipstream”.

Caught in the glow of the spotlight, Dance-pop duo Split Kick have stuck their hands in the hat and pulled out a retro number titled ‘Fantasy’, out now via Love Swing Records. Comprised of Canadian musician Andrew Corbin and Miami native Pete Neonakis, the pair bring their love of high-energy music to their latest pumping dance track.

‘Fantasy’ is a throwback record that brings to mind the two dominant golden eras of dance music. Yes, that’s right. The ‘70s and ‘80s are back, baby, with Split Kick taking the lead. In it, there’s a bit of everything: smooth Disco flavour here with a touch of the classic House there. A solid four-on-the-floor kick and snare combo establishes the track’s foundation, while a neon-bright vocal hook illuminates the upper layers of the track.

Describing their intentions for the track, the duo said: “We wanted to create a minimalistic tune that pumps hard for the DJ’s, while also adding something unique and interesting with the vocals. Fantasy feels like that classic late night banger that gets you through to your second wind.”

French electronic music producer PLEEG has shared his latest offering, a single titled ‘Still Friends’, with the help of his label Quality Goods Records. From lush breakdowns to modulated drops, ‘Still Friends’ epitomises PLEEG’s style.

Stream / Download: PLEEG – ‘Still Friends’

Like a thousand-piece puzzle, the single is comprised of many loose elements, brought into harmony by the producer’s heightened sense of song arrangement. When one part falls away, another jumps in to fill its place, excluding, of course, the timed moments of silence that make serve the song as much, if not more, than the notes themselves.

PLEEG is increasingly being mentioned in the press, having recently gained the support of the recognised publication Run The Trap, which had nothing but good things to say about his latest song. “The stunning record is nothing short of a vibrant and heartfelt anthem that comes across as unpredictable yet warm and inviting at the same time,” they said, complimenting the artist.
