Spanish producer Ed Is Dead has released a video for his new single 'Praise', following the release of his debut album 'Change' out earlier this summer on Minifunk and Petite Mort.
The video, directed by Karlos Sanz, features a church setting with a female guest vocalist in a red dress and feathered headpiece which occasionally cuts to a more revealing black outfit, as well as black and white sound system imagery. There's a repetitive synth chime throughout that enhances the eerie, omniprescent tone, alongside a cybernetic tremor and rhythmic gospel-like harmonies.
'I love music but I hate genres', says Ed, on the lack of genre identity in his songs. 'I wanted to create a mix of organic and electronic music. There are a lot of underground influences from techno, house, drum n bass, but also guitars, percussions, rock, pop and a delicate and careful treatment on all the vocals.' Ed Is Dead is only the latest monica of Edu, who has been on the scene for 15 years becoming a chart sensation and multiple award nominee in his home nation.
