EDM DJ Producer, Aiobahn partnered up with singer-songwriter yanaginagi to produce the latest hit that’s sure to hit clubs worldwide!
Last week, Aiobahn, released RE: SEARCHLIGHT online and the music video is simply adorable! This song features singer-songwriter yanaginagi and is a major label release in Japan. Also, Wataru Uekusa is that animator behind this work. Hopefully a subtitled version will be coming, so fans world wide can enjoy the meaning behind this work.
Last month, this talent also released INTERNET YAMERO (March 17), and it received over 6.4 million views on YouTube within a month of its launch, and number of subscribers to his YouTube channel increased by 30,000 in a month.
This music video also includes Belle Humble’s interpretation of what West Side is about (and the New York vibes are present).
Ever since AmPm broke into the global dance music scene with their debut release, they have been riding high on countless waves of success. It started in 2017 with the single ‘Best Part of Us,’ and where they can be heard spread worldwide. Their next album is based on travelling the world, and where they’re heading is to the UK!
Their latest single, titled ‘West Side,’ is now available to stream, and it looks to take inspiration by the musical of a simliar name. This dance track is a collaboration with the UK-based singer and songwriter Belle Humble, and has everything that’s distinct to both talents. She also appears in the track’s official performance video. It is also based on Humble’s interpretation of West Side, and will leave a deep impression on viewers. Be sure to check out the video and soak in the lyrics along with the unmistakable vibe.
Born to Fly is Wang Yibo’s next film, and despite being pulled, early criticism and comparisons to Top Gun: Maverick, what’s planned and revealed so far looks terrific.
Just when fans of Wang Yibo can’t get enough of him in Hidden Blade, this heartthrob will soar into theatres again with Born to Fly (长空之王) come late April. It was originally slated for release last year in China during the month of September, but it was pulled. Not every media outlet said it was postponed.
A lot of reports suggested this work shares similar DNA with Top Gun: Maverick (including Hollywood Reporter). However, I suspect the producers pulled it to edit the story so that it’s not in verbatim. Oscar Wilde said, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness,” and I have no problems with this direction.
I’m sure the digital special effects were an enormous concern too. According to Radii.co, the feature was delayed to fix those sequences. That is, the producers want those aerial moments look as authentic as possible. This sequences we’re shown shows the limits China’s latest technological advance can soar, and yes, I have Van Halen’s song “Dreams” playing in my head when watching the movie trailer.
