Adana Twins team up with L.A. director Katja Deferkiel to produce an unforgettably cinematic music video for their latest single ‘Relentless’, featuring vocals from WhoMadeWho’s Jeppe Kjellberg.
Katja captures the Mojave Desert in epic style, using wide camera shots and visual effects for a vivid and striking music video that adds a whole new dimension to ‘Relentless’.
‘Relentless’ features brooding synths and percussion next to Jeppe’s heart-felt performance – something that Katja embraced to create the music video:
“I decided to shoot in a remote part of the Mojave Desert, on ancient Indian Land with Volcanoes, sheer endless roads and dramatic light because this landscape for me reflects the feeling of longing and loneliness I hear in the song”.
German born but based in Los Angeles, Katia Deferkiel’s vivid cinematography perfectly combines with Adana Twin’s sultry sound and Jeppe’s commanding vocal performance to create a mesmerizing package that is primed for success not just on the dance floor but beyond too.
On teaming up with Jeppe Kjellberg and Katia Deferkiel, Adana Twins comment:
“Working with Jeppe Kjellberg from WhoMadeWho was a pretty cool experience! His voice is simply amazing and we’re more than happy. It was a lucky coincidence that our good friend and director Katja Federkiel from Los Angeles loved the song as much as we do!”
Here’s the new video from Hamburg’s Adana Twins! The pair’s latest offering, Bleeding (feat. Human Life) includes “sleek beats, clever vocal snippets from LA-based act Human Life and an intricate synth line. A driving beat builds intensely towards the middle of the song before gradually easing up towards the end. The structure style is unexpected, making this track a heavy hitter for a packed, sweaty dance floor”. With the additional remix pack including reworks by Mark E (Spectral) and The/Das (Life&Death), we now have an official video directed by Maud Dupuy and presented by Exploited Records. See below the video for this highly addictive song!
The duo are made up of Friso and Take It Easy, who despite the collective name aren’t related at all, but their relationship with music is what keeps them united. It was their huge releases on Exploited Everyday andStrange that catapulted them into the spotlight in 2012. Since then they have loyally continued to churn out tunes on the imprint, gathering support from all across the board. Furthermore, Exploited just announced a new single by Adana Twins entitled Heroe which will be released in the middle of September and features remixes from SevenDoors, Krankbrother and Dino Lenny.
“2014 was a definitely a huge year for dance music, with many up and coming artists being thrown into the lifestyle of hectic partying and relentless touring schedules. This also means that those who exploded onto the scene prior are no longer the new kids on the block. A few years is a long time in the life of a DJ, and the first few years are often the maddest.
The Adana Twins are a perfect example of one of these artists, having emerged onto the scene in 2012 with releases such as ‘Everyday’ and ‘Strange’, from the off it was clear that they had everybody’s undivided attention.” (Pulse Radio)
With DJ names like Take It Easy and Friso, it’s probably to be presumed that German duo Adana Twins don’t take themselves too seriously. That tongue in cheek attitude could be heard on their first productions and remixes. It’s now almost almost three years later and the Twins’ music vision is constantly developing.
After their highly anticipated release ’Drive feat. Khan’ from 2014 the 2 boys from Hamburg are finally back on Exploited. ‘Bleeding‘ features vocal snippets from LA based Human Life. This anthem has been causing massive feedback in their DJ-Sets so far. Remixes from Kenny Larkin, The/Das (Life&Death/Krakatau) and Mark E (Spectral Sound/Merc) to follow.
