JULIO BASHMORE has today released the video for LET ME BE YOUR WEAKNESS. Featuring vocals from BIXBY, the track is taken from BASHMORE’S acclaimed debut album KNOCKIN’ BOOTS, which was released last year through his own BROADWALK RECORDS.
The LET ME BE YOUR WEAKNESS video is directed by DANIEL BRERETON who says:
“The idea for the video came about from the songs title “Let Me Be Your Weakness”, I thought it would be interesting to make a video about peoples weaknesses. The strange things people do to escape from the dullness of day to day life. So I pitched it to Bashmore that we would find hobbyists and obsessives that partake in weird and wonderful past times. Matt was into it, so we then went about searching for a wide range of activities, from crab museums to the largest collection of milk bottles in the UK. Honestly, the search was very difficult for the producers, most of the time the weirder stuff that people were into they didn’t really want to shout about, as they often thought they could be exploited or ridiculed. But my idea was always to celebrate the eccentricities of people. I think we ended up with a really good bunch, including a viking, a furry, poodles, Irish dancers and cosplayers.”

Over a pair of 12” releases on his own Broadwalk Records, Julio Bashmore rounded off 2014 in prolific style with a succession of brilliant tracks (Simple Love, Rhythm of Auld, Knockin’ Boots, Petals) that provided an early taste of the sound of his forthcoming debut album. He now kicks of 2015 in similar style with another cut from the album. Featuring vocals from London based producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and funk colossus Bixby, ‘Kong’ is another fine example of the kind of emotive, powerful, timeless house music that Bashmore has become renowned for.
Meanwhile, Julio Bashmore’s Broadwalk Records continues to go from strength to strength. The label’s most recent release was Shanti Celeste’s acclaimed Universal Glow EP, which followed the success of releases by the likes of Velour, Maddslinky, Kowton, Funkieven and of course Bashmore himself.
