BOTH share the video for current single ‘Straight Outta Line’. View it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnpfCGxl8BE. Directed by award winning London filmmaker, Lucy Tcherniak and featuring actor, Gabe Nevins, of Gus Van Sant’s ‘Paranoid Park’ fame. Lucy explains, “I’d seen photographer Mike Brodie’s photography book ‘A Period of Juvenile Prosperity’ a while back and it had really stayed with me. Inspired by these images, for Straight Outta line, I wanted to paint a portrait of a group of characters that live on the road; hitch-hiking, train-hopping and travelling freely across the states with barely a dime to their name. It was great working with Johnny Ortiz, Rhian Rees and of course Gabe Nevins; who since starring in Gus Van Sant’s Paranoid Park, has experienced quite a precarious life, which at times included living on the road himself.”
Hailing from Belgium and France and originally artists in their own right, production duo, BOTH have joined forces to whet club goer’s fast growing appetite for a new summer club anthem.
As with all great partnerships, BOTH’s connection was born through similar tastes. Taking influences from nu soul, classic house, funk and the work of legendary producers like Roger Sanchez and Eric Morillo, it’s clear on this single ‘Straight Outta Line’, that BOTH’s ambition to push the boundaries of their collaboration is bearing intriguing musical fruit.
Also not being satisfied with creating purely instrumental work has seen the guys collaborate with a special Northern Soul genius who’s sublime vocals on ‘Straight Outta Line’ adds more colour and feeling to an already exciting track.
BOTH explain, “This is a song about redemption and solidarity. It is about community and the strength of the human spirit. The vocals compliment this perfectly and this is a journey we thoroughly enjoyed.”
The remix comes courtesy of rising Polish star, P.A.F.F, who gives the original track a deep, tech house reworking destined for late night dancefloor rotation.
‘Straight Outta Line’ looks certain to be one of this year’s new discoveries and is released on 28th July via [PIAS] Recordings.
