Newly-minted producer Modapit is gearing up to release their debut album and is giving listeners a first taste today with lead single, “Dancing“. The new track effortlessly blends pop euphoria with driving deep house grooves and techno synths, immersing listeners in Modapit’s characteristic pop-electronic catharsis. Listen to the song now below.
“Dancing” is accompanied by a stunning music video directed by David Borges with cinematography from Carlos Perez. The first part of a three part short film, the “Dancing” music video follows a woman navigating her way through a troubling past trauma. The video supplements its spell-binding camerawork with improvised dance choreography, a synthesis that perfectly complements the track’s moody yet triumphant tone.
David Borges said of the video, “The music video for ‘Dancing’ is about a person dealing with grief, and her doing one of the things she loves the most to help her cope with the loss. At the same time it continues the story of Modapit. Something is happening around the world, and someone close to our character was taken, she came to Modapit for answers, and that’s where our story ends so far.”
Modapit’s upcoming full-length project promises to further spotlight the producer’s uplifting, goth-techno aura. By embracing the beauty of creative partnership, the LP will reflect the deeply collaborative tenets of the Modapit brand. Filmmakers David Borges and Carlos Perez have helped build out the Modapit universe, developing a stark visual aesthetic surrounding the producer’s mind-melding dance sonics. All together, they’ve crafted a funeral-rave vibe – a defining artistic ethos representing Modapit’s out-of-the-box approach and propensity for creating unlikely pairs.
Anonymity has long been an intriguing element of electronic music culture, but few artists have pushed the boundaries quite like Modapit – an enigmatic artist emerging from the shadows of underground dance music. Shrouded in their signature fishnet veil, Modapit’s secrecy allows listeners to look beyond the artist and directly at what the artist wants to present: the juxtaposition between a gothic, edgy streetwear look and euphoric, swirling pop-electronic sounds. By removing the ‘ego’ of the artist, fans fully immerse themselves into Modapit’s disparate, fashion-forward multiverse.
