Emerging German-born, Italian-raised & now London-based producer Vonica has shared a new video for his single "Swing State", taken from his EP 'Sol De Nit' which is out now, via Lamela. Along with the news of the video, Vonica has announced three new supporting tour dates in London this month.
The video for "Swing State", was directed by London artist Beatrix Blaise, who says: "I wanted to make a video with high energy and surrealism matching the tunes wiggliness and pace. As soon as I found Ami and Janet it was a total clicking moment - they’re just so malleable I knew I could make images with them that blended strange//fun/energetic/statuesque/dystopian. I can’t seem to escape my desire for visual explosions, so this is just another mad addition to the stock."
Raised in Germany by Southern Italian parents, Vonica's original love for music started from a young age. His first encounter came before current project Vonica was created; the producer was previously in an indie band with his best friend. However, this came to an end when his friend & main colloborator left the country to become a priest in a faraway Italian Monastery.
When forming the tracks that make up his debut EP, Vonica was hit by a mix of excitement, surprise and alarm as this was the first time he had stepped outside his indie background and into the realm of electronic music. 'Sol De Nit', literally translates from Catalan as 'sun at night', which Vonica feels encapsulates the sprit of dance music.
The final touches to 'Sol De Nit' were done together with mixing engineer Marc Pell (Mount Kimbie, Michachu And The Shapes) & mastered by Shane McEnhill (DJ Shadow, Clean Bandit, Gold Panda, Luke Abbott).
