Freedust is a Barcelona-based project led by the Italian producer, Daniele Carmosino. Not too long ago, the collective released a sensational music video for their “Heat” single.
Freedust – “Heat” music video
‘Heat’ is the perfect remedy to whisk away any lingering winter blues. Harking back to simpler times with its vintage-inspired sound and the cover art depicting an analog camera on the seashore, you can almost feel the sand between your toes.
Press play and you’ll soon realize it’s literally impossible not to tap your feet in time with this modern take on rhythm n blues and soul. But you’re in good company, the video showcases the moves and choreography of up-and-coming young dancers from across the globe, bringing home the universal appeal of Freedust‘s sound. Bodies from India, Nigeria, Colombia, Jamaica, Vietnam, Morocco, and Sri Lanka groove together in styles such as hip-hop, Bollywood, b-boying, classical, and modern interpretive.
Daniele Carmosino conjures up the Freedust magic by layering pop, jazz, and soul elements on top of trip-hop and electronic influences – recalling St. Germain, Dee-Lite, and Quantic – while breezy, lighthearted female vocals round out the trademark feel-good vibe. It all makes for a track with a distinctly neo-soul sound in the vein of alternative R&B divas like Janell Monae, M.I.A., Nikki Costa, and Solange.
‘Heat’ at once evokes memories of happy-go-lucky sunny days while looking forward to a carefree summer, free of pandemic woes. The song, which will resonate well with fans of Pepa Knight, Pure Topic, and Moodssupply, possesses funky groove-laden instrumentation bursting with pop-soul, dance, and alternative R&B flavors. Furthermore, “Heat” is the title track of Freedust’s latest four-track EP.
Freedust became airborne when Daniele Carmosino met singer Lisa Widmark among the creaking Hammonds and weather-beaten Moogs of an antique music equipment store in 2015. With more than just musical influences in common, the pair shared a feel for the music they wanted to create. Shortly afterward, they realized their vision in Daniele’s home studio. There, they combined their initial inspiration from Swing music of the 1930s and ‘40s. Later, they filtered through their love of pop, jazz, electronica, and vintage gear to create something new yet familiarly timeless. The duo was soon joined by guest singer Sarina Leah from London. The geographical influences of all three Freedusters (Italy, Sweden, UK) combined to form their singular sound.
