Manchester favourites Solardo and prolific producer Eli Brownhave released the official video for their huge dancefloor number ‘XTC’.
The engrossing visuals for ‘XTC’ depict two ravers dancing solitarily in the countryside whilst being leered at by a seriously creepy rave voyeur. The video’s rave energy and peculiar suspense proves an ideal pairing for the track’s energetic, feel-good vibe and now-legendary “shining in the ecstasy”vocal.
Firmly cemented as one of the songs of summer 2019, ‘XTC’ has so far amassed 7.5 million combined streams and reached #7 in the iTunes Dance Chart. It also received support fromAnnie Mac on BBC Radio 1 as well as a selection of the hottest club DJs, includingCamelPhat, Denis Sulta,Carl Cox,Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Richy Ahmedand Nic Fanciulli.
The track marked Solardo’s first release since ‘Tango Wango’, a slick tropical release that dropped back in February. The boys also recently completed theirBODYWORKS residency, a weekly party alongside CamelPhat andFISHER at Hi Ibiza. Looking ahead, they will perform atAmsterdam Dance Event and with Fatboy Slim at Circus in Liverpool before the end of the month.
Meanwhile 2019 has proven to be Eli Brown’smost prolific year yet, with a flurry of tracks and remixes released on the likes ofLee Foss’ Repopulate Mars, Solardo’s Solä and Adam Beyer’s Truesoul and forthcoming releases onAlan Fitzpatrick’s We Are The Brave. Collaborating with some of the biggest names in the underground includingLee Foss, Anabel Englund, Sonny Fodera andSkream, the revered producer has quickly built a reputation as an artist synonymous with a killer bassline.
Equal parts captivating and disturbing, the official video for ‘XTC’ is one that leaves a lasting impression – much like the track itself.
