Australian producer Beni (Riot in Belgium, the Bang Gang Deejays) and director Cedric Blaisbois today bring us not only a music video, but a story of triumph. A mini-documentary, “It’s a Bubble” was inspired by one fan’s love, Bubble J, and his partner-in-dance Z-Tamin. Together, they’re the reigning queens of Bubble Crew, and the pair behind a sort of dance exclamation point consisting of an easy-to-learn (and way fun to use as a non sequitur) hand choreography called “The Bubble,” which quickly gained traction because, well, just look at them go. J and Z are very particular about their moves, as they should be — their stage is a Parisian vogue house, sort of a high court for the professionally fabulous. Watch as they assemble their team and prepare to compete … for their lives (practically).
Featuring guest appearances from Copenhagen producer Turbotito and vocals from the enigmatic Sean deLear (pronounced “Chandelier”), the song is like a house froth injection filled with muffled cowbell, titular pops, epic sax and deeply-assured pronouncements from its vocalist: “It’s a bubble. You can see everyone in the bubble. So don’t worry.” The song comes from Beni’s forthcoming House of Beni, a full-length that promises more guests and get-step than maybe we’re ready for. Bubble J is certainly ready, though.
The “It’s a Bubble” single is out August 2 on Modular.
