Beta Frontiers Delivers Pure Disco-Pop Bliss on ‘Still Love': Video Premiere
Beta Frontiers (a.k.a. producer Michael Butler) teams up with Vancouver duo HUMANS on the groovy “Still Love,” the second single off the artist’s new EP, Heights.
Premiering exclusively on PopCrush, the video for “Still Love” provides a heaping dose of dreamy discotheque fantasy, with youthful nightclub patrons dancing blissfully amid the neon lights, glitter and lasers as Butler soundtracks the synthy, disco-hued dance party from his computer.
“I collaborated on this song with Robbie Slade from Humans, with us going back and forth on a beat that he wrote vocals over, which I then reconfigured to suit the mood of what he’d contributed. We tried to convey the feeling of when you want someone, and it doesn’t matter if they want you back or not, it just feels good to want them,” Butler tells us of the throbbing EDM track.
“The video for the most part follows the story laid out in the lyrics, but we were also trying to reflect the introverted nature of a lot of producers. We wanted to contrast the solitary restlessness that gives rise to these party tracks, with the party’s the soundtrack. As a producer you make these songs for people to have a good time to, but most of your time is spent alone in front of a laptop. That’s your party,” he adds.
