It has been almost two years since we last heard a song from Frenchman, Martin Solveig, but he is back in 2015 with a vengeance. Teaming up with Miami duo, GTA, Solveig has unleashed an unstoppably groovy tune, aptly titled "Intoxicated." In addition to releasing "Intoxicated," the trio has unveiled a new music video to go along with the track that has Solveig's flare for the extraordinary. With its bright colors, clashing scenery -- which includes an old man licking an ice cream cone and polishing a car with rims that are too large and oddly dressed individuals showing off eccentric dance moves -- Solveig breaks the mold of Spinnin' Records videos which have in the past been pretty sappy love stories or cut and paste clips of live footage.
The new direction with "Intoxicated" follows the trend of electronic music today that is headed in a more groove and bass oriented sound. While the Grammys have never been a great barometer for trends in music, notably electronic music (Al Walser anybody), they noted the trend in deep house this year and chose almost entirely songs within that style. "Intoxicated" teases within that realm with its chugging bass line, blaring horns that make the tune impossible not to bob your head to, and catchy vocals to boot.
Martin Solveig has been very quiet of late. He has not released an album since his 2012 studio effort Smash that produced singles like "Hello," which received a lot of radio play, "The Night Out," "Ready To Go" and "Big In Japan." 2013 saw him release just one single, "Hey Now" alongside The Cataracs and Los Angeles rapper Kyle, but nothing was released in 2014.
He starts the year strong alongside GTA and hopefully we see more like this from both parties throughout the year. Watch the video below and purchase the track on Beatport.
