Fresh off the back of a rigorous festival run, Felix Jaehn presents the vibrant music video for his latest single ‘Hot2Touch’ with Hight and Alex Aiono.
With a real upbeat energy, the perfectly routined choreography of the piece adds to underpinned themes of freedom and happiness with quick cuts of rooftop parties and summer vibes present throughout. A representation of youth life, the focus on friendship witnessed in the video marks a perfect accompaniment for the hugely infectious and uplifting track itself.
Billboard says, “The euphoric, punchy song couldn’t provide a better party soundtrack, with its bouncy, jazz-tinged undertones and brassy production.”
Shot in London, the video for ‘Hot2Touch‘ is directed by Carly Cussen. The UK director is known for visually heightening artists’ performances through crisp cinematography and energetic dance routines. Filmed in the east end of the capital the production focuses on flashy neon colors and synchronized choreography that spotlights all three artists involved on the record.

Over 140,000 people have descended upon Belgium for the second weekend of Tomorrowland, which is arguably the most notorious music festival in the electronic music world.
Meanwhile, back in America we have received word that Tomorrowland’s sister festival in the US, Tomorrowworld, may be back.
According to a local publication in Belgium, De Tijd, communication with Tomorrowworld’s initial US promoter LiveStyle are back up and running for a 2018 version of the festival. Tomorrrowland’s spokesperson Debby Wilmsen commented on the progress, saying:
“The relations between SFX and Tomorrowland were acidified, but now that new people are in control of the current LiveStyle, there is a new approach.”
Time will tell what comes out of LiveStyle and Tomorrowworld’s conversations, but the electronic community would certainly be thrilled with the return of the US version of the festival.
