Originating from Hawaii, upcoming producer Mahalo now resides in Southern California. With his recent releases, the producer is setting himself a strong foundation for a blossoming career in the electronic scene. Mahalo pioneers an inviting sound, that dips house music in varying styles through dark textures to nostalgic sweetness. Meaning "Thanks" in the native tongue of Hawaii, we can show gratitude to this producer for developing staple sounds to accompany the remaining summer days. If you haven't caught up with his latest release "Heartbeat", it's certainly worth checking out. In the track, Mahalo fosters an enticing integration of cryptic plucking synths and infectious grooves. The deep bass-lines and hazy vocals are the perfect pairing to a chilled summer night or to bump on the dance floor. Today on EARMILK, we're excited to present to you the new music video for Mahalo's "Heartbeat".
The video directed by VIDKID is an ominous work of art that syncs together blending bodies, urban spaces and coastal landscapes. Following a sinister shadowed character, the music video mysteriously taps into our own alter-egos, embracing dance as a innate response to music. It's unclear whether the cryptic individuals are an extension of self, in control of the "humans" or dancing with them in coexistence. This conceptual notion found in the video accurately pairs the track, inviting irony to instill curiosity within listeners and viewers.
