It doesn't get much better than to be 22-years-old, have an incredible head of hair and -- oh yeah -- be an internationally-touring DJ. Aussie producer Thomas Jack is living just that life, as one of the buzziest new editions to the electro scene. He's also credited with discovering festival favorite Kygo and is mentored by legendary DJ Pete Tong. Not bad company, right?
We're excited to be premiering the video for "Rivers," Jack's first original mix in over a year, out now via Tong's FFRR Records, featuring vocals by Jack McManus and Tim Woodcock and co-produced by German producer JUNKX. The softly-lit video features a good-looking couple being good-looking while on an island vacation -- the perfect accompaniment to Jack's signature 'Tropical House' beats. There's Vespa riding, cliff-jumping, sightseeing -- all the requisite holiday stuff you wish you were doing instead of sitting at your office computer. But there's trouble in paradise as all of a sudden the idyllic vacation gets a little rocky. "I wanted the video to show how there are many sides to a person and they can change at any moment," Jack tells us about the concept for the clip. The song tries to capture "a hopeful/happy vibe," he says, but "it's also this intricate message about relationships between different people in different places in their lives and how they can intertwine and work out...or not!"
We won't spoil the ending of this particular story but we will say that these genetically blessed two are probably gonna be alright with whatever happens in the end. Give it a watch above.
