Bruce Loko remixes Live Better, the Capitec Bank soundtrack
There has been a real online buzz about the Capitec bank campaign involving artists Zaki Ibrahim, Mike Kelly, Bruce Loko and Stab Virus.
Not sure what we’re talking about?
Here’s a quick rundown.
Instead of simply looking for some generic music to fit their latest campaign, Capitec bank partnered with Red Bull Studio Cape Town and the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival to create a 100% original signature song called Live Better.
This song was penned by Zaki Ibrahim and produced by Mike Kelly. You can watch the video on the creation of the original song here.
Furthermore they decided to empower some very fine underground producer talent to remix the song and feature each of these respective artists in short documentaries of their own.
The result; a win / win for everybody involved.
Capitec get to do some good by investing time and money in a campaign that will benefit all the artists involved and hopefully at the same time convince Generation-Z that not ALL banks are made up of stuffy old bean counters.
Red Bull Studio in Cape Town (and globally) of course have been consistent advocators of electronic dance music and their relationship with the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival (CTEMF) has forged this cool opportunity to press forward and help promote the less obvious and less high profile (but equally good and sometimes even better) underground artists.
Enter Stab Virus and Bruce Loko; both are fairly underground in the greater scheme of things but have been making serious head way over the past year or two in their respective dance music scenes/genres.
Last week we featured the Live Better Stab Virus remix.
This week we’ve decided to give the Bruce Loko remix to Live Better a good listen.
Capitec Bank – Live Better (Bruce Loko Remix)
Bruce Loko was one of the highlights at CTEMF 2017. His sound is an underground mix of deep house and electronica and two of this latest tracks can be heard on Africa Gets Physical mixed by Ryan Murgatroyd released on the acclaimed Get Physical imprint.
This is not ‘made-for-radio’ deep house; Bruce Loko writes deep, moody music with cinematic soundscapes, unconventional sound design and real emotion, designed for the dancefloor.
His rendition of Live Better perfectly displays why Loko is one of our South African producers to keep a watch out for.
