Elusive musician/producer, DVRKO, today released his first music video accompanying debut single, “This is How,” featuring singer/songwriter, Sarah De Warren. The duo’s collaboration, an emotive, melodic house track inspired by personal experiences in seemingly inescapable toxic relationships, clocked more than a million global streams in its first month of release. With no signs of slowing down, DVRKO is gearing up to release his second original single, “Lights Up,” Monday, June 29th via L1N3 Records.
The attention-grabbing, first music video from DVRKO is set against the backdrop of an industrialized, dystopian future and conjures thematic elements of an unrecognizable earth, fire as a symbol of power, and the weaponization of water. DVRKO travels through time via a fiery, other-worldly portal in a DeLorean to infiltrate the “National Aerobics Championship.” DVRKO is seen spinning behind a DJ booth outfitted with vinyl records, retro mixing tech, and a proper turntable as competition participants take the stage, showing off their grooving dancing moves. However, the competition takes a sour turn when DVRKO’s “Face Phazer” electrocutes a sweaty finalist, knocking him out of the running. DVRKO’s DJ booth ascends into the air, propelled by fiery rockets, as he asserts his dominance over the dancefloor and his “puppets.” A breaking news alert flashes on-screen, and viewers are left with a cliff-hanger. There is an unknown menace on the loose wreaking havoc on desert mechanical soldiers with water balloons.
