new playone single for the us market - "We can take this party" feat. barbara tucker & Qboogie

When the Croatian production team PlayOne announced the opening of a studio in Las Vegas and turning their focus to the US market few months ago, these boys weren't joking. Recently Darko Juranović D'Knock and DJ Fresh Jay finalized the project they have been working on diligently: they have finished the single "We Can Take This Party" with the queen of House Music - Barbara Tucker and Quinta Young - QBoogie, as well as the video for the upcoming hit. Their long-term partner Rei Noel aka Zvonimir Dusper - Dus  also joined them in this project, where he is working on the composition and the production of the songs.
Their promotional target is the USA, or to be more specific, the cities of Las Vegas and New York - hometown of Barbara and Quinta Young. Moreover, besides Zagreb, some of the footage for the video was shot in NYC.

"We Can Take This Party" video hosts the fantastic dance group "Atomic Dance Factory" reviving the indigenous image of the House sound combined with elements of Hip Hop and Funk, thanks to their virtuous choreographies and break battles.

The ultimate goal of the comprehensive project are several releases that PlayOne, Barbara and Quinta are planning to record, along the performance shows featuring Barbara's friends, the world-renowned artists such as Jocelyn Brown, Crystal Waters and the legendary Robin S. ("Show Me Love"). As the icing on the cake PlayOne will be playing at the Miami Winter Conference at Barbara Tucker's special event night, where the biggest Divas of Soul and House Music will perform some of their greatest hits.

 

 

IDM music licensed a song for Tarantino's "Django Unchained"

After successful collaborations on "Kill Bill 1&2", "Grindhouse" and "Inglorious Basterds", IDM Music teamed up with Quentin Tarantino's music supervision crew once again and licensed another piece of art for his latest long-awaited hit: "Django Unchained".

Tarantino's 8th movie starring Jamie Foxx, Cristoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson is considered one of his best movies ever (and one of the best movies ever), with 5 nominations for this year's Oscar already down. "Django Unchained" has received nominations for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Editing and Best Supporting Actor of the Year, while it already won 2 Golden Globes for Best Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay of the Year along the AFI award for the Movie of the Year and long list of various movie festivals nominations and awards.

Quentin Tarantino has already been known for his love for Western Spaghetti films and music, so the choice of the song "Trinity: Titoli" from 1970's spaghetti western movie "They Call Me Trinity" (starring Terrence Hill and Bud Spencer), couldn't fit better into the western film story of American slavery, and human fight for freedom. The song "Trinity: Titoli" was written by Franco Micalizzi and Lally Stott, and published by Star S.r.l. & West Edizioni Musicali, Italy.
The title and setting of the film was inspired by the 1960s spaghetti western Django with the original Django actor Franco Nero having a small role in the film. What is also interesting is that many roles were written for the specific actors with them in mind.

"Django Unchained" is in cinemas across the globe, so if you still haven't seen it, don't miss a chance to see a movie that already entered the annals of the cinematography history. IDM Music is very proud to be a part of the story.
