Solomun is a DJ icon and Jamie Foxx is an Oscar-winning actor who played Ray Charles among his many Hollywood roles.
For his latest release, Solomun teams up with the incredible multi-hyphenate Jamie Foxx on the new track ‘Ocean’, a deep and emotive track in which Solomun lays down solid foundations in the production, and Jamie’s voice does the rest.
The two met in Los Angeles. Solomun sent Foxx an instrumental he’d been working on for a while, Foxx recorded the vocals and again Solomun took it from there.
One might call the encounter of Solomun and Foxx serendipitous: The videos that are released in the realm of “Nobody Is Not Loved” all share a specific idea – music can transcend people in moments when they are one with music and completely let go – a phenomenon that Solomun calls “Momentum”.
Pixar’s latest animated movie “Soul” – in which Jamie Foxx voices the lead – has a very similar idea. They coined the term “Zone”, a place within the non-living sphere where those go, who completely immerse themselves with a passionate activity, like losing yourself in music.
Along with the original track comes a remix by Moodyman, who had so much fun with the project that he brought Amp Fiddler on board, and together they created an eclectic reinterpretation of the track, which is almost 8 minutes long.
