Last month (August 23rd) Canadian producer Rob Bakker aka NICOLAAS, the former half of the rap duo Phocus and along with retired Muneshine pseudonym released an official video for his latest single ‘Real Escape’. It’s the first video under this moniker and its couple of months after releasing the single ‘No Stranger Things’ featuring vocalist Lucy Mason. The pace of the track picks up more compared to the less funky and more bright sounds and dreamy vocals of the aforementioned single.
When speaking about the music video, NICOLAAS explained, “I’ve been fascinated with dance videos lately, and since shifting gears with this new project I’ve been looking for a way to incorporate dance into the visual identity. Real Escape just felt like the perfect track to do this. I reached out to Martin at R&F with very broad strokes of an idea, and he came back overnight with a fully flushed-out, perfectly tailored concept. He instantly thought of J. Style and showed me some of his videos. It was obvious he embodied the necessary ‘je ne sais quoi’ to carry the concept, and JB and the rest of the production team took all of these pieces and made this moment into something memorable. I hope you enjoy it!”
