Watch the video to Darius' latest single 'EASE YOUR MIND'

Parisian producer Darius has shared the visuals for his latest single, 'EASE YOUR MIND', which features singer Devin Tracy.

The track is a funky cut, which is taken from his recently-dropped album 'OASIS'.

Directed by Darius and Louis Mallart, the video is a psychedelic and colour-infused affair to accompany the upbeat tune.

"This track is like the continuation of Equilibrium [a track on ‘OASIS’], where I looked for the danceable side, with retro and funky sounds, accompanied by a more pop voice,” explains Darius. “There was a long phase of research and many versions of demos to arrive at this final groove. For me it's the sound that encompasses all my biggest inspirations since my childhood.”

“And I was very lucky because I had to release it as an instrumental, and finally, the singer Devin Tracy came to me on Instagram. We talked, I sent him two demos and the next day he sent me back the song with his voice. When I listened to it, I cried with emotion. I was a little emotional and had been working all night. But it was literally perfect, I had nothing left to do, it was totally what I expected.”

“It was a total fluke, but Devin came along just in time. Especially since the title 'Ease Your Mind' has a very symbolic aspect. It feels really good to finally be at peace after finding the right person."

Darius' sound is an interpretation of French House, taking inspiration from the French Touch elements of Daft Punk, Cassius and Stardust whilst also drawing elements from funk, disco and R&B.

In his live performances, a new visual live show will also be presented to his audiences in upcoming dates, which include playing in the United States and a variety of locations in France.
