As a beat making wonder-child, Jacob Plant has a progressive attitude towards his productions. Something which has given him the ability to branch out of genre boundaries. Responsible for Fly Eye Records’ biggest non Calvin Harris release, ‘All Night’ featuring Tujamo, he has support from the likes of Pete Tong, Zane Lowe and Danny Howard.
He was handpicked to craft remixes for artists such as Tinie Tempah and Example. And as a result, Plant’s productions have catapulted across international airwaves and allowed him to perform in front of thousands. Appearances have been at Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds, HARD Day of the Dead, and even Wireless Festival.‘About You’, featuring Maxine, is taken from Jacob’s debut album set for release early 2018. Maxine is signed to the management company credited for Lana Del Rey, Dual Lipa and Charlotte OC’s success.
The visually stunning music video for ‘About You’ has now been unveiled. Shot over the course of a night, it was directed by Sleepy Puppies. Through crisp cinematography and energetic freestyle dance routines, the production focuses on sparkling silver colours as a young man attempts to find the cause of the plethora of glitter spreading over his body.
With upbeat energy, the perfectly routined choreography adds to underpinned themes of freedom. The main focus of the video is accepting his fate and embracing who he has become. The embrace is made through interpretative dance on an isolated rooftop.
Following the success of last year’s dance floor hit, ‘Bike Engine’ featuring Stylo G, ‘About You’ highlights Jacob’s diverse production skills. He has created an infectious track driven by bubble-like synths and a bass-heavy rhythm. Maxine’s soaring vocals are lusciously layered over the top to create a pop-infused melody.
