DJ Clock x Beatenberg 'Pluto (Remember You)'

South Africa's DJ Clock x Beatenberg 'Pluto (Remember You)' receives a new animated lyric video.


Back in November SA house veteran DJ Clock teamed up with Cape Town's Beatenberg on the second single off The Fourth Tick: A Clockumentary. On "Pluto (Remember You)" the East Rand heavyweight works off an indie-pop base, courtesy of the Beatenberg guys, to explore a breezier side of house music. The resulting dreamy-day, beachside exchange now has an accompanying lyric video, the latest in what seems to be a wave of brightly colored animated visuals from SA (of which John Wizards artist Sebastian Borckenhagen may be leading the way). Watch the clip for summertime collab ”Pluto (Remember You)” below. For more from Beatenberg catch up on this Africa In Your Earbuds mixtape.
