Perhaps not satisfied with the Sasha Lane–starring Spotify visual for “Call Out My Name,” the Weeknd has released new music video for the My Dear Melancholy track. The vibe is still quite … melancholic: Abel Tesfaye walks alone down deserted streets or on deserted stages or in the deserted wilderness. Eventually, a creature with a woman’s body and a hawk’s beak delivers us through an Annihilation-style shimmer. It’s nothing particularly spectacular, but a fitting visual for Melancholy’s saddest breakup song. A highlight: the bats that, rather inexplicably, fly out of the Weeknd’s mouth

Diplo‘s debuted an official video for the Flume-reminiscent “Color Blind” track featuring Lil Xan off the Mad Decent producer’s new California EP.
The video was directed by longtime collaborator Austin Peters, who also helmed Major Lazer’s feature documentary Give Me Future, as well as the video for “Miss You.”
California, the first solo body of work from Diplo in five years, is named for the state where he recorded the EP, serving as a full circle moment for the artist whose debut album was named Florida, in honor of the state in which he grew up. Dancing Astronaut

Bibliothèque Records head honcho Sebjak has teamed up with the prolific Matt Nash to deliver the invigorating tune “I Need A Friend” on Spinnin’ Deep.
“I Need A Friend” reflects the signature styles of both producers, as it’s characterized by heavy, deep brasses, progressive melodies, and a hypnotic vocal. Melodic clings intertwine with sinister synths and wavy vocals, which result in an authentic record. Deep yet powerful, this track is both a perfect club weapon and Spotify tool.
The two producers have already collaborated in the past on “Fire Higher“, released on Ultra Music back in 2015. Sebjak and Matt Nash must be considered the “fathers” of the current techy/progressive style which has been growing so fast in the last year: the UK producer, with “Know My Love“, has introduced heavy techno brasses in the mainstream EDM, while Sebjak created a label focused on this sound, his own Bibliothèque Records.
