RIP Youth – Video On
RIP Youth Return to Release the Sexy New Single “Video On”.
Australian born, LA-based RIP Youth – the moniker of hit songwriter/producer James Maas – returns to drop his sexy new single “Video On” available everywhere on July 28th via Radikal Records.
“Video On” is a high-energy electropop track on spicing things up with your partner. Playful 80’s inspired synths bounce their way through hard-hitting pop drums, as Maas delivers flirty tongue in cheek lyrics on turning the camera on in the bedroom.
“Video on” is a song of sexual liberation and experimentation in the bedroom. Seeing yourself as the voyeur can add that extra little something to spice things up. We’ve produced the song to sound like you’re in the recording literally having just hit record and enticing your partner to play along. It’s a cool 80’s Wham kind of vibe that feels timeless yet set in the age of only fans and video phones in our pocket.” – RIP Youth
The new single sees Maas continuing to push his pop-sensibilities to new heights, showing RIP Youth at their catchiest productions yet. With Maas’ longtime friend and Playboy model, Elsa Jean adorning the cover art to match, “Video On” radiates pure sexy fun.
The single follows-up RIP Youth’s smash collaboration with world–renowned DJ/Producer, R3HAB and exercise equipment trailblazers, Peloton on “It’s A Vibe (R3HAB Remix) – Peloton Edit”. Released in support of Pride Month 2022, R3HAB’s remix of RIP Youth’s original track was premiered at Peloton New York Studios as part of Cody Rigsby and Peloton’s DJ John Michael’s ‘Pride Live DJ Ride’. With strong radio support globally and nearly 750,000 streams on Spotify the mix has elevated RIP Youth to new heights.
