Future-funk electronic producer Flamingosis makes good on his promise with the bright and bubbly animated music video for the new single “Daymaker”.
Animated by Nick Parente, “Daymaker” leads off with a vocal sample from Flamingosis’ father, who was a world-renowned professional frisbee player back in the 1970s—1980s. His father and uncle coined the term “Flamingosis” as a frisbee move, hence the moniker and the creative vision behind the animated clip.
The “Daymaker” video takes the viewer on a unique visual journey through the city—from the viewpoint of a frisbee—to experience the best aspects of a perfect summer day. With its retro ’70s vibe and expertly integrated breakbeat drums and vibrant yet charmingly innocent animation style, the entire audiovisual experience evokes the best of days and all the elements that make them so.
Flamingosis himself calls the song “probably one of my favorite tracks that I have ever made.” He continues, “I hope it makes someone’s day better after listening to it. The video is a reflection of everything in my life that has inspired the Flamingosis project. Frisbee, flamingos, the shore, funk and soul music, cartoons/anime and living life. I wanted all of that incorporated into a music video. Big thank you to Nick Parente and his whole team of animators for their hard work in bringing the vision to life.”
