Belgian DJ and honorary Kiwi Netsky has just released the official music video for Mixed Emotions - his collab with our very own Montell2099 - ahead of the release of his album Second Nature due out on 30th October.
After playing shows in NZ for the last 10 years and becoming a household name across the summer festival circuit, it is only fitting the track is an undeniable love letter to New Zealand.
Filmed across locations including Katikati, Queenstown, Coromandel and Auckland and featuring Ngai Te Rangi and Te Rereatukahia Marae, this video is a true celebration of Aotearoa and Netsky’s love for the land and people. You might have also spotted George hosts Kara, Lee, Sin and Brook!
He chatted with George Breakfast about the video, and how Kara helped as a bit of an Kiwi consultant before also touching on the upcoming festival season. Check out their chat up top and the music video down below.
"A love letter to Aotearoa.. I’ve considered New Zealand as a second home for a long time now. I’m eternally grateful for the memories this country and its people have given me. It felt natural to express my love for the country showcasing its natural beauty and the people who inspired Montell and I to write this song.
Huge thanks to Nana Mabel and all at Te Rereatukahia marae for your help and creative input, and all of the wonderful kiwi’s who featured in the video.
Ngā mihi nunui ki a koutou 💚”
Upcoming album Second Nature will feature 'Mixed Emotions' as well as collaborations with the likes of Sub Focus, Becky Hill, Rudimental, Hybrid Minds, and Urbandawn.
