Ballantine’s and Boiler Room’s True Music platform celebrates and supports artists that do it their way. With Maya Jane Coles at the helm, the True Music platform is travelling across South Africa, Russia and Spain, to create a remix EP working with fantastic talents in each country, starting with Johannesburg’s favourite, Culoe de Song.
The debut track from the ‘True Music EP’ sees Culoe remix ‘Won’t Let You Down’, an unreleased track from Maya’s forthcoming double album. Taking his signature deep, rolling house style, Culoe’s version pushes the track in a completely new direction.
Bringing this remix to life is this beautifully animated music video. Shot in Culoe’s hometown Johannesburg, it’s packed with clips from his incredible set at the recent True Music show there. So, sit back, hit play and see what happens when two forces of electronic music come together…
Maya Jane Coles said of the remix: “Culoe’s remix is completely different to the original – it’s great to hear his take on it. He’s another independent artist who’s super passionate about making music his own way and this really comes through. Definitely looking forward to working on our future True Music releases!”
