龙神道联手荷兰当红DJ推出单曲《I Say》 在变幻的世界中拥抱现在
2015.04.16


当Reggae遭遇电音,你听到的并不一定就是Dub,还有可能是一首雷鬼风味依旧浓厚的EDM(电子舞曲)——正如此次龙神道乐队与荷兰当红DJ组合The Partysquad合作的这首《I Say》。

在去年的摩登天空17周年大趴上,龙神道的国囝以DJ身份亮相惊艳全场,令人惊叹这个雷鬼Rasta竟有如此“才艺”。而这次他回归Rasta本尊,创作出这首纯正的雷鬼单曲《I Say》,经由荷兰大牌DJ组合The Partysquad妙手混音,将雷鬼乐带入了狂欢的舞池。

正如国囝在歌词中所述,“昨天,已经成为梦幻;现在,有爱在我身边;明天,我依然看不见”,在快速变幻的世界中,未来无从把握或者设计,而对于Reggae而言,“身边的爱”却并不局限于狭隘的爱情,而是植根于牙买加拉斯塔法里文化中的,对生命和存在的爱——这是牙买加原住民在苦中作乐的经历中逐渐形成的一种顽强的乐观,却在现代人充满焦虑的生活中产生了回响。当《I Say》那电气化的雷鬼之声响彻舞场,必将令所有Party Animal们为之忘忧,为之疯狂!

来自阿姆斯特丹的The Partysquad是著名电音厂牌Mad Panda旗下最成功的EDM DJ组合之一,他们与包括M.I.A、Diplo、Major Lazer、Afrojack等在内的诸多国际大牌均有过合作,EDM与雷鬼的结合便是他们最具标志性的声音。而龙神道作为中国第一支真正意义上的雷鬼乐队,凭借世界性的音乐语言,近年来已成为国际知名音乐节的常客,愈发受到国外音乐人的关注。此次颇具挑战性的合作,将为他们争取到更多国际主流音乐的乐迷。

4月30日,龙神道将与The Partysquad在北京糖果三层联合进行《I Say》的首演,MAE(摩登天空与欧洲顶尖派对品牌及电子音乐节主办方Art of Dance成立的合作机构)旗下的知名派对品牌RELEASE将为大家呈现最嗨的Electro Reggae现场!

Together with partners Modern Sky and Art of Dance, artists The Partysquad& Long Shen Dao combined forces and cooked up the perfect summer track for 2015. The song represents two different worlds and sounds coming together and can be recognized by a catchy chorus, a melody based on reggae sounds and an up-tempo beat. This track guarantees you to jump and sing a-long in full force!

Mad Panda’s The Partysquad is a successful DJ duo from Amsterdam, Holland who have worked with many large acts such as: M.I.A, DIPLO, MAJOR LAZER & AFROJACK to name a few. They have played all over the world on festivals like Tomorrowland, Ultra and Glastonbury. Their signature sound is Electro-house combined with reggae.

Long Shen Dao, a band of 5, who are seen as the founders of reggae music in China have been next to being a solid act at Strawberry Festival, touring through Australia, New Zealand and Canada and are now ready to take the next international step!

The 30th of April is going to be a memorable night as this will be the night that this musical collaboration between The Partysquad& Long Shen Dao will be performed live for the first time! MAE’s concept RELEASE will be held at Tango 3F in Beijing to welcome everybody and witness this unique moment.

《I Say》

昨天,已经成为梦幻
现在,有爱在我身边
明天,我依然看不见

I Say

生命其实没有想象的那么漫长
未来不一定就是所计划的那样
变幻的世界如同这个宇宙一样
总有一些事情,出乎你的希望

所以我的爱就是整个世界
要去的地方就不会再去等待
每时每刻都为证明我的存在
尊重每个生命也尊重每粒尘埃

Yesterday has already become a faded dream
Right now, there's love at my side
Tomorrow, as always, can't be seen

I Say

Life is actually not as endless as we imagine
The future will not necessarily be exactly as we planned
This ever-changing world is like you trying to understand the universe
There will always be some things
that go beyond your expectations and yearnings
 
So therefore my love is my entire world
Can't continue to wait to go where I want to go
Got to live every moment in a way that proves my existence
Respecting every living thing, respecting every speck of dust
