From Young Pals Records we get the terrific release of its 10th studio project, summer dancefloor anthem “Wild,” Miami Remixed, by Tinatin.
With socially conscious lyrics that speak to the issue of climate change, Young Pals is donating 10% of the song’s proceeds to Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection.
The collection comprises five re-rubs of the song from prominent DJs, plus the music video, lensed in New York City and South Beach, Miami.
In addition to the Ayhan Sahin Crystal Ball Remix, versions of “Wild” include the Jason Jayma & DJ Scorpio Club Mix, Luke Savant Club Mix, Tom Noize Remix, Orly Productions Remix and Jay Moore Synth Mix.
The video clip showcases Tinatin as a tightly wound Wall Street executive fantasizing about letting loose in a sexually charged fantasy sequence shot throughout posh clubs and hotels and along the sandy beaches of South Beach. It was lensed by Christopher Holmes/ Holmeswood Features, as was the music video for the original EP version of “Wild.”
An acclaimed vocalist, songwriter and writer, Billboard magazine named Tinatin an “Artist To Watch” in 2008. Her composition “Connected” was a Pop finalist in the John Lennon Song Contest.
In 2009, “Is It True,” sung by Yohanna and co-written by Tinatin, was runner-up among 42 global entries at the prestigious Eurovision Song Contest held in Moscow. She was also named Lyricist of the Year by the ESC European Music Awards.
Producer Ayhan Sahin has worked with Olivia Newton-John, Melba Moore, Phoebe Snow, Turkish superstar Sezen Aksu, Sandra Bernhard and a half-dozen “American Idol” finalists, including the 2010 debut single for “AI” season eight finalist/comedian Norman Gentle, “Bitch Slap!” Sahin is associate producer of the award-winning music documentary “Lift Humanitarian Relief Songs Initiative,” which features Tinatin as one of 35 vocalists from around the world.
I think the song sounds perfect for summer dancing, especially when you watch the video which captures the international Euro-cuban glamour of Miami Beach, with gorgeous people everywhere you look.
