Martin Solveig once again managed to deliver a lighthearted party anthem with remarkable substance in the form of last month’s “Do It Right” featuring Maidza, and the song’s official music video accomplishes the same – but in the context of a more visual medium. Set against the backdrop of the Spanish structure La Muralla Roja, the video owes much of its picturesque imagery to the landmark’s angular planes.
Clips of Solveig running around the building’s MC Escher-reminiscent staircases are interspersed with those of Maidza singing the radio-friendly top line of “Do It Right.” At times, the visual elements take a turn for the downright absurd, with body-painted models and fur-covered yetis dancing to the song’s rhythms.
La Muralla Roja was built in the La Manzanera development in Spain’s Calpe in 1973, and was intended to resemble the architecture of the Arab Mediterranean Area. Its bold colors make it one of Spain’s most recognizable landmarks, and it houses 50 apartments.
With such a striking visual accompaniment, Martin Solveig‘s “Do It Right” featuring Maidza is well on its way to becoming one of the 2016 festival season’s most memorable releases. After watching the track’s official music video, be prepared to hear it in even more DJ sets in the coming months.
