Gidon Schocken announces his ‘Immerse’ LP
Electronic artist Gidon Schocken has given us at Data Transmission the exclusive first place of the video for his newest single ‘Show Me The Way (feat. Filippo Fabbri, Tahel & Ori Lichtik).
We are excited to bring you the track, which has been lifted from his forthcoming album ‘Immerse‘ which will be released on the 25 October via Gidon Schocken Music. With ‘Show Me the Way’ you can expect a driving force of a track. Filippo Fabbri, Tahel & Ori Lichtik‘s overlapping vocals sounds spine-tingling – the track ends in a monster electro-synth, which blows you away.
Schocken was born in the USA but moved to Israel as a youngster, now residing in Tel Aviv, where he is inspired by the cultural mosaic the city has to offer, and the opportunity to collaborate and connect with like-minded musicians from all over the world. He has been on stage as a musician since the age of 15, traversing the musical landscapes of multiple genres as a youngster – from punk to post-rock and hardcore, using music as a means to escape from the world. He evolved through several musical disciplines and finally discovered the art of sampling which he uses as the base for creating his music.
The video, directed by Stephan Stelman, is centred around the idea that life can change in a moment, and how split-second decisions can impact us to the very core. We see a group of friends exploring these themes on a night out that takes a sudden turn for the worst, with Oliver Stone-esque visuals and the driving sonic accompaniment of ‘Show Me The Way (feat. Filippo Fabbri, Tahel & Ori Lichtik’
Speaking of the track Schocken explains: “The track is about the fragility of life, how death can be so sudden and abrupt and how sometimes there’s no time to truly say goodbye to a loved one. I’d met up with a good friend for dinner who had told me of a family member’s sudden passing. A few hours later I got back home, worked on the track and added the main synth that comes in around the middle that set the tone for the rest of the song.” He goes on to add “The music video is similar to the story of the track but in a different light. We tried to depict how everything can change in one moment, but in the video, it’s a group of friends who get lost in a moment of lust, jealousy and violence.”
