Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are riding high off the success of their latest single “Hey Baby”, a collaborative effort with heavyweight Diplo and Deb’s Daughter. While the track continues to gain momentum around the globe, the three artists have released the official video for their latest offering, which was dropped on November 2nd. The song proved one of the standout offerings from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s production catalog in 2016, as they teamed up with Diplo for the anthemic single, plotting Deb’s Daughter’s catchy topline over a mighty synth progression.
“Hey Baby” marks Dimitri Vegas & Like Mikes eight collaboration in 2016. The melodic, whimsical essence of the song starkly contrasts its lyrical theme, which evokes a Carribean mentality strongly influenced by Diplo himself. The buoyant melodies and youthful vocals may seem to be a classic combination, but the result is summarily successful.
The video primarily stars Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike and Diplo as comic book figures, placing the three producers into colorful, cinematic adventures. What starts as a usual visit at the cinema, turns into an adventure, whereas the three endevour through scenes from King Kong, Game Of Thrones and other fantasy worlds. Ultimately, the video completes the feel-good aesthetic first evoked in the original, offering a simple, yet fitting visual counterpart to the larger-than-life production.
