MeLo-X crafted a project that pays homage to an album that shook the world and the internet when it appeared out of thin air. He recently released his YONCÉ-X project, which contained 6-tracks with original remixes. Premiered by RevoltTV, watch as MeLo-X gives us the visuals for “Drunk In Lust”. The video takes place at Sean Kelly Gallery in NYC during a live showcase with a Melo-X curated backdrop to accompany the music. You can watch the video below.
“I’ve been doing remix albums for a while now. This Beyonce album was just so revolutionary and had so many layers and stories I kept hearing bits and pieces I could elaborate on. The remix album can also be looked at as a instrumental album because I’m sampling her music the way a producer would sample a old 1970′s record. It’s really a big art and passion project for me. I met Beyonce at a New Years eve party at Solange’s house 2 years ago and gained even more respect and admiration for her.”
“I bought the album the day it came out and vibed with it until Christmas day. On that night I made the whole Remix EP and spent the next week creating the video pieces and just refining the mixes. I decided to release the project [today] because it is Blue Ivy’s birthday. It’s like the stars aligned all crazy and I couldn’t pass this chance up”
