With the release of ‘Fools Paradise’ the Dutch DJ/MC trio Dirtcaps and Dutch female singer Rochelle prove that they know what today’s international audience is looking for in EDM music. The combination of trap with electro house sounds, using Rochelle’s warm, but refreshing voice, makes the track a steady follow up in her featuring in ‘Shotgun’ with Yellow Claw. In the video Rochelle and her dancers are featured in an apocalyptic ‘Paradise’ which reflects on the raw yet worldwide accepted sound which the young producers created for the song.
The track and video of ‘Fools Paradise’ are now available on Spotify and Youtube. On May 22th the song will be available through iTunes and all other online stores.
