Jon Giovanni Preps Single for Grizzly; Watch His Video, Stream a WAFA Remix
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Who in the hell is Jon Giovanni? Besides being the latest signing to Sinden's Grizzly imprint, he's also a veteran, Grammy-award-winning artist—at least that's what we're being told; the guy is operating under an alias. Regardless, the first Jon Giovanni single, "Take Off," is set for release on January 31. The original is a supercharged take on disco-flavored house with some potent strings and a stompy beat. Check the fun-filled video below, which somehow marries clips from a litany of vintage films with Twin Peaks and some flamingo-centric nature footage. We've also got a stream of a remix from Grizzly labelmate WAFA, who dials down the disco and impossibly turns out a version that's even more hyperactive than the original.
