A name that’s fast becoming synonymous with high-spirited and eclectic dance releases, ‘Ballare’, the latest single from the Italian DJ and producer-extraordinaire finds Mind Enterprises referencing the euphoric Italo House sounds of the 1980s. Matching the track’s vintage day-glo vibes with fittingly shoulder-padded visuals, Mind Enterprises now unveils a brand new video that lovingly pays homage to the 1986 Tom Cruise blockbuster ‘Top Gun’.
Featuring Andrea Tirone (AKA Mind Enterprises) in a starring role as a plucky, loved-up fighter pilot akin to Cruise’s character Maverick, the video is a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek pastiche of the Hollywood classic. With added dance routines…
Directed by long-time visual collaborator Jack Barraclough, Andrea explains how the new video took flight:
“I thought the idea of re-making a Top Gun scene would get along great with ‘Ballare’ but I couldn’t figure out how to do it in practice. Here is when Jack jumped on board and the result is another chapter of Italo Disco soap opera, I’m very proud of it.”
Directly translating as ‘Dance’ in Italian, ‘Ballare’ was inspired by the seminal track of the same name by punk-funk icons ESG. With its striking, vintage aesthetic and disco-driven production, ‘Ballare’ is a retro-nodding, groove-fuelled Summer smash in-waiting and is out now on the Because label (Metronomy / Sebastian / Christine & The Queens).
‘Ballare’ follows the 2018 single releases ‘Gemini’ and ‘S.H.A.K.E’. The latter of which saw Tirone adopt a Bill Gates meets Tony Montana character in the accompanying video – WATCH HERE. The vibrant video saw support from titles including NOTION, Dancing Astronaut and Spindle Magazine.
Following his journey into uncharted afro-disco territories with his 2016 albumIdealist, Mind Enterprises returned with addictive italo-disco 2017 release ‘Idol’. As well as being named on ShortList’s ‘50 Greatest Songs of 2017’, the release received support from a wealth of titles including Mixmag, DUMMY, The Ransom Note and PHOENIX Mag. While Tirone might seem to have found inspiration through his national heritage, his geographical journey tells a fuller story. Having fled his hometown of Turin in 2011, Tirone lived in East London for 6 years before recently relocating to the tropical island of Gran Canaria – “the southest place in Europe”, as he puts it.
“I took a map and looked for the most laidback life and sunny place in Europe. Perhaps I’m overreacting to London?”
However, location only tells part of the story – as the name suggests Mind Enterprises has always been about Tirone tapping his own imagination, taking inspiration from a host of eclectic means.
