Riotron returns with a wonderfully eccentric and fantabulous video for the Wuki remix of his song ‘I’m Sorry’. The video features up & coming performer Johnny Rice as a drag queen lady liberty come to life, as well as a wild cameo from actor/comedian Tom Green.
Says Riotron mastermind Jeff Fettes, “I wanted to do justice to the Wuki remix with a completely new take on the video. Freedom is sexy. I thought, Let’s make a statement about that.”
The video was directed by Tony Corella and executive produced by Jennifer Goodridge who previously partnered to help create the edgy “Mad Hatter” video with Melanie Martinez. Goodridge has previously worked with a number of prominent artists, including George Ezra, Poppy, X Ambassadors and Beck to name a few.
Regarding the remix, Fettes says ‘I like writing songs that tell a story and Wuki's version makes you dance and think at the same time. Wuki is brilliant. Really next level.’ Wuki himself declares ‘this remix was a fun one, a bit more outside my usual lane so it was cool to try something new with it!’
One of the most celebrated and sought-after producers on the scene, Wuki (aka Kris Barman) has remixed or collaborated with a who’s who of today’s dance music glitterati, from the Chainsmokers to Diplo, RL Grime, Kill The Noise and Galantis, not to mention mainstream superstars like Miley Cyrus and Juvenile.
The brainchild of singer/songwriter Jeff Fettes, Riotron is an electro-pop project from Winnipeg, Canada that combines elements of 80s synthwave, EDM and even some jazz into a unique sound. The name is derived from the hit song ‘Rio’ by Duran Duran and the 1982 fantasy sci-fi film Tron. Look for more music and stunning visuals from Riotron coming soon.
