Following the official release of their debut collaboration back in January on Protocol Recordings, Raiden and Bright Lights return with the stunning video accompaniment to ‘Heart Of Steel’ directed by Cedar Films’ Kyle Padilla.
The video follows a young, part-robotic girl seeking avengement for her father’s murder by an infamous thug gang. Through parallel action and flashbacks, the video shows the girl’s life journey, from the development of her robotic characteristics – metallic bones and, of course, a heart of steel – and the murder of her father, to the avengement of her father’s death; championing a clandestine fight against the thug gang responsible for his murder.
Director Padilla’s “Pixar thriller super hero” vision perfectly encapsulates the out-of-this-world and futuristic sound that Raiden has mastered in ‘Heart Of Steel’. The powerful female characters and emotive storyline resonate with Bright Lights’ commanding topline, resulting in a truly mesmerising video accompaniment.
After an exceptionally busy 2016, performing at countless ULTRA events and with two huge remixes under his belt, Raiden is showing no signs of slowing down this year. Performing at some of the largest festivals and events around the globe, including Croatia Winter Music Festival and Don’t Let Daddy Know, and releasing his debut original production via Protocol Recordings all before February comes to a close, Raiden is set to make this year his biggest to date.
Garnering support from the likes of David Guetta, Martin Garrix and Nicky Romero and sharing the stage with industry top dogs such as Fedde Le Grand has ensured that Raiden is most certainly an artist to watch.
