If there’s one thing we like more here at DMNW than EDM, it’s superhero movies. Marvel and DC fans alike agree that this is the golden age of the superhero film. Between sagas like The Avengers and the dark re-telling of Batman and Superman’s origins, it’s a good time to be a movie fan, that’s for sure. This particular time of year means all the trailers for the summer blockbusters are releasing, and one of the most anticipated ventures of 2017 will soon be here—Spider-Man: Homecoming.
A twist on the old format of Spiderman flicks, this one does not start with his origin story (and may we say, thank goodness). Instead, it picks up with him adjusting to life after his introduction in the last Captain America film, Civil War. Wait, you must be thinking, you’re a festival, music and culture blog, why are we discussing movies? We don’t know if you’ve seen the new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, but we recognize a little tune in it from a couple of our west coast friends…
Stickybuds and K+Lab came together to make their new smoker of a tune, Clap Your Hands. When the track dropped on Westwood Recordings back in February, and remained at the #1 spot for 18 weeks on the Beatport Glitch Hop charts, it brought much glee to the two funk superstars. After joining forces for the first time in 2015 with their breakout single Super Gravy, the international pair have linked up again—this time reinterpreting The Meters much loved Hand Clapping Song to devastating effect. Featuring KWADI on the vocals, all new instrumentation, and the duo’s signature electronic drums and synth lines, Clap Your Hands Now is sure to put them back in the spotlight for 2017 with funk and bass lovers alike.
Now it’s licensed to use in an international blockbuster movie trailer, and we’re brimming with excitement! This is posing to be one of the movies of the summer, and having this tune being featured in a main ad spot is not only great promotion for the two artists, but for the scene in general, moving our way into the foreground in a positive way!
What do you think of the tune? What things are you hoping for in the new movie? Let us know in the comments!
