Watch the official music video for Mr. Belt & Wezol’s ‘Good Times’
Mr. Belt & Wezol have received attention for their eccentric future bass sound which has been featured on Spinnin’ records label over the years. In 2015, the duo gained international recognition for their hit single “Somebody To Love,” which held its spot in Beatport’s Top 10 for over a month, gaining support from DJs like Oliver Heldens, Avicii and The Magician as well as radio plays from artist such as Martin Garrix and Nicky Romero.
After dropping other festival hits like “Finally” and “RDY2FLY” on Spinnin’ Deep, the Dutch duo turned into a veritably exciting house act to see perform. Mr. Belt & Wezol are known for reworking the classics into perfection, creating anthems out of traditional hits that feature progressive deep house chords and funky rhythms. The outfit has gained support from other renown DJs, including Sam Feldt, who played the track at Ultra Miami’s mainstage last month. Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Quintino, Lucas & Steve, and Ummet Ozcan have also supported the track on their radio shows.
The duo said the following of the release:
“What’s a better follow-up to our take on ‘Boogie Wonderland’ than a take on Chic’s ‘Good Times’? I think it’s one of the most sampled tunes in music nowadays, but we didn’t hear any house takes on it yet so we figured, why not give it a spin of our own? Fun thing is that everyone, including most people of our own generation, knows its lyrics and can sing along to it; even though it’s a song released in 1979.”
The music video showcases a man who starts the day off in shambles, wearing a brown paper bag over his head in shame… However, as the day progresses, the main character meets up with some enchanted forest friends for a ‘good time’ that turns into an all out dance party. The scene gets a little wild, and is borderline NSFW, but will definitely generate a laugh or two from the sheer ridiculousness of the storyline. Mr. Belt and Wezol give viewers a ‘good time’ in their latest release, however it might be too much of a party. Any and all who view from here can consider themselves duly warned.
