• I’m really excited for this one.

    We shot the video last summer at a beach near Amsterdam.

    It may not be May yet but “Summertime has arrived you can feel it in the air…” declares D.O. on the new single “Good For The Summer” from LDM, NTRIKIT, iLLvibe and D.O. Gibson.

    The track is an international collaboration amongst artists from the Netherlands, US and Canada. The four connected at New Skool Rules – Europe’s largest Hip-Hop conference – in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 2015.

    They would reconnect in the summer of 2016 to shoot the video for the song at Bloemendaal – a pristine beach located thirty minutes from Amsterdam.

    The track began as a single for Lloyd De Meza aka LDM – a longtime fixture in the Netherland music scene. US producer NTRIKIT approached LDM to make a remix of the song. They knew they had something special on their hands, but felt that it was missing one thing – a guest rapper. Instead of getting one, they got two – they reached out to friends D.O. Gibson and iLLvibe to contribute vocals.

    “As soon as I heard it, I knew it was a smash. I wrote and recorded my lyrics in the span of a couple of hours,” says iLLvibe.

    2017 will see the four reconnect at New Skool Rules in May with a performance at the conference that they originally connected at.

    “You attend conferences to build relationships with artists and people in the industry, but most people don’t follow up so nothing happens. We wanted to show people the power of collaboration,” says producer NTRIKIT.

    While a collaborative release, each of the four artists has something major planned for 2017 with a steady stream of releases.

    “We are supportive of each other,” says LDM “We all want each other to win.”

    The proof is in his lyrics, “Flex, Relax, No negativity on deck,” sings LDM.

    “Good For The Summer” is available on all digital outlets via Heavy Aux / Fontana.
