The long-awaited debut album from Julio Bashmore is on the horizon. Set for release on August 7th, “Knockin Boots” represents a year’s worth of studio time as an artist in residence at London’s Red Bull Studios. Bashmore has released a number of streams from the record and it’s chalk full of infectious, soulful, and uplifting vocal house music.
During the making of the record, Red Bull Music spent plenty of time with Bashmore getting a behind-the-scenes look at not only his creative process but also his day-to-day life. Director Daniel Brereton (who’s done music videos for the likes of Kindness, Metronomy, Erol Alkan, and others) spent a few days with Bashmore in his hometown of Bristol in addition to London where he was able to see where he grew up, meet his family, and capture some great footage of the cast of characters in the artist’s life as well as integrate a few of the folks who were involved in the making of the album. Certainly not your ordinary album promo video. Enjoy.
Julio Bashmore’s “Knockin Boots” is available to pre-order now via iTunes ahead of its August 7th release. Also, check out the wicked Bashmore remix of Disclosure’s latest, “Holding On,” featuring Gregory Porter.
