Mason Maynard drops official video for new collab with Green Velvet ‘Propane’
Mason Maynard delivers a fresh animated accompaniment for his new single with Green Velvet, ‘Propane’.
A rave-ready tech bomb, ‘Propane’ centres around siren-like synths, a groove-laden bassline and hypnotic vocals repeating the line ‘get it on, get it on’. The pair previously linked up on 2018 tracks ‘Got This’ and ‘Auto Mate’, while ‘Propane’ marks Mason’s third release this year following his Fantazia EP and his Hot Creations debut “McLovin”, both of which were heavily supported on the underground from the likes of Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Paul Woolford, Carl Cox and more.
The new video features a vibrant and exciting array of bubbling animations pulsating as the song progresses, weaving a complex and beautiful tapestry to accompany the upbeat house jam. The track is flying across numerous Beatport charts, and as the cover of Amazon Music’s ‘Fresh Dance’ playlist for the week following release, the record has been playlisted and supported across the globe, generating over 100k+ global streams in just 7 days.
When discussing the records creation, Mason Maynard said:
“It’s been a long road getting this song out & people have been hounding me constantly so I’m glad it’s finally here. Initially I made the track and sent it to Velvet but didn’t put a name on it so he had been playing it a lot but not knowing where it came from.
I followed up a couple weeks later thinking he mustn’t have been feeling it, but it was in fact the exact opposite and from there he did what he does on the mic and here we have it.. Propane.“
The 2019 summer saw this track doing serious damage across the world with the likes of Fisher, Claude VonStroke, Solardo, Green Velvet all playing Propane to huge festival audiences. 2020 has seen continued support across the board as the record’s been spun across streams, e-festivals and DJ sets worldwide by droves of A-list selectors.
Backed by BBC Radio 1 tastemakers Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Danny Howard, who bestowed the accolade of ‘One To Watch’ upon the Manchester-born DJ, Mason Maynard continues to cement his reputation as one of dance music’s fastest rising talents. Receiving weekly support from Danny Howard since the release, the radio support for Mason continues to grow release on release. With 300+ Shazams on day of release, the hype for the track is only going in one direction.
One of the most recognisable and adored figures from the world of dance music, Chicago veteran Green Velvet has been crafting cutting-edge club tracks for over three decades. A busy 2020 has seen him collaborate with Eli Brown, Joeski and Layton Giordani.
With two generations of house talent joining forces on ‘Propane’, the result is a bumping club cut primed for maximum dancefloor impact.
