The Goon is flying the flag for the Sunny South-East in the visuals for his latest single.
After premiering 'Let Loose' on Hot Press last month, Pat Lagoon has shared the music video for the single. Paying homage to Wateford summers, 'Let Loose' marks a new direction in Lagoon's style, with added house elements courtesy of electronic artist Evan Miles.
"I tried to find a nice balance between my sound and Pat's," Miles revealed in a statement about the release. "I heard 'Rack$$$' a couple of years ago and thought it was a tune straight away. Since then i've been onto Pat about doing another house-y track - fortunately I was able to help with this."
Since first making his mark on the Irish music scene in June 2018, Lagoon has seen his profile rise with a number of acclaimed releases and live performances. Last November, he teamed up with Coolock rapper RikShaw to share the collaborative Recess EP.
Lagoon has kept himself busy since then with a major support slot for Token at The Academy in Dublin, collaborations with Ghost King Is Dead and RikShaw, and upcoming releases with the likes of Awkward Z, ØMEGA and BoyW1DR.
Miles, a founding member of the arts and music collective Anomaly, has also had a busy few months, clocking up performances in venues across the country, as well as at sets at Konnect Festival. A genre-defying artist, the Waterford native's work has ranged from hip-house collaborations with Lagoon to acid house remixes of Ghost King Is Dead tracks.
