New York-based producer LODATO quickly climbed the dance radio charts with “Neon Lights,” claiming his 4th #1 record in a two year time frame. For reference, only David Guetta, Diplo and Joel Corry have had four #1 records in that same time frame.
Now, LODATO delivers a neon-soaked music video for the poppy, crossover record. Set in futuristic Las Vegas, LODATO dodges robot patrol officers, stumbles into a dive bar, falls in love with a beautiful cyborg, then discovers his own newfound powers.
“Neon Lights” is only the latest delivery in LODATO’s consistently-creative output, showcasing the producer’s prowess for laying down a powerful pop hook alongside his signature, synth-driven beats.
LODATO is an American DJ, producer & remixer from Queens, New York. Over the past year LODATO has topped the Billboard Dance Charts with multiple #1’s. LODATO’s original single ‘Home’, landed itself at #1 on the U.S. Dance Radio Chart for three consecutive weeks, #1 on BPM’s Top 20 CountDown (Sirius XM) for four consecutive weeks and #1 on the Billboard Dance/Top 40 Mixshow Airplay Chart.
In May 2020, LODATO and Bright Sparks’ single “Good Thing” went #1 on Dance Radio and Billboard dance.
LODATO is the first to launch his own virtual reality environment on Tribe XR, an app for learning how to DJ.
Powered by VR brand Oculus, the “LODATO Lounge” is programmed alongside a virtual city based off the single’s music video.
“Neon Lights” falls right in line with LODATO’s recent string of vocal-driven, dance-ready anthems. A classic club jam, it comes complete with an anthemic pop hook and lively electro drop, incorporating guitar and piano alongside fist-pumping synths and punchy bass notes.
