Who wants to take a weekend ride with Diamond Dave?!
The latest animated video from the Mojo Dojo Network features David Lee Roth full blast and top-down cruising the freeway to the sounds of his song “Let’s Take A Ride”. It’s his take on the 1982 Shalamar song “A Night To Remember”.
Here is what artist Ramses Rios posted to YouTube along with the video:
Westcoast bound and then some- cruising down the Harbor Freeway. This song is a vibe, so you know I had to pair it up somehow with David Lee Roth’s 51’ Mercury, which I absolutely love. Its a chill and laid back short animation to this gem of a song by the Diamond.
In addition, the bass line needed just a bit of a touch up, so I played and added in some minor fills to the already existing bass line to give it a bit more “groove”. Some hammer-ons and small bits here and there if you listen closely 😉
Illustration/still animations inspired by 80s & 90s Japanese anime, “City Pop”/Chillwave music videos.
