God is God Juno Reactor 2024

So, back in '97, I teamed up with Ray Stevens to create the "God is God" video. I licensed "The Color of Pomegranates," a movie by Sergei Parajanov. One of Martin Scorsese’s top ten films. I got together with Nick Burton to write this track. An amazing percussionist and he's also the eyes behind the designs for some of Juno Reactor's singles and album covers, like "Bible of Dreams" and "Labyrinth." We probably finished it around the first album "Transmissions," but it just didn't fit with the themes of those early albums. It wasn't until "Bible of Dreams" that Greg Hunter, a great engineer and producer, mixed it. A funny thing is that when God Is God dropped, it blew up on MTV's late-night dance shows and caught the eye of Alice Cooper and Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey's husband, Tommy Mattola CEO of Sony Records, even hit up my manager, Mick Paterson, wanting me to direct Mariah's next video. I said no. First off, I have too much respect for Sergei Parajanov and his original work. Plus, directing a big-budget video! All I'd ever done was Super 8 stuff. And honestly, making a video for a big star didn’t feel right. Even after Tommy insisted, I said no. Big shoutout to Mike Stanton for syncing up the footage and edits with an upscaled film version. The old one was kinda blurry... .Don't miss exclusive updates - sign up to the JR family newsletter: 📩 https://www.junoreactor.com/news Follow & stay social 💜 follow the link tree below https://linktr.ee/junoreactor Pre-order Imagination.
