Latin Tropical/Soul band 3D Rhythm of Life (3D Ritmo de Vida) recently debuted FANTASY, their latest single and video. The release was conceived by 3D Rhythm of Life, and was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Ricky Gonzalez.
It has been said that a great song can live on in many styles and calls to be heard. Fantasy, the classic Earth Wind and Fire song exemplifies this with a new Latin-Tropical-Soul version directed by Tane Martinez and produced by two-time Grammy nominee Michael Tate. The video was filmed in NYC at the Triad Theater and on the Hudson River.
The recording, like many in 3D’s songbook, started as an idea with a small band arrangement. According to Tate, “I just knew that the message of this song could be shared with the world again and with a new exciting flavor.”
The “Latin-Tropical-Soul” version of FANTASY is the first of it’s kind. Originally recorded by the legendary Earth Wind and Fire, FANTASY has become a huge hit, and an international favorite. FANTASY will be the first single from the future album under the same name (to be released in the fall of 2016).
