Video Premiere – Phonogramma – Mon president est egoiste

RGM receives many requests for new music, but not much from Russia, until today, here is something different for you to enjoy from overseas.

Here is some information on the band and their new video.????

Phonogramma is a new Russian electronic project founded at the beginning of 2020 by two well-established Russian producers Mike Von Gall and Slava Voroshnin. In Russia they are more well-known for being founders and musicians of electro-pop Vougal, within which they toured a lot in Russia, Europe and China. Phonogramma widens the horizons. There is no permanent vocalist in the team. Mike and Slava invite co-authors and featuring artists from all over the world. Their debut single “I am 21” was rotated on national radio station Maximum and highly evaluated by foreign colleagues, while its official music video is now rotated on MTV. Phonogramma released their second single “Mon president est egoiste” on the 30th of July. It is a French-language track created together with French rapper Tony Blaster, who came to Moscow in 2014 answering a call of his heart. The name of the track is translated as “My president is an egoist”. Some people may perceive it as a political track, but to us it is rather funny and dancy.

On the 9th of September Phonogramma are releasing an official music video for this track. The plot of the music video reminds us of the days we spent on quarantine. The video was shot in the conditions of complete lockdown in the country. Not everyone will notice that, but in every location in the video, there is a portrait of a fat cat in front of the Russian flag and the Kremlin. Is it just a cat or an allusion? Who knows 🙂
