|Michael Woods feat. Ester Dean - We've Only Just Begun|
|20 September 2012|
Michael Woods is one of the UK's hottest producers. Signed to Ministry of Sound, and with a range of fans and collaborators including Example, Calvin Harris, and Deadmau5, Woods is ready to break into the mainstream in his own right with 'We've Only Just Begun', featuring US rising star and Roc Nation artist, Ester Dean (co-writer on Rihanna’s ‘Rude Boy’ and ‘What's My Name’, Katy Perry’ ‘Firework’, Robin Thicke’s ‘Sex Therapy’, and Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass).
The video for ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’ features the Team GB Rhythmic Gymnastics Group. In August, the seven-girl squad made history by becoming the first rhythmic group to represent Britain at the London 2012 Olympics. The team then went on to achieve a personal best score. Since forming in 2009, the squad has competed at major competitions including the World and European championships, and the Elite World Cup.
The video features the team as they’ve never been seen before. Using a process called ‘trails’, each of the girls’ outfits were fitted with 60 LED lights in order to capture their movements during the routines.
'We've Only Just Begun' was first premiered by Radio 1’s Pete Tong, with further support from Danny Howard and repeat plays from Capital’s Andi Durrant and Kiss’s Steve Smart. The track also debuted at No.1 on the Cool Cuts chart.
Though artists such as Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Ne-Yo, Example (Woods produced last year's No.1 hit, 'Changed The Way You Kiss Me'), Tiesto, Shakira and Martin Solveig have hired Michael to renovate their sound into a style which emulates his musical vision, it’s the output of his own label, Diffused Music, and his releases for imprints including Mau5trap, Fly Eye and Toolroom Records that have established him as a longstanding underground star. In addition, J.Lo, Lady Gaga and P Diddy have all called upon his remixing skills, leaving his studios in LA and London rarely empty.
Michael is one of Ministry of Sound's key Saturday night resident DJs.
‘WE'VE ONLY JUST BEGUN’ IS RELEASED ON MINISTRY OF SOUND RECORDINGS ON 28 OCTOBER
