Alex Gaudino - Destination Calabria
"Destination Calabria" is a DJ track by Italian producer Alex Gaudino, with vocals by Crystal Waters. It is the first single released from his debut album My Destination
The track is a mashup, taking the instrumental from Rune's "Calabria" and the vocals from Alex Gaudino's and Crystal Waters' "Destination Unknown", both originally released in 2003. It was produced with the help of Maurizio Nari and Ronnie Milani, matching the saxophone hook/riff from "Calabria" to Crystal Waters's voice. The music video is directed by Eran "Rani" Creevy and produced by Ben Pugh for Ministry of Sound. It features female dancers in highly sexualized green marching band costumes, pretending to play various instruments in a seductive manner, with choreography by David Leighton. In some scenes, seemingly hundreds of the dancers are seen at once, but these are simply the original eight replicated many times using digital imagery.
Waters herself does not appear in the video, with some of the marching band members miming her lyrics.
