Rone takes off to Mirapolis: Watch Rone's new colourful journey imagined by his sister and Parisian illustrator Aurélie Castex

Rone announces a new EP including 3 remixes of the flamboyant and off-kilter title track from his latest album, produced by Johannes Brecht, Laurent Garnier, Mathias Aguayo, out on October 5.

"Mirapolis" is one of the last solo tracks that the producer composed in the spring of 2017: "I wanted to record a festive track, which completely stands by its ‘funfair’ vibe.” With this new four-track EP (including three remixes), combined with a new video by Aurélie Castex (Erwan's sister), Rone extends the carnival of electronic cultures of his latest musical citadel to the dancefloor – and our screens.

In infinite space, a tiny woman pilots a paper plane. On the Mirapolis planet, among a crowd of burlesque characters, a man swallows it by accident. He finds himself instantly tiny on his turn. Then begins for him a crazy race. He will cross giant shoes, dive into the seabed of a tin can, will climb on a planet that smokes a pipe... until a big party in which a merry and motley crowd dances on the shoulders of a giant: Rone.
