Jimmy Whoo "Motel Music Part II" (Johnny Hardstaff, dir.)


Motel Music Part II, a short film directed by Johnny Hardstaff for French artist Jimmy Whoo, closes out Whoo's Motel Music chapters (2014-2017) with a twisted tale about men and motors.

A lynchpin of the Parisian music scene, Jimmy Whoo is a renowned DJ, producer, and curator, and the founder of label Grand Ville Records. Whoo’s 2017 mixtape, Motel Music Part II, is the culmination of his time spent with other artists on the scene, and works in a mix of jazz, soul, and hip-hop influences, whilst maintaining the modern electronic feel for which he’s best known.

Fisher "Ya Kidding" (Christopher Arcella, dir.)

Intenationally renowned foot model SweetFeet (Khadija Griffith) accidentally drools some of her smoothie on her new suede kicks. Panic sets in along with the stain and a journey to the bodega for more FISH-N-KICKS shoe cleaner leads to a series of bizarre situations including a kick battle with another sneaker freak (Mitzi Akaha).

Loyle Carner "Sun of Jean" (Joao Retorta, dir.)

With his debut album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ nominated for tonight prestigious Mercury prize, Loyle Carner releases the new video for ‘Sun of Jean’ with Joao Retorta back at the helm.  

A nostalgic, honest and delicate depiction of unconditional love between mothers and their sons, exquisitely executed by Joao.

Everything crossed for tonight, a worthy winner we reckon.

X-Ambassadors "Ahead Of Myself" (Jake Kovnat, dir.)

A great journey of a music video that's especially notable for two reasons: 

1. Singer Sam Harris delivers a live vocal in the video, instead of lip-syncing, which is trick rarely attempted in music videos. My favorite example? Bruce Springsteen's post Born In The USA videos, starting with "Brilliant Disguise," which director Meiert Avis brilliantly breaks down on his detailed blog.

2. It's shot in Rochester, which used to be a film town, so there's some resonance there. And, it's somewhat close to X-Amabassadors' Ithaca hometown.
