North London rapper Headie One has dropped new single ‘Back to Basics’ with an accompanying video from Black Dog Film’s Hugo Jenkins.
The track features Skepta in his first collaboration since the release of his new album ‘Ignorance is Bliss’ and follows Headie One’s singles ‘18Hunna’ (featuring Dave) and ‘All Day’ – all featuring on Headie’s new mixtape ‘Music X Road’.
Hugo, who was previously nominated for a MOBO Award, has directed videos for the likes of J Hus, Maribou State, Grandbrothers, and George Fitzgerald.
Man's Best Friend winds up going where no man has gone before in this fantastical sci-fi video in which a dog gets trained and equipped to operate some high-speed machines to destinations seriously unknown.
Lots of stars, both in terms of the features by Big Sean, Rae Sremmurd, Pharrell Williams and Quavo, and in terms of the multiple suns that hover above the desert in this collabo video for producer Mike Will Made It.
"Water Baby" by Tom Misch ft. Loyle Carner, Directed by Georgia Hudson is a picturesque piece with blissful choreography captured on the icy sheets of a frozen lake, featuring Tom Misch's effortlessly cool vocals to match the frigid surroundings.
I thought that Water Baby wanted to be something poetic and subtly surreal that gave time to the lyrics and felt like a good flowing piece of liquid like restraint. The track has a kind of honest simplicity, it also has a proper classic groove to it, so I wanted to go in with some old school, simple, stripped back dancing to match - I saw the video immediately when I heard it, that first shot of a person dancing from a frozen sky, lucidly tripping at moonlight, I’m a sucker for a beautiful image.
Sônge embodies a strange alien goddess who is worshipped by the population of an industrial neon city. The goddesses' long blue underarm hair comes as the centrepiece of her power in ‘I Come From Pain’ directed by Zhang+Knight.
Davis Sillis, director: "We think of cocoons as a source of comfort and protection. Where we can isolate ourselves from the dangers of the outside world. But I wanted to explore another side of what can happen when we isolate ourselves so much, we become capable of doing the unimaginable. Using classic fairytale tropes, the idea was to create a video that felt like a visual antithesis to the music, densely packed with metaphor."
Georgia Hudson takes us on an energetic choreographed journey through the night time streets of London for Nimmo's latest 'Dancing Makes Us Brave’.
Georgia Hudson, director: Making this video was an absolute mad pleasure, right from the get go. Before this track was born, I had written a short film called 'Club Relief' about the seeking of self on a night out and when I heard this song and met the Nimmo girls I couldn't keep it back, it felt like the right image for them and the right song for me. Nimmo were so open to including the Club Relief title within the video, which kind of goes to illustrate how respectful of creative collaboration they are - it is a beautiful treat to feel like you are working with an artist rather than for them. Laura Clayton commissioned this and she was able to have brought together people who feel the same things in our stomaches, I couldn't be happier with the process or the end result really - We had a stella crew including choreography by the skin shaking Holly Blakey, styling by Hannah Hopkins who always manages to sneak in something sensual - latex/fur/frills and everyone on our substantially female based team pulled no punches for this, it was a huge effort motivated by the spirit of something special, in large part that had to be the Nimmo girls, their enthusiasm and open hearts was an infectious drive in the process and my producers Katie Lambert and Ailsa Vanessa Tapping who enabled our wildest demands to come true, the power of good energy provides more than the budget sometimes.
We shot this over a temperate summers night in East London, lensed by Marc Gomez Del Moral - a bit of a coup to work with someone as sensitive and talented as him, infamous Richard James Lewis on steadicam unflinching as he had to back out of a club across a road ahead of moving cars while having his (not alexa mini) head doing a 360, steadicam always has to work so hard on music videos! Respect to them! Our incredible dancers bringing relentless drive to the visuals, Gianna G really blew me away with her free styling that you see near the start of the video, immense fluidity. I think that dancing does make us brave actually, and so does working with good people. Adrenalin rushes all round, hope it feels as good to watch as it did to make, its the right season to be heading out into the night."
