DJ Shadow has unveiled the music video for the song “Nobody Speak” featuring Run The Jewels, a standout track from his latest album ‘The Mountain Will Fall,’ out now on Mass Appeal Records. The video depicts a meeting of leaders that quickly descends into chaos, a scene not unlike what is unfolding in governments around the globe. It also features appearances by DJ Shadow and Run The Jewels.
Says DJ Shadow: “We wanted to make a positive, life-affirming video that captures politicians at their election-year best. We got this instead.”
Says Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike: “It’s such a dope video. It’s what I really wish Trump and Hillary would just do and get it over with…And even in that fight I think Hillary would win – and that’s not an endorsement.”
The video was directed by Sam Pilling and produced by Pulse Films, stars Igor Tsyshkevych and Ian Bailey, and was shot in NYC, London and Ukraine.
Offering another take on Elliott Power’s new track, ‘On The Windrush’ sees member of UNKLE and co-founder of Mo’Wax, James Lavelle step up to remix under the moniker of Unkle Reconstruction.
A song of two halves, On The Windrush begins with Power’s seductive spoken word monologue juxtaposed against the backdrop of production partner, Dorian Lutz’s staccato beats and brooding melodies.
Influenced by the idea of dystopia and of being propelled in to a dark fate with minor hints of optimism; ‘On The Windrush’ is accompanied by a video directed by Sam Pilling (The Weeknd, Drake, Two Door Cinema Club). Centring on a solitary half-man, half-alien creature that is left to wander a post-apocalyptic environment, the video elegantly mirrors Power’s darkly sentiment and mounting tension throughout the track.
‘On The Windrush’ is an assertive nod to the musical terrene set to be unveiled by Elliott Power, with his much anticipated debut album penned for early 2015.
