Jérémie Rozan drops the dreamlike new music video for Brodinski’s “Us” featuring Atlanta rapper Bloody Jay, off his forthcoming debut album Brava, out March 2nd via Bromance Records/Parlophone/Warner Records.
The Iconoclast director and Surface to Air founder creates a smoke-induced Eastern fantasy that is by turns playful, disturbing and beautiful. Opening with a view of the Shanghai skyline from the penthouse of the Hyatt, we see Brodinksi lounging in the middle of a gang of real-life Triad boys. After smoking an opium-like drug, the French DJ/producer lands in an ancient Chinese village and begins to navigate a fantastical world of both delight and menace.
Rozan unleashes a disorienting clash of visuals from the Western world, ancient Chinese culture and the futuristic newness of Shanghai. From traditional Chinese dancers twerking, to animatronic toys being walked on a leash, to a suspended motorcycle swinging through the air; Rozan’s richly colored vignettes blur the line between delusion and hyper-realism, as the throbbing tones and distorted crooning of the music propel us through the drug-fuelled trip.
