Published Aug 17, 2017Moon King (a.k.a. Daniel Benjamin) hit the dancefloor earlier this month with Hamtramck '16, and he's now shared a visual for a Natty G-assisted version of his single "Ordinary Lover."
Directed by Bronwyn Ford, the clip finds a cast of characters busting their moves on standard definition video. "We hope this video can be a helpful tool in the fight against FOMO," Benjamin and Natty G said in a statement. "If you feel like you can't make it out the door to the rave or perhaps don't know when your next rave sesh will be, peep this vid for some inspiration, motivation, liberation, and/or perspiration."
Director Ford added that the video is "inspired by the 1995 Gabber documentary Lola da Musica. In the documentary, there are scenes of people dancing in front of a white backdrop. As a homage to this, and the classic era of dance music and early music videos, the dancers are shot in front of a similar setting. This simplicity allows the focus to remain on the dancing and music."
Hamtramck '16 is out now through Arbutus. Moon King has several North American tour dates coming up, and you can see them all here.
