Video Premiere: A1 Bassline "Breakaway"
- Words: Patric Fallon
Looking something like a mix between Gummo and This is England, this piece for young London producer A1 Bassline is easily one of the coolest and strangest videos we've seen in a while. Director TOMISOKREALLY presents a sort of stream-of-consciousness portrait of delinquent youth throughout the nooks and crannies of South England, and eventually delves into some violent imagery that's entirely relatable while verging on surreal. The deep grooves and filtered synths of DJ/producer Christian Sibthorpe's "Breakaway" (out now via Pets Recordings) play out over the gritty VHS footage—offering yet another reason why this video is so hypnotically captivating.
