Video: William Kouam Djoko "Deflourished"
- Words: DeForrest Brown
Rising from an epiphanic experience, the video for William Kouam Djoko's "Deflourished" single (forthcoming via Tom Trago's Voyage Direct imprint) is a kaleidoscopic dream work of animation. William's penchant for interlacing African drums into his house influences makes for blissful dance music, as each beat is layered by yet another skittering, polyrhythmic drum pattern. Together, the track and video assert an entrancing state while vocals sustain over wonky rhythms and animated creatures engage in a euphoric primal dance. Everything eventually unfolds into a flurry of dazzling explosions and voodoo images before its abrupt ending.
