South London pianist Ashley Henry continues to prep his upcoming major label debut, Beautiful Vinyl Hunter, by unveiling the visual for lead track ‘THE MIGHTY’.
Directed by young British visual artist Vikesh Govind the clip features Waddah Sinada; a London based dance artist, choreographer and a founding member of a dance collective ‘Fubunation’. Throughout the video Sinada expertly melds contact improvisation forms with influences of hip-hop and African dance styles.
Henry explains “I wanted the video to be shot in south London not just because I grew up there but also because it played such a huge part in sound system culture and the sub-genres that have formed/developed from that, such as UK Garage, Grime, dubstep and D&B, which are a massive influence on my music”.
It’s a wonderful companion piece to the track and Govind brilliantly captures the scenes of South London with tall buildings and council estates as well as highlighting the nature and beauty that can be found there through seamless movement and varying backdrops.
Watch up top.
Beautiful Vinyl Hunter will be released On 06/09 via Sony Records. Pre-order here.
