Today, Moon King (Daniel Benjamin) shares a visual for the alternative-version of single “Ordinary Lover”, which features vocals from Detroit singer Natty G. Following the release of his dance / lo-fi pop tape, Hamtramck ’16 on Arbutus Records, Daniel & Natty G share, “We hope this video can be a helpful tool in the fight against FOMO – 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 Bronwyn Ford adds, “…it’s 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.”
I work, live and play in Minneapolis.
I try to tell the story of the people that create music and experiences through pictures as well as through words.
