Check out the new release from SBC artist, MaJiK! “Making History”
MaJiK had contacted me to help him produce a entry for the “So You Think You Can Rap” contest (Hosted by Prince Ea and Mike Kalombo) . I replied saying “shoot me an e-mail with all the details and I’ll get back to you”. On a Sunday, MaJiK came down to the studio to record the track. I hadn’t heard the track until then. It was interesting different, but I knew it was going to take some time to get used to. After a few hours, we had finally gotten the recording down and it was time to mixdown the track!
I sent MaJiK home to change while I mixed and came up with the treatment for the music video. Since the overall vibe of the song was a bit dark, especially with the dubstep qualities, I felt a industrial location would be perfect. And I knew of a perfect location in Industry, CA. I had originally planned to shoot the video at dawn, but I kept forgetting all my equipment back at the lab. After countless trips back and forth the sun had completely set and the vibe of the location had drastically changed.
Once the shooting was complete I headed home to edit the video and came up with a rough edit that night. I was aiming for a very grime/industrial look to fit the overall vibe of the song. I thought it came out well. My favorite shoots were the shots of MaJiK’s silhouette doing large hand gestures.
