This is the really rather ace new video from Musick's friend (and yours) Dan Black. It references all kinds of movie genres and is the best thing we've seen all day long! The song, 'Symphonies', is the new version of this and comes with a rather long and not uninteresting story, and we'd like to outline the key plot lines below:
- 'Hypntz' appears online and the blogs they go crazy
- Album samplers circulate featuring 'Hypntz' and Dan's record company pick it as the next single
- Just before the video is due to be filmed the estate of Notorious B.I.G (who own the rights to the original lyrics) decide to stop the single going ahead.
- The other samples (Rihanna's 'Umbrella' and samples from some old film) are allowed to remain (the Rihanna loop is actually just some old Garage band sample that anyone could use), so the song's lyrics are re-written.
- Ta-dah, 'Symphonies' is born. You can sense some of the bitterness in the new lyric, no? A little bit maybe...
Brilliant video. The song suffers to these ears from slight over-exposure, but to those that have yet to hear it I'm sure it will sound like pure joy.
