…The Most Fantastic Video!
Most records we put out don’t continue along developing new facets well after the release date. Our William Onyeabor album is different, we have so many amazing things still to come. For record store day we have an album of fantastic remixes and covers coming out with tracks by Hot Chip, Javelin, Optimo, Joakim, Justin Strauss and more. We also have a very exciting 30 minute documentary coming in a month or so about William directed by Jake Sumner and produced by Alldayeveryday. And -right now- we have this sweet and wonderful video directed by Adam Bainbridge (who records under the name Kindness). Adam and his co-director Camilla Wasserman went deep into the NYC roller disco community of Central Park and created this video that challenges our vision of what is a Fantastic Man. Produced in a special collaboration with NOWNESS (www.nowness.com) and shot with 16 mm film, the dancing skaters and Onyeabor’s song compliment each other in the sun drenched lofts and rooftops of this fantastic city.
