DJ PREMIER:

I HAVE NEVER BEEN AFRAID TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT WHEN IT COMES TO CREATIVITY AND LEADING BY NOT GIVING A FUCK. THEREFORE I AM CURRENTLY ON TOUR IN EUROPE SHARPENING MY SKILLS WITH A BAND WHICH WE DECIDED TO NAME OURSELVES “DJ PREMIER & THE BADDER

WE WERE PLAYING AROUND IN THE STUDIO AT OUR SECOND REHEARSAL WAITING FOR OUR BASS PLAYER (BRADY WATT) TO ARRIVE AND MY TRUMPET/KEYBOARD PLAYER (TAKU) STARTED PLAYING THIS KEYBOARD RIFF AND I WAS SCRATCHING THE “LET’S GET DOWN” LINE AND THEN OUR DRUMMER (LENNY “THE OX”) JOINED IN…NEXT THING YOU KNOW MY ENGINEER (PARKS) RECORDED IT, AND WE RE-RECORDED IT WITH THE REST OF THE BAND. SHOUT TO OUR TROMBONE PLAYER (COREY KING) WHO’S ON ANOTHER TOUR AND DOPE WELCOME TO (MARK WILLIAMS) WHO WORKED OUT PERFECTLY JOINING OUR BAND IN PLACE OF HIM. MY LONGTIME PHOTOGRAPHER DANIEL HASTINGS (“HARD TO EARN“) (“RETURN OF THE BOOM BAP“), (“THE SUN RISES IN THE EAST“), (“MOMENT OF TRUTH“), (“THE OWNERZ“), (“WRATH OF THE MATH“) LET US COME TO HIS STUDIO IN HARLEM A FEW DAYS BEFORE HITTIN’ THE ROAD AND WE SHOT THIS VIDEO ON GREEN SCREEN EXCEPT FOR (TAKU) BECAUSE HE WAS ON THE ROAD IN JAPAN…

WHEN WE DID OPENING NIGHT IN HAMBURG, GERMANY, DJ MIRKO MACHINE AND A FEW OTHERS LOCATED SOME CAMERA MEN TO COME DO A QUICK SHOOT OF TAKU AT SOUND CHECK AND TAKU’S FOOTAGE WAS SENT TO NEW YORK AND WE GOT HIM IN THE VIDEO AND MADE IT WORK.

HERE IS HOW IT CAME OUT….

SHOUTS TO YANNICK REQUIS, IAN SCHWARTZMAN AND YUJI FOR THE IDEA OF DOING THIS BAND PROJECT…

BPATTER” THA NEW VIDEO…

Video Directed by Hastings & Santana of Atomicus Films
