Shanghai Gets Surreal in Brodinski’s Video for “Us" Featuring Bloody Jay

Iconoclast director Jérémie Rozan unveils the dreamlike music video for Brodinski’s new track, “Us” featuring Atlanta rapper Bloody Jay, off his forthcoming album Brava, out March 2nd via Bromance Records/Parlophone/Warner Records. Brava is the hotly anticipated full-length debut from the French DJ/producer, and promises to be heavy on more collaborations with other Southern rap and producing heavyweights, including Slim Thug, Peewee Longway, and iLoveMakonnen.

Jérémie Rozan teams with Brodinski to create a smoke-induced Eastern fantasy that is by turns playful, disturbing and beautiful. The clip opens with a view of the skyline from the penthouse floor of the Shanghai Hyatt, where Brodinski lounges in the middle of a gang of real-life Triad boys. After smoking an opium-like drug, Brodinski lands in an ancient Chinese village and begins to navigate a fantastical world of both delight and menace.

Rozan unleashes a disorienting clash of visuals from the Western world, ancient Chinese culture and the futuristic newness of Shanghai. From traditional Chinese dancers twerking, to animatronic toys being walked on a leash, to a suspended motorcycle swinging through the air; Rozan’s richly colored vignettes blur the line between delusion and hyper-realism, as the throbbing tones and distorted crooning of the music propel us through the drug-fuelled trip.

Jérémie Rozan is a filmmaker and the founder of Surface to Air - a unique international company that transcends creative realms, from fashion to graphics, photography, design, music and film. Special collaborations with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, and i-D, along with a complete ready-to-wear collection are just a small part of his iconic brand. Rozan has directed music videos for the likes of Justice, Chromeo, The Streets, and Kid Cudi, and is represented by Iconcolast internationally.
