Biblical Scenes for the First Album from DVA on Hyperdub
Dean Blunt of Hype Williams does the video of “Where I Belong”
On March 19th, Hyperdub will release “Pretty Ugly,” the debut album of veteran London producer DVA. “Where I Belong” is its dark first single, and it has a video clip with a background that is no less somber, handled by the always sharp—in his own macabre way, of course—Dean Blunt. The brain behind Hype Williams is re-releasing an old animation showing a crucifixion to give highly suitable visual packaging to the gloomy wind sections that dominate the song. And if that wasn’t enough, Blunt himself makes a stellar appearance in the middle of the storm, like a smoking deity.
