Octavian: “Poison” - 3 mins 12s
There are shades of ‘The Matrix’ to this Octavian promo, as he and guest stars Santi and Obongjayar meet a pair of white-dreadlocked bouncers outside a club seemingly beyond our plane of existence. Entry requires an injection to the wrist, soundtracked by a granular, electronic scream. What greets them is a club night like no other.
At first glance, the trio are in their element while they enjoy some, ahem, sensual hospitality - much of which is seductively rendered via infrared camera. As the party continues, however, it becomes apparent that the three are hardly the ones in control... a deliberate twist on the rap genre’s often troubling hierarchy.
