Control the Party

by Andrew MacGregor


Prospa: “Control the Party” - 4 mins 41s

Prospa's militant club banger ‘Control the Party' receives an equally thumping promo courtesy of director Jak Payne, who certainly wears his influences on his sleeve. Riffing on sci-fi horror tropes and clandestine government experiments, Payne subjects the protagonist (model Alice Dellal) to a short, sharp stay in a remote facility.

Part escape flick, part strobe-lit nightmare, the action is propelled by Harvey Blumler and Gosha Smith's balls-to-the-wall beat and menacing synths. The result is something that would make bands like The Prodigy proud and certain government officials very nervous indeed.
