Renowned producer Wax Tailor, in collaboration with the US Rap sensation D Smoke have released their official music video for song ‘Keep It Movin’.

Wax Tailor, on the other hand, has won numerous awards including US Indie Music Award, Sacem Great Prize and French Music Award). He has done prestigious collaborations and remixes through the years (Aloe Blacc, Nina Simone, Sharon Jones, Ghostface Killah, R.A The Rugged Man, Tricky, Charlie Winston, Keziah Jones), and is recognized as one of the leaders of the international hip hop electro scene.
A core member of the team reveals a little more about the “behind the scenes” dynamics for creating the music video; “For the music video, we had to deal with the lockdown and no opportunity to organize a usual shooting. So, instead of postponing, Wax Tailor, D Smoke & Hugo Dauffy (the Director) took the challenge and bypast the obstacle. They transformed it into a creative video with a homemade vibe. It was also a way to illustrate the topic to “Keep It movin” no matter the circumstances, by any means necessary and by any technology. The team worked internationally, shooting in L.A, Paris and London for a final music video that combines innovative stop motion and 3D animation techniques.”
