Jarv Dee x Bad Colours – ‘Clouds’ feat. Shabazz Palaces 

Jarv Dee has mastered the fusion of hip-hop lyricism with the ethereal soundscape of house music, and stands out by consistently experimenting and curating new ways to take the mainstream to the next level. In his upcoming EP, ‘BlakHouse’, which sees him collaborate with Bad Colours, Jarv Dee explores this experimental, alternative side of his artistry.

The music video for ‘Clouds’ sees the viewer taken above the world with a heightened state of mind. Jarv Dee’s smooth-talking, fluid flow is paired with warped background vocals that connect harmoniously with the hypnotizing visuals. ‘Clouds’ is all about feeling comfortable in your own skin and travelling through life at your own speed. With trippy visuals and whip smart editing the viewer is lulled into a trance-like state. Already a polished track with a ritzy and flashy aesthetic, this is further emphasized by the black and white colour scheme of the video. The track is elevated with the feature of legendary alternative hip hop artist Shabazz Palaces. Splicing the eclectic styles of both Jarv Dee and Shabazz Palaces we are left with a rhythmic, body-moving single and an equally groovy music video.

Let the music video for ‘Clouds’ sweep you away. You can check out more about Jarv Dee and his sounds online on Instagram.
